MACON, Ga. — A Georgia woman completed her college psychology test last week while she was in labor.

Tommitrise Collins, 21, was ready to deliver her baby at Coliseum Medical Center — but first, she had to take an online test. The Middle Georgia State University student told WAGA she could only take the exam on that day.

Collins finished the test in less than two hours. Her shared a photo on Facebook that shows Collins sitting on her hospital bed while taking the test. The photo has been shared over 14,000 times.

This is what you call “Strong Priorities”. Contractions 3 minutes apart and still takes her Psychology Test! You are going to be a great Mom baby sis!

After 20 hours of labor, Collins delivered a healthy baby girl. Tyler Elise weighed 7 pounds and 10 ounces, Collins told WAGA.

Collins, who has a 3.6 GPA, will graduate in December of 2016 with a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice.

    Are you serious? Racist jerk. What you should be mad about is the prof forced her to take the exam while in labour!

    Liberal means the same thing as Communist. When I was in college, graduate school, then dental school people got married first, then had kids. I worked when I was in school instead of knocking some girl up. Nowadays with Medicaid paying for prenatal OB appts, the entire multi-thousand dollar delivery and post delivery care, child and new mother healthcare women think nothing about getting knocked up on a whim. You can bet this woman is on food stamps and every other government handout available. I’ve seen women of ALL RACES who’ve worked for me joke about lying to the government to get food stamps, Medicaid healthcare for their illegitimate kids, housing subsidies, etc. I’ve seen them take their government furnished credit card and buy the best steaks in the store, the biggest shrimp, and other luxury items while people who work buy ground meat, less expensive cuts of meat, and learn to live within their means. The government has taken the place of a husband, especially in the black communities where 72.3 percent of non-Hispanic blacks are now born out-of-wedlock. Also 66.2 percent of American Indians/Alaska Natives; 53.3 percent of Hispanics; 29.1 percent of non-Hispanic whites; and 17.2 percent of Asians/Pacific Islanders have illegitimate kids. I agree with Jesse Jackson on one point when he said “Welfare has ruined the black race”.
