When a foreigner or illegal alien (non-US citizen) comes to the USA to have a baby for the purpose of making the baby a US citizen. The baby becomes a US citizen giving the illegal alien/foreign parent and their family grounds to come to and stay in the US and become eligible for government benefits. Also called a "jackpot baby".

an anchor baby is a term used for when an illegal alien mother-to-be hops the border into the country right when she's ready to deliver the baby, and gives birth to the child inside the country, in order to gain legal residental status in the country, due to her child automatically being a citizen of that country, by virtue of being born in the country.

1. A term used when European military leaders would rape African queens, for the purpose of having offspring, so that they would become co-rulers of the queen's land. Once these anchor babies were born and the queen was murdered or deceased the king (only living progenitor of the anchor baby) would turn the matriarchal society into that of a patriarchal one.

2. A modern day term used by Conservative Republicans, during the Obama administration to fight a policy called the Dream Act, which was an immigration policy which allowed children, who were illegal immigrant to become citizens. Used as a racially charged epithet, it was suggested by Conservative Republicans that illegal immigrants (only from Mexico) would come to America to have babies to gain citizenship.
1. All the countries on the African continent were ruled by matriarchal systems until the inception of the anchor baby.

What your girlfriend hopes to achieve by "forgetting" to taker her pill, thus guaranteeing that you'll have to spend the rest of your now ruined life with her... or that you'll have to run from the law forever to avoid child support.
I caught my girlfriend flushing her pill and poking holes in all the condoms... I think she wants an anchor baby.
