This isn't a question for someone to judge someone else on. This is a very personal decision that nobody can make for someone else. Alot of people say "I wouldn't" but you can't really say that unless you've been put in that situation before. My daughter was diagnosed with spina bifida early in the pregnancy. The doctor told us to consider abortion because she would never walk and most likely would be mentally handicapped. I'm not going to lie, we considered it. But for us, our own personal choice, we decided to keep her. We had tried for 2 1/2 years and the thought of terminating a pregnancy that we wanted soooo bad was just not going to happen. My daughter is now 5 and I couldn't imagine my life without her. She's my shining star and I thank God, or whoever you believe in, every day for her.
