  • No. It wouldn't. Because noone knows for sure what they are going to do until the moment they choose.

  • Well, if she's psychic enough to know this about the baby's future, why doesn't she just not get pregnant in the first place?

  • Nope. The knowledge alone would be enough for her to make great changes in the baby's future, whether it's something simple like moving to raise the child elsewhere or being hypervigilent for signs of sociopathy to have him committed as soon as possible.

  • Life will happen as it is written. If it was meant for the child to be born to carry out the plan it would happen. She can't change history. It's already been written.
