Okay, so I'm watching Law & Order: CI, I've seen this episode a few times, and it always creates huge questions for me. The idea of the episode is of course murder, but the plot surrounds a woman who wasn't given the option for genetic testing and her daughter was born with disabilities. Because of this she (the mother) filed a "wrongful life" suit... I am Pro-Choice, but I don't think I could ever get up in front of a court and say I wish I had aborted my child... On the other hand, I can understand the want or need to have the money to make sure your child is cared for once you are gone...
Question: What do you think of "wrongful life" suits? And/Or the parents who file them?

I'm reading a Jodi Picoult novel right now Handle With Care that is about this. I'm not sure what I would do in that situation, but I would definitely want the opportunity to make my own decision.
