I was just wondering what people think about someone having an abortion for babies with disabilities. do you think its ok or not. If you knew that for sure your baby would be severly disabled would you let him/or her be born and have to live like that or not?? I dont know what I would do.Answer Question

I think it depend on the extent of the disability. If you knew for a fact that the child would die with in moments of birth.... some might want to make that choice.
But if it is for something that you view as an inconvenience... let me ask you this:
If you knew that your healthy beautiful baby boy would be born with and above average intelligence but fall into drugs while in high school bankrupting the family and then killing someone while he drove under the influence... would you abort?
THAT seems like more of a heart ache... as well as a menace to society than a child who has down syndrome.

Click on the link below ....
This is a short 7 minute video on a website about a man who was born without arms and legs. Watch this man, and tell me that he might have been better off being aborted because he has a disability. You never know what God has planned for you and your children, regardless of their weaknesses.
I would NEVER abort a baby that is disabled.

I would have an abortion. I have 3 children with genetic diseases. Having disabled kids often means the loss of your marriage and home and living in poverty. Spending years at the children's hospital I saw it happen to so many families. Now that we know we have bad genes my 30 yo has had a vasectomy and my 22 yo is scheduled to have one. My 27 yo has one son that has the disease and they aren't planning on having more.
