Did you vote in the "Birth Or Not" poll?

I personally find this whole thing absolutely DISGUSTING but I find it interesting that since yesterday the poll on http://www.birthornot.com/ has jumped from only 20% saying "abort" to 40% and "Give Birth" has dropped from 80% to 60%.

They also posted new 17 week ultra sound pictures.

Did you vote? What are your thoughts on the situation?

  • Those people are seriously disgusting and should strongly consider seeing mental help! Ditto to what Apry said though.

  • Supposedly. They've been doing a lot of interviews and saying that they want people to have the option of voting on an actual unborn baby instead of just an issue.

    I personally think they both need their screws tightened!

  • I pray this is NOT real, but what a sick joke that would be! That poor poor baby. Yes, I voted, to give birth!

  • Honestly, I think it's a hoax. I personally feel it will come out later that it was a study or something rather than an actual pregnancy. However, if it's not, my thought is they shouldn't be having children if they are willing to leave something like this up to the public... And should it be real and they actually keep the poor child, I don't even want to think about the issues that wait down the road. It's one thing to find out your parents wanted to give you up or abort you, it's a completely different thing to find out they decided to leave it up to an internet poll...

    But yes, I did vote, since, like I said, I feel it's a fake.

    That's why I believe it's fake. I think this is an attempt to really get a feel for how people actually feel about abortion. Many people in the US are pro-choice, even though they are anti-abortion, myself included. And personally I think this experiment is meant to see how people actually vote when they think there is a baby in the mix rather than just an abstract "what if" kind of thing...
