If you knew a woman who was pregnant, who had eight children already, three who were deaf, two who were blind, one mentally retarded, and she had syphilis, would you recommend that she have an abortion?

If you knew a woman who was pregnant, who had eight children already, three who were deaf, two who were blind, one mentally retarded, and she had syphilis, would you recommend that she have an abortion?

And by the way the answer to the abortion question... If you said yes, you just killed Beethoven.


I posted an ethics question a while ago about 3 popular world leaders......This is another one I found interesting.

This post is not meant to upset anyone about abortion.

  • The answer would have been no even before I found out it was Beethoven. It's possible that the best president or the person to cure cancer has already been killed by the mother who "wasn't ready" too.

  • I would never recommend that someone have an abortion. That's between a patient, doctor and their personal beliefs and moral standards. They will be the one to live with their decision.

    wow I don't know. I hope she WOULD DEFINITELY think about it.

    WHen you write in some kind of Text words or teenage slang, it make me wonder if YOU should think about having kids. Are you 12? HAve you had any education beyond high school? Or even high school>>?

    Minne, why do you bother going anon when there are ways to confirm that it's you?  Seriously.  Not only is your MO written all over this, but the loss of points when I gave you a down vote confirmed what I already knew.  Everyone knows you are a spelling and grammar freak.  Go ahead and own it.
