If your unborn child was diagnosed with trisomy 18 would you continue the pregnancy? 

Just a few statistics on this condition:

Half of these children die in utero.

Of those born, half will die by two months.

And of those that live till two months, 5-10% will survive the first year of life.

Any amount of time with my beautiful child is better than murdering it for something neither I nor it could help.

I would say thats a very personal and emotional decision that I would discuss with my husband and no one else.

I would probably abort, however I've never been in that situation, so I'm not 100% sure of anything.

Same thoughts.

Quoting Sparklepants747:

Oh for fucks sake.
Let me help you here

The pro choice people would abort.
The pro life people would keep it.



So basically, this is yet again, another "are you pro
Life or pro choice" drama post
