you knew the baby would have paranoid schizophrenia?

I see people say they would do it if the baby was gonna have genetic illnesses from incest. So where do you draw the line. Being a schizophrenic is a horrible life and probably just as miserable as being disabled from other things.

I think maybe people abort for incest because it's upsetting for them, and not because of the health of the baby.

Yes or Down syndrome, severe to moderate Autism, mental retardation, cleft palate, a midget, born with no legs. I'd abort for all of those.

I know nothing about it so I really can't say. But when it comes down to it I don't think I ckuld ever actually go through with an abortion no matter the circumstance the what ifs would get me to much and I can't stand the thought. However I've never been put into that situation so I really just dont know.

Cause why?

Are you not prepared to have a child who has unforeseen illnesses? Cause all children usually do.

Did you not plan financially? Or emotionally? What will you do?

Quoting jellybeanjean: Yes I think so

Cleft palate?

They fix that with surgery.

I sure would.

I don't require a "good enough reason" before I'll give it a pass. To me, all that's needed is a woman who wants an abortion.

Yup. I'd abort if I knew that the child was going to have any type of mental issues that require life long therapy and meds. Schizophrenia, bipolar, whatever.
