If you had testing done and found out that your child wouldn't survive after birth, would you consider anortion? What about if you discovered your baby had some kind of genetic issue or would be born with issues?

No. I have empathy for mothers in that situation but for me I wouldn't do it. I would leave things up to God.

I voted "no" because in reality I never would BUT, when I got pregnant with #2 out of the blue that was kind of the first thought. Our son was only 7 months old and I was terrified!

I don't get testing done so that will never happen. And again I wouldn't know abot any genetic issue till after birth b/c I don't believe in any form of testing unless absolutely medically necessary.

Abortion for me would ONLY be acceptabe in 2 cases: rape and a life threatening situation to the mother. In any other case I am not for it.

Absolutely NOT. If the pregnancy would kill me I would so I wouldn't leave my soon to be 4 kids without a mother but it would be awful and I would feel guilt for the rest of my life.

not for those reasons no. if keeping my baby meant for 100% sure we would both die, i would pray like CRAZY with faith that God could fix it. only after that would i even consider it. i would never willingly kill a baby, but i cant leave my boys without a mother either.

No, I would never have an abortion for any reason.

I do the testing because I want to know if the baby has an issue where he/she would be better off being born in a hospital with a NICU & neonatologists.  The closest hospital with that is 90 minutes away so while the local hospital could helicopter the baby if needed, I'd rather not go through being seperated like that or having the baby struggle because he/she needed immediate help that required a helicopter ride to get.  

I have a friend here who is currently facing potentially needing to go the 90 minutes for the birth of her baby in Nov due to the baby needing the NICU & surgery at birth.  So the possibility is very real to me.

Absolutly not! I could never do that to an innocent life. No matter the situation. Every child is a blessing to someone..
