If this happens to your unborn baby, what will you do? There are parents who insist on having the baby 'cos they believer that it is their responsibility to take care of the little life that they have made. While some parents who will choose to abort because they do not want the baby to suffer when it is born. I feel there is no right or wrong, it really boils down to what is your beliefs and whether you are able to cope emotioally and physically. Also, it also depdends on the advice given by the doctor. What will you do?

I will not allow that baby to born!! not because I can not able to take care of her but because i don't want my baby to suffer!!! Life is very hard if you are abnormal... I don't believe in living life to suffer!!! if you don't have solution than finish the problem!! this is just my opinion.

I believe I would want to keep the baby unless he was sure to suffer pain with the abnormality. If he want mentally retarded or had some disability that he would not be in pain because of I would want to keep him. These children are usually very loving and I feel they certainly have their place in the world and a lot to contribute.

I have to make sure how deep would be the abnormality. If it is just little abnormality and I think it couldnt interfere on the normal life of my would-be baby, Ill keep her/him because they habve the right to live. But if ever it isnt possible for the baby to live a normal life because the abnormality is so large, i will be forever sorry to him/her but i have to abort her/him. And im doing her/him a favor in doing so so that he/she wouldnt suffer in this cruel life.

I think it is extremely wrong and extremely selfish to bring up a child in the world when you know it will never be able to live a normal life. Life is hard enough as it is for everyone without adding difficulties to it. Governments should forbide it. Because at the end of the day... it is the tax payers who are footing the bill for all the medical attention that child will require during its life. While the parents don't contribute a cent to it. Not only that... but they stop working so that they can take care of their child 24/7. I think we need to stop the insanity. We have a population growing out of control as we are heading for 9 billion by 2040... and we continue to have selfish people wanting to add to it with disable babies. For my part... I think people are nuts.
