Thread Name: BS: Abortion: Here we go PART 2
Subject: RE: BS: Abortion: Here we go PART 2
No flame, but no-one, in the parts of this I've read, has mentioned one issue. A friend of mine carries a gene which, if active in a child, would result in its living for no more than six months, and in that time being in utter agony, unable to be held for the pain. Not all pregnancies would result in this, but some could. Her first did, and after much thought and prayer, with the father, she had an abortion. Her second child was, and is, fine. Not everyone approved of what she did. I do. There is a reason why abortion should not be carried out for any "less than perfect" child. However, not all "disabilities" are liveable with, and she could not face delivering a child into hell.
