This is not an abortion debate. This is a hypothetical question.
If you carry a serious genetic defect and were pregnant, with a 100% chance that this baby would pass away at birth, in pain, would you continue the pregnancy? You do the research, you know the facts. You may have another child with this same defect already that has passed away right after birth (quite common when finding these).
So many are saying in the abortion debate thread that abortion is wrong in all cases unless it will kill the mother, despite what other facts there are. So what is your view in this situation? It is not using abortion as birth control.
Would you want the baby born regardless? Would you prefer to abort as you face the death of the child either way, and this way while you will suffer, your baby will not nor will any other children you may have, or other family members, as they won't necessarily even be aware? Why?
Do not be mean, just be honest.
