babies in the womb cannot smile. It's an involuntary muscle contraction due to their being undeveloped and not used. that's assuming the baby is actuall at the point in gestation that facial features are even discernable. Regardless, it's not a smile.<br />
I personally would not bring a child into the world that was seriously disabled. I don't think it's fair to bring a person into the world that has no chance of survival on it's own. However this is ONLY my personal opinion and if actually faced with the decision I'm not sure what I would do. BUT I do not advocate laws against abortion.<br />
It's Pro-Choice or NO Choice.
I'm confused. Did she carry it to term? Either way that's awful.
The child was born and barely comprehends life. It died in pain, confusion, and terror. unless they drugged it up to the point where it was basically asleep. That's selfish, disturbing, and should never be allowed. If a foal can't stand they put it down, because it's cruel to let something live that can't live without constant help.
No, because most abortions are performed in the FIRST trimester and most in the first 12 weeks, WAY BEFORE the baby is anything more than a clump of cells. Also after 6 months it's illegal to get an abortion unless your life is in danger. The fetus could have died at any point and possibly killed the mother, for her to carry the baby on the off chance that she would get to see it hold it and bankrupt herself taking care of it. that's Selfish. If I spent six thousand dollars to buy a car and i have no money left to pay the monthly bill I get the car for a month, then it gets reposessed, my credit's ruined, and my life could be screwed permanently, all because I wanted to drive a new BMW and not a used car.
My point is carrying a pregnancy to term knowing the baby will probably die withing 24 hours of birth is horribly selfish. Just like ruining my credit and screwing up my life to drive a BMW for One month is horribly selfish. It's called a metaphor, something they teach you along with reading comprehension. You should look into it.
I didn't want to, I find the whole situation repellant. Along with your sick fascination with cradling a dying infant.
I find it sad that you can't see how selfish and sick this is. regardless I'm done here. Abortion is legal and it will stay that way.
okay im not gonna lie...<br />
as much as that would make me feel all warm and fuzzy...i wouldnt keep it. because i do not think i am emotionally (or perhaps evern mentally) stable a enough to sucessfully raise a normal child. and with the special needs the kid would have....i just dont want to someday know im responsible for putting my own child through the same sh*t i had to go through in my life
not disabled i just have certain personality disorders and such. i dnt trust myself to raise a kid
Seriously disabled..hard decision, but I figure it would've been the right thing to terminate it rather than let it suffer throughout life.
So what was the point, then if it ended up dying anyway?
I would have done the same thing she did...let him have a chance.
...Considering one of the reasons I didn't have kids is because I didn't want to have a child who would have asthma and depression...I think you'd know what I'd do. <br />
I have chronic medical problems and I still think it would have been easier all around if I had not been medically saved as an infant.
I wouldn't have known. I wouldn't get the test to check for disability, because it wouldn't matter.
God bless her for having a heart that can feel so deeply.
I dunno im not a woman but who knows what there quality of life actually is
But what i mean is no one knows what its actually like for the kid. Tbh its her child and she can do what she wants, must of been a hard decision
Ummm, I don't think that's even possible. Still, if you want to have a baby..it makes sense to keep the pregnancy even if it might be disabled. I personally can't imagine being in a position to want a baby..so it's not something I'll likely have first hand experience with.
that's a personal choice though..many people wouldn't want to give birth to a baby that's likely to die or be ill. that's why may people with serious health issues would refrain from reproducing if they knew their kids were likely to be seriously ill. It wouldn't have been wrong for her to have made a different choice to me. It's sad either way.
When I found out I was pregnant I already determined to carry the child to full term no matter what. I started studying the rearing of various types of special needs children and prepared myself. I refused amniocentesis, because the outcome didn't matter, so I know I would also have chosen to keep any disabled baby.
I'm glad your daughter is healthy! My son was also born healthy and is now 25 years old and going to become a parent himself in August. :D
they are trying to make everyone have to see an ultrasound of the babies first. i think it is a hard choice but they do say that God will never give you more then you can handle.
i dont now if i completely believe it but i do feel you can handle almost anything with the right type of help.
thats sad :( but one things guys dont understand is how much a woman developes love for a child even before birth. im sure she felt she could deal with the struggle, some people are stronger then others.
you have no idea what God has helped people out with. just because you dont believe God will help someone does not mean its true. anyway enough fighting about God on this website. lol
