On your other question, if it is known that the baby will have a serious genetic defect. The choice to abort would be a choice of convenience.
That's a matter of opinion. Some people might think that intentionally bringing a child into the world with a serious genetic defect is bad judgment.
Shouldn't you allow for that child to eventually decide on its own whether it wants to live or die?
So you think it's a good idea to bring someone into the world that lives such a miserable life that they want to die? The reality is that it's people who play God wrt children w/ serious birth defects. Many of these babies would never make out of the hospital except for the extreme medical care they receive just to keep them alive so they can go on to lead difficult and dependent lives.
What a sad story it would have been to take that life and opportunity away from him.
Actually it wouldn't have been a story at all.
