Not enough characters allowed for me to finish the question in a tactful way.

Please oblige, here's the end of the question

...if you had knowledge that your child was going to be gay?

You're presuming that people are born gay. The evidence isn't there.

The question is hypothetical.

If they came up a test that could determine whether your child was gay or not, would you abort?

Not now, of course. But as a fetus I haven't even met yet?

I think I probably would.

I'd support abortion of a child who was knowingly and willingly conceived by a couple if there were quality of life issues discovered by fetal testing or in the case of rape. George is right, there is no predictor of how a child will turn out.

Nope. Not me.

That's not the question. The question is that if they were able to test and tell you if your kid was going to be gay, would you abort?

Don't think of your kids as they are now, think of them as just being a blob in a fetus.

Because I don't want that garbage in my family, so I would probably do it.

As to the question of what would God say? I figure there have been so many people who have done so many worse things in the name of the church over the years, that I would have to take a number before he would be able to get to me. There are going to be far more eggregious examples that will be worse than me.

No. The only time I can ever justify an abortion is case of rape.

Being homosexual is a rape of humanity.

I did understand the question, Bob, but offered my views on abortion. I don't really care if no one else agrees with me.

The question is unanswerable. You cannot abort a child. You can legally abort a fetus. If you kill a child, that's homicide.

Depends upon how you look at it. Each time I learned I was pregnant, at that moment, it was not a "fetus." It was my "child."

Geezy Pete, understand that there are only nine votes, but six would support abortion? Scary, crazy. How many of you that voted yes will admit that you actually oppose abortion if you knew the child would be straight?

Dunno. It is scary. Consider this thought: one child policy in China. Many fetuses are aborted in China -- female children are unwanted. It's considered a human rights violation by many. I would agree.

A human: 23 chromosomal pairs. Has the same basic chemical composition, regardless of gender, orientation, or race. I see this differently than most though. Simply because one is born gay, has Downs Syndrome, or whatever the cause du jour for abortion may be, does not mean that person cannot enjoy life or contribute in some meaningful way.

Well we don't limit reproduction here. If you spawn 'em, you support 'em or put 'em up for adoption. I have my limits but can't endorse abortion.

The birth rate in China is totally biased in favor of male children, but yet adult males are leaving many areas because they can't find a wife where they live.???????

Legally, it's not a child until it is born. You can call something (or someone) whatever you want, doesn't mean it's right.

I admit it.

Yes, I admit it's Hitleresque to want to kill only the defectives. But so what? What use does a poofter serve me? He can't produce grandkids? He's going to disgust me thinking about what he's doing on a Friday night. And I can't stand the thought of pity from the extended family. An embarassment any way you look at it.

If you're open-minded about this subject, then more power to you. I'm not.

Because it's "law" doesn't mean it's right, either.

Jim Crow laws once existed. Completely wrong and immoral.
