I think a mother that feels the need to terminate due to gender, much less to certain chromosomal differences that may make it harder to raise a special needs child, probably wasn't prepared to be a mother to begin with. It kills me to think there is a special disposal service out there for babies with special needs...
It is absolutely ridiculous for you to lump these groups of people together. My cousin delivered a baby with T18, she lived for less than a minute. No, that's not something that i want to experience. Get off of your high horse, thankfully we all have the option to make those heart wrenching decisions for ourselves.
Agree. I think we're all aware that life isn't perfect, and when a woman makes the decision to get pregnant, it's with the knowledge that there's always a chance something may go wrong. But being pregnant doesn't mean we give up our right to continue making decisions for ourselves, especially such utterly personal, emotional, and completely life-changing decisions.
What really irks me is that society wants to pass judgment on women who would choose not to have a special needs child, when public support (resources, assistance, and attitudes in general) is so sh*tty for special needs children, their families, and the adults they grow up to become.
