Also, the moment we start aborting babies because of tests that suggest a child might be "a bad person", we've truly gone down an even darker path than we're already on. Aborting babies just for possibly being disabled, having birth differences, or having an undesired sex is bad enough as it is, but possibly aborting babies due to some theory that something suggests a baby will be bad is just twisted.
Hopefully being deemed "a good person" is never a requirement for the birth of any child.
Thats for sure but I do not agree with the rest. Why would you let a child which for example has a very short lifetime expectation being born ? It will be suffering for both parents and child.
Well, being born disabled or different doesn't necessarily mean a child will have a significantly shorter life or simply a life of suffering. There are some situations where a birth defect may be found that could lead to little to no life, and in those cases, it's understandable if a parent may want to prevent that suffering. What I was more specifically referencing is the ever-increasing rate of ending pregnancies based on the mere possibility of a child being disabled regardless of evidence that they will not be able to live at all. There's an issue of severity, with a lot of people mainly interpreting a diagnosis as the worst of the worst case scenario that needs to be ended. The rate of abortions for those found to have birth abnormalities such as spina bifida or down syndrome are extremely high(above 90%), despite the fact that a majority of children born with varying degrees of these conditions live relatively long and decent lives. It's a concerning matter of maintaining disabled individuals as undesired in society despite the vast and often unique impacts they regularly have on those around them.
Though, that was just a side note referencing the growing criteria many people use for ending pregnancies. I don't mean to go off on something else about disabled and different individuals. I think the discussion is on nature vs nurture on whether babies can be born bad or good, and it's probably best if we focus on that. :)
