If i knew my baby was to be born messed up, id want my wife to have an abortion. With all the bad crap life deals normal kids. Why do this to a child that is messed up? Why make em live a life of suffering and hardship?
Plus originally in olden days the baby wouldnt have survived. It was natures way of weeding out the weak. Survival of the fittest. Not we want all forms of human life to survive. Do you know what that does to the gene pool?
If we didn't know and had a retarded kid, Id put it up for adoption. Raising a mentally challenged kid is a nightmare. I would go insane. I wouldn't have the patience. Raising a mentally challenged kid takes a special kind of person, and that ain't me.
