Again, that assumes that the baby is not wanted.
For anybody who has ever had a child, there is a HUGE difference between finding out you are about to have a child and actually holding your child in your arms the day he/she is born. It's a pretty amazing shift.
But understandably, that doesn't ALWAYS happen, it is possible that the parents change their mind once the baby arrives.
On the flip side, even IF they still don't want the child, it doesn't mean that nobody, nowhere will ever want it. Life is pretty amazing, and having a chance at living, complete with all the complexities of it is a pretty amazing experience. And it's all a matter of CHOICE.
I think that NOT being born is limiting choice moreso than actually being born.
