This has more to do with the needs of the family and the woman who will be carrying the fetus inside her body. Whether the baby may potentially live a happy life is irrelevant by the simple basis that it has no human will. To put it another way, 10 little Zephy spawns may have a grand old time living, but that potential does not morally inform me as to whether or not I ought to have 10 little Zephy spawns. If I choose not to do so, the consequences influence only my self and my family as there is no other being (i.e 'the baby') to account for.

This is irrational. You can't desire something when you have no will to do so.
I'd much prefer being alive to being dust, especially since I'm very skeptical about an afterlife.
