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.
You're not accounting for the ten "spawns". You're snuffing out those ten lives. Ten people who would have lived and laughed and loved had you not taken action against them.
Just because they cannot vocalize or be consciously aware of it doesn't mean they cant desire life. Plants don't have brains, yet they do everything in their power to stay alive, as all living things do...except for terrorists...
