Great article Erin, I think you read my mind because I just wanted to ask your opinion on that subject. I cannot agree however, that an abortion can be a loving choice, I believe they are all based on fear. Fear of taking responsibility, fear of future, etc. I was pregnant 4 times and because of my age I knew there could potentially be some problems with the developing baby. Every time, I was in fear that a baby would turn out to have Down's or something. I miscarried all 4 times, so I never had to face a potentially difficult decision, but I thought about it a lot. If a woman decides to abort a malformed fetus isn't it because she fears her future with that baby? All the questions and looks from family and friends, all the things that the baby will never do, all the work and sacrifice, etc etc. I don't see how killing a malformed fetus even with a life threatening illness can be a loving choice. What if you have a healthy baby and then it gets a life threatening disease when it is 1 year old? Would we consider killing them too? And what about all the life lessons the ill child was supposed to teach us?
