I`m pro choice, but this is disgusting. They`re not 16 yr olds. Have the baby and learn how to be responsible. This really sickens me.

I say the couple should go ahead and have the kid, then instantly kill themselves so the kid actually has a chance at a happy life.

"Also, the abort option`s at 52%. Which I think is frickin wonderful. If you`re going to question whether you want to have kids or not at all, the answer should always be `NO.`"

I agree with the second half of that statement, but there are other options besides abortion. I`m not pro-life or pro-choice. I just have two nieces, a sister, and two cousins who were adopted.

Having a child is NOT something you should be unsure about until it happens, then carry out. It`s something that if you are unsure about, you should prevent at all costs.

"Guess what, folks? The majority of our parents weren`t sure if they were ready when they found out they were pregnant. Get. The DRAT. Over it!"

If we, as humans, have the rights to decide if we want larger breasts, change our physical sex, love whom we want, etc. Then we also have the right to decide if and WHEN we want children, regardless how much sex we have.

To say that we should negate pleasure over "the natural order of things" or "biological circumstance" is also the same logic that would allow us to let mentally retarded children/adults die.

We don`t obviously do that. But it`s the natural order: the strong survive, etc. Sometimes the natural order`s a bitch and we take it on our own hands to change it so that we may live how we want. Biological imperative and natural selection be damned! We live in a world where we can do all sorts of poo medically.

Well, this is IAB and there`s a (stupid and pointless) word filter, so I`ll have to find an "alternative spelling" for my response to this item:

BULL! SH|T!!! There. How`s that?

Go read the first two posts on their blog. They want the baby and they`re not really thinking about aborting. This will turn out to be a (pretty crappy) joke or experiment or whatever. Maybe just an over-the-top fame-whoring publicity stunt, my money`s on that one.

Untwist your panties, everybody.

I do have to say, though...I`m really tempted to go vote "Abort" because there`s a good chance that kid will turn out to be just as stupid as his parents!

rainbowfarts, I`ll agree with you on that.

But seriously, that is disgusting. I`m pro-choice/pro abortion, but really? They`re MARRIED. Guess what happens when you`re not careful when you have sex, even in marriage? You get pregnant. If they didn`t want kids yet, they should`ve been more careful in their marital bliss. The human race is utterly hopeless if THIS is the what happens with abortion being legal. It`s NOT birth control, and it sure as hell shouldn`t be used for a married couple that isn`t sure if they`re ready. Guess what, folks? The majority of our parents weren`t sure if they were ready when they found out they were pregnant. Get. The DRAT. Over it!

Okay...

What a couple of asshat wearing, dispsh*t monkey f*ckers...to have to go online to "poll" people to make such an important and personal decision.


I hope if they decide to have the child they allow a smarter less self absorbed couple to adopt it.


Jeez, what a pair of absolute losers.

I mean....wtf are they going to do with this website and poll?

Are they going to take junior and show this to him and tell him, "you almost were aborted but then there was a last minute surge and you squeaked out of Mommy by 2%"?

And what if you abort the fetus? Are you going to put a picture of that website in your wallet to think about your child that wasn`t meant to be?


Also, isn`t there always a margin for error in polls? like +/- 5% or something....what if its tied and isn`t conjoined twins (in which case you could kill one and let the other win on a coin flip)

I say abort, not because of their lame excuse of "I don`t want to change the status quo" but I fear for their son if he had to grow up with these losers that treat the life of their possible son as some flippant thing. If they did have it are they going to have an online poll to decide whether to feed it or not too? Just like K3vin said sterilize the bastards, they should never be parents.

Man this bring s out the right-wing fanatics, like bees to honey. Ever consider that `pro-life` is `anti-choice`. Those that advocate birth, should step out and adopt those kids that languish away in orphanages. Put your damn wallet where your mouth is.

I say koodoos to this couple, for they got `balls` to put this to the public opinion. And another thing, it`s not alive till breaths on its own; its just another part of the `mother`, till the mother`s body deems other wise.

I`ve always been pro-choice, but THIS is NOT the reason why. They are not fit to be parents though. Give the baby up for adoption. Brand new white babies are in high demand.

If it`s an accident and they decide they don`t really want it, then have the abortion. It should be as simple as that.

They are leaving it a bit late though (the article says that by 20 weeks it can feel pain, and at tht size they have to suck it out with machinery).

Just stepping outside of this for a minute...

what`s nice is that maybe for a second these trolls united a giant group of pro/anti-choice people under the banner of "at least take a second to think about it" and "I`m (position), but regardless, this is shameful."

I almost went to bed so... angry. For once in 5 years, IAB has RESTORED my sanity.

Even though it`s bullpoo, I`m kind of pissed there was no option for adopting out.

The guy who made the website is a pro-life Republican who is trying to make a point. And they registered the domain name before the "child" was supposedly conceived.

In a rare moment of being serious . . .

Here at IAB I have seen elephants pee. I`ve seen reporters gunned down. I`ve seen people beaten. But this is the nastiest. This is the lowest, most discusting thing I`ve seen.

Pro or Con on abortion, doesn`t matter. To make a whimsical joke over something that is literally a question of "life or death". . . [shakes head] Takcy.

I hope they have it `cause I`m WAY anti-abortion.
I hope they give it up to a nice pair of adults to raise.
But they should not be allowed to raise a child.

I have given birth to a 17 week old baby due to an incompetent cervix (cervix not strong enough to hold pregnancy without medical intervention). You don`t know you have it until its too late.

Anyway, my baby took a breath and tried to survive, the lungs and other organs just weren`t developed enough. She had eyes, ears, nose, fingers, toes, etc. Besides the head, she looked like a miniature baby.

Surprisingly, I am pro choice but not this late in the pregnancy. A baby has about a 50% chance of survival at 24 weeks (only a month difference). If she wanted an abortion she should have gotten one during her first trimester.

If she doesn`t want her baby then I am sure there are plenty of people who would want it.

... I`m so much less depressed now that it`s 80% in favor of keeping it. Evidently once the real world outside the internet got wind of it things have swung back.

Now, just for little details like this kid knowing the parents didn`t want him? That really sucks...

I don`t believe this at all. It definitely seems like something concocted for media attention or in order to make some kind of point. I would not be surprised at all if the ultrasounds and pictures were fraud. (like from somebody else or old). Sketchy

Abort it. If they are that stupid, then they don`t deserve to reproduce. Consider how f*cked up the kid`s childhood would be. Also, it`s name would be Wiggles, put the damn thing out of its misery.

I think that this their attempt at satirising the "heartlessness" of pro-choicers.

If it is in fact real, then I think that this couple should do whatever they feel is right for them, although I it does not seem like they want a child at all.

No, not really. 4chan got involved. There is more pain in giving birth (spending money on it, etc) than in abortion. Seriously. That`s why there are so many votes for it.

this is sick. im all for people having a choice on abortion when in tough situations, but these two are doing it for the HELL OF IT! Honestly, the baby is perfectly healthy, the mother looks healthy enough to give birth with no problems, it wasnt a case of rape, they just "arent sure if they want to be parents". There is something called adoption for a reason. Even if they arent financially stable enough (which it looks like they are) or emotionally ready they can always have the baby and try to find it a loving family.
but an online poll? thats just frustrating. its people like these that give the pro-life people something to rant about. honestly, the one thing that i hate about pro-choice is dumb people that are fully able to have a child and take care of it take advantage of it becuase they were too stupid to use a condom. two healthy able adults should notbe leaving the fate of their child in the hands of strangers.

Article is outdated. Most votes at present are for the couple to have the baby. I am of the fervent opinion those two should not raise a child ever, but giving it up for adoption and/or sterilization are not options up for vote.
