    If you had the ability to see the future...

    If you had the ability to see the future and you looked ahead by 5 years and saw that you had a child during that time, but that the child would die from a painful disease at such a young age.. when you returned to your time... would you take precautions to avoid having that child entirely?

    oh wow, what a hard question....its kinda like that saying its better to have loved and lost, than no at all?!  not sure about this case, seeing a child suffer is a horrible thing.  Probably avoid it, wouldn't want to see my child in pain and wouldn't wish it on anyone.

    I would do everything I could to not have a child. I would not like the idea of any child suffering.

    well I've always been telling myself if I could bring back time I will avoid those painful times in my life!
    Losing my own flesh and blood would yet be excruciating and if and only if I had the ability to foresee the future I wouldn't want to have a child whose lifespan is too short sad

    yes. I would never want my child to suffer and it I wouldn't want to go through the pain of losing someone I love so much.

    no, not because I wish for the child to suffer but because that is what was decreed to be. It does not mean I would not do everything in my power to ensure that the child had the best life possible. Futures can change in the blink of an eye and what is in the future always has a possibility of taking a different path.
    It is not my right to make that choice for another life.

    No... Yet good question.. I will take my chances and now prepare myself to better the situation now that i am aware.. The memory of the moments is what counts not the day's.
