Abortion: Think a bout it.

    Question 1: If you knew a woman who was pregnant, who had 8 kids
    already, three who were deaf, two who were blind, one mentally
    retarded, and she had syphilis, would you recommend that she have an abortion?

    Question 2: It is time to elect a new world leader, and only your vote
    counts. Here are the facts about the three leading candidates.

    Candidate A: Associates with crooked politicians, and consults with astrologists.
    He's had two Mistresses. He also chain smokes and drinks 8 to 10
    martinis a day.

    Candidate B: He was kicked out of office twice, sleeps until noon, used
    opium in college and drinks a quart of whiskey every evening.

    Candidate C: He is a decorated war hero. He's a vegetarian, doesn't smoke, drinks an
    occasional beer and never cheated on his wife.


    Candidate A is Franklin D. Roosevelt.
    Candidate B is Winston Churchill.
    Candidate C is Adolph Hitler.

    And, by the way, the answer to the abortion question: If you said yes,
    you just killed Beethoven.

      In the 1700's the more kids you had, the more help to bring income around the house. In the 2000's the more kids you have, the more you live off the government (our tax money). Can't compare. Sorry.

    well put you never know who that life will become.  As for the candidates, well, they are all crooked, and a dictator such as hitler didn't have time to cheat on his wife he probably thought he was too good for anyone else, and of course he was pretty busy trying to conquer the world.

    Also--had his mom had an abortion, there never would have been an Adolf Hitler.
    6 million + lives saved.
    Or maybe Stalin's mom should have aborted....30 Million + lives saved.

    There's always 2 sides to everything.

    Life is so full of chances - good,not so good and very bad.
    I wish every time I make a choice somebody could tell me if it is the right one! That would be lovely!

    I'm more or less pro-life, but that Beethoven thing is goofy; it's not a real argument against abortion.  Just because some abortions prevent the birth of children who would benefit society does not give the government the right to forbid women from obtaining an abortion.  That comes down to why it's wrong to destroy human life, and at what point a fetus takes on the characteristics that make it wrong. 

    Plus, like some have already noted, some abortions prevent a benefit to society (by destroying potential geniuses), many likely prevent a detriment to society, by preventing the birth of future criminals or those who would be a drain on society's resources.  So like I said, I probably agree with your position, but this is not a logically sound argument.
