I am not questioning a persons right to abort. I am questioning people who decide to abort because of a minor physical defect, people who will settle
for nothing less than perfect (whatever that may be).
These are people who will abort for the above stated reason and go about conceiving once again to try for that perfect child.
Should a prospective life be viewed as "unwanted" purely because it is not going to live up to an arbitrarily determined standard?
Society doesn't have the authority to dictate to an individual whether or not they can have their own child.
I agree completely, although, perhaps it is society and it's perceived standards of beauty that could be seen as being largely responsible for people
choosing to abort less than perfect children.
The pressure to be attracive is intense and some parents although claiming to want the best for their children, live vicariously through them to feel
better about themselves.
