There are too many different factors, such as how far developed the fetus is, the severity of the disorder, the chance of the child getting it, and the current state of medical research on the disorder.

As for the issue of abortion, it's not really an issue of life (we kill thousands of microbes and plants a day, so any claim that life is sacred is ludicrous), or murder (as murder is the illegal killing of a human being, and foetuses don't even meet the requirements of being a living human being [humans are considered dead when their brain no longer functions, so a foetus that doesn't even have a brain can no more be considered an independent living human, that a tumour]).

The United Thingys and The Dark Norse

Abort all fetuses. Abort the human race. Abort abort. I repeat the mission has failed, we are pulling out.

The Dark Norse, Nein Land, and Schrute Beets

Seriously??? One of those aborted fetuses could have been you.

well, as explained by the butterfly effect, any action can alter the world enough so that children that were going to be born, aren't, and children that weren't going to be born, are.
So one could argue that any change you are in favour of, if it had been implemented long enough before your conception, would have caused many foetuses to not exist in the first place, and one of those foetuses could have been you!

The Dark Norse

The Forerunner Nation of Illand wrote:I am not saying that I hate people that say abortion is OK if the baby would be born only to suffer, but abortion is wrong in my eyes. I feel like it is murder.

How do you murder something that was never alive?

Many Worlds Theory anyone? - https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Many-worlds_interpretation

There IS a time and a place for everyone and everything; it is possible that somewhere "out there" I'm a huge purple elephant-kangaroo hybrid bouncing along on an orange jelly planet, blissed out on some hallucinogenic meal that I ate after, "going and fück¡ng myself", and I'm having a bad trip that I'm a human being wasting my time chatting sh¡t on some online political game...

The Whatchamacallit of The United Thingys wrote:Abort all fetuses. Abort the human race. Abort abort. I repeat the mission has failed, we are pulling out.

But the problem is abortion is a result of not pulling out

Nein Land

But that could easily be avoided by not putting out to begin with :P

The Frozen Helheimr of The Dark Norse wrote:Many Worlds Theory anyone?

No. Parallel universes are just cheap science fiction, and has no relevance to real science!

I'm curious, who here would be upset if the person they were dating or married to constantly put playing a game above their relationship with you?

The Grand Duchy of Enwick wrote:You are both wrong. The truth is that when two individuals with the same exact experience and abilities are candidates for a job, the man will most likely get the job. Most employers still feel that a woman is only in the workforce until she becomes pregnant and leaves to have her children. Whether blatant or covert, this is still the reality of the workplace.

You've not argued the point either of us made so you can't claim either of us are wrong when you havn't proven our points wrong. You've now gone from wages earned per hour to hiring workers. What you have now just tried to argue is that hiring practices for businesses are sexist. In the event a business has 2 equally qualified people going for 1 position, with one male and one female candidate, a business hiring the man over the woman makes sense as the woman will cost the business money when she leaves to have her child because they still need to pay for maternity leave and hire someone to replace her during her time off which means paying extra wages. As a businesses main objective is generate as much profit as possible, having the least amount of cost possible, it makes perfect business sense to hire the person who wont cost the business an additional pay check for a period of time. Whether or not you think this is right logic doesn't care and it is the logical way for a business to act. Fortunately for society this is not a policy businesses have.
Also, to the point of "The truth is that when two individuals with the same exact experience and abilities are candidates for a job, the man will most likely get the job", citation needed because believe it or not, according to the HESA in the UK, women who graduate are more likely to find jobs than males after leaving college.

To the abortion conversation I believe it should be allowed however the person having the abortion should pay for it because getting pregnant is very easily prevented in most cases(Rape or faulty contraseptives could cause pregnancy) and the medical staff helping with the abortion could be doing something more useful with their time.
