    Sorry for the necromancy-- I haven't looked at this thread for awhile.

    As someone who intends to become a parent at some point, I want my hypothetical children to have the best possible life as I understand it. That means, among other things, that I want them to have best possible genetic traits so that they do not begin their lives already at a disadvantage. I will use any means at my disposal to ensure this.

    Hopefully, by the time that my children will reach puberty, homosexuality will not carry the stigma that it does today. However, even without the vast social disapproval-- which I do not think will lessen considerably by then-- homosexuals are still disadvantaged by a smaller pool of sexual partners and considerable inconvenience related to reproduction.

    If there were something I could do-- without harming them-- to ensure that my children did not bear such a burden, of course I would do it. Since they are not my children until they are born and named-- and I am named their father-- then aborting fetuses with this trait accomplishes that goal.

    I wish the technology were better. There are traits I am far more concerned about than homosexuality that I would like to protect my children from.

    Of course, I do not think homosexuality is genetic. My suspicion is that it is caused by prenatal hormone changes-- and I do not know if it even could be detected prenatally.

    joke Re: Is it OK to abort a gay baby?

    I have a hard time understanding why anyone would vote to abort a gay baby. They will surely join me in hell. I have it on good sources that even though, I am a christian, I will go to hell for not supporting Bush the Dum Dum.

    How do you tell a gay baby?

    1. They are born with blue tattoo around their belly button.

    2. They have little green horns, on their heads.

    3. They have green blood

    4. Right wing fake christians think it would be fun kill a baby?

    5. that Baby, cried funny, kill it,,,, it must be gay.

    what is the answer? Statistically gay parents very seldom produce gay babies, naturally or when they adopt, and this has been studied a lot privately and by the fed.

    Well, it's not exactly a nuanced, scientific poll. Half of those answering yes could simply be saying that it's okay to abort a fetus, irrelevant of the fact that it's gay or not. The other half could might have answered yes because they're virulently homophobic. There's no way to know for sure unless everybody who answered yes stepped up to explain their positions.

    The options of the poll are yes and no. People could pick either option for different reasons.

    It that sufficient reason to abort the unborn baby?



    Someone please add a Yes/No poll
    Yes - it's none of my business why a couple or a single mother wants to abort their child.

    No men are anywhere, and Im allowed to go in, because Im the owner of the pageant and therefore Im inspecting it, Trump said... Is everyone OK? You know, theyre standing there with no clothes. Is everybody OK? And you see these incredible looking women, and so I sort of get away with things like that.

    No, aborting a gay baby is still murdering a child.

    Besides, if a genetic marker for homosexuality is discovered, then the road is open for a cure.
