    Of course not. Though it's my overall opinion of killing unborn children.

    I guess it's only okay to discriminate against them AFTER they're born.

    I'm pretty shocked that people think it's ok to abort someone just because they may turn out to be gay.

    I wouldn't have thought it possible to see 22 people agreeing on genocide for gays.

    If people honestly think abortion to be an elective sort of process, then they can't really say it's not OK. If you can choose to get rid of your baby for whatever reason (which is the attitude of many "pro-choice" people), then the baby being gay is the same as not having money or not wanting the responsibility or anything like that. I would find it quite contradictory in fact if the majority of pro-choice people came out against aborting gay babies.

    The same could be said about those who are against abortion. If you are against abortion then the baby hypothetically having a gay gene is not a sufficient reason to kill a baby.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Indeed true. And why I said it's not ok to abort a baby just because it could be gay.

    Yes.

    I may disagree with aborting a child for that reason, and I may look down upon the parents for doing it, but I support their right to abort for that reason or any other (or no reason at all for that matter).

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.
    How can you tell if a baby is gay?

    you can't equate the rule of law with my personal morality. for me, no, that would not be a sufficient reason. but however distasteful to me, it would be legal.
