    It's because the parents have a right to abort - and no one has the right to tell them why they can and why they can't abort. It's not a 'gay' issue for me - it's that their reasons are none of my business.

    Yeah, that's the excuse most people give for wanting to ban abortion.

    It's probably not really genetic is it?
    Actually, if it were recessive two hetero parents who carry the recessive gene could produce a gay offspring if they both passed on the recessive gene.

    Think of G as the recessive gay gene and H as the dominant straight gene.


    Parent one is HG, parent two is HG

    They each pass on either H or G to their offspring. That means one out of four would be HH or GG and 1 out of two would be HG.

    That's assuming the trait was dictated by a single gene. Many traits are dictated by multiple genes. Such as Eye color.

    The parents only need to be carriers. They don't have to display the trait when it is recessive.

    Oh please. It's not genocide - don't even try that dramatic.

    If you're going to abort gay babies, then its genocide of gays. It's a final solution. Too bad. I can think of plenty of prospective childless parents who would be happy to raise a gay child or any child.

    So you think abortion is murder/killing a human?

    It's killing a human life but I don't really think it classifies as murder because murder is the unjustified killing of a person.

    A couple aborting ONE baby is NOT genocide - it is an abortion. A single, selective abortion for their personal reasons.
    Genocide is the extermination of a large number of peoples from a race/gender/culture (etc etc).

    If it's a parent's personal, private CHOICE then it is in no way genocide.

    Maybe biased or homophobic - maybe even moraly wrong in this particular case - but it's definitely not genocide.
