    Cause it's too damn happy.

    It must be a sad baby to fit in with our culture - so we can then infuse it with drugs which simulate or temporarily spike happiness.

    If someone killed me because I was white - would that make their act of murder an act of genocide? No - not unless they were systematicaly killing many white people with the intent of quelling the population.
    True. I think Wind was just going a step further and applying it as a "practice" which does seem to be what the OP was implying.

    That's the same exact view I have regarding aborting fetuses that were gay.

    Should it be legal? Sure.

    Is it despicable? Defnitely
    If it becomes a government policy to retrict abortions except in cases when the fetus is gay or disabled or female then that would move the abortions into a gencide category.

    We don't have that kind of policy now, but if the anti-abortion crowd had a choice we would.

    Some of the same folks that are anti-abortion are homophobic too.

    Funny - I'm pro abortion, and pro gay-rights LOL!

    It makes sense, somehow. *giggle*

    Re: Is it OK to abort a gay baby?

    I am still shocked at the high number of people who think it is ok to abort gay children.

    25 and the opposition is only 31.

    A lot of us 'pro' are purely so because of general abortion views, not case by case views.

    I am just shocked that this thread will be having it's third birthday later this month. Time does fly.

    You should learn to read a bit more carefully.

    LOL

    I bumped it in a search for something completely unrelated - I couldn't resist! all appologies, nirvana style.

    The question in the poll is not about what is legal, it is about what is 'ok'.
