When I woke up this morning, I read an article about the trend of women tweeting #ihadanabortion. Now at the end of the day, I was just alerted about a Minnesota couple that is using an online poll on their blog to determine whether or not to abort their child.
While many are hoping the site is a sick joke, the couple maintains that they truly want the public to have a vote that makes a difference in the world.
How in the world can a child's life be reduced to an online poll, a click of the mouse, an anonymous decision by someone who will forget about the child the moment the screen closes? And how in the world can the parents post their ultrasound videos and pictures every couple of weeks, naming their baby "Wiggles" and yet be so cold and calculating as to value their baby as nothing more than fodder for an Internet poll?
