Don’t Kill Terminally Ill People
For parents, it’s heartbreaking to learn that their preborn child has a life-threatening health problem. Sometimes, these parents are tempted to seek out an abortion to ease their own heartbreak. Ethics aside, we think this is not a wise choice. Losing a loved one is always hard, but celebrating the loved one’s life during their last days makes the process easier.
Other times, when the fetus has a health problem, parents are tempted to seek out an abortion for the child’s own sake. If your conversation partner is focused on that idea, it might be helpful to ask about a scenario where an infant or toddler is diagnosed with a terminal illness.
