This is nothing short of sickening. A couple is pregnant with their first child and are now leaving it up to a vote whether to abort their child or not. They’ve established a website called BirthorNot.
While they say the final tally is not binding they will take it into consideration. The two post images of their baby’s ultrasound but still are threatening to abort.
I thought about putting the link in but I really don’t want to send traffic their way because that’s really what they’re after. If we give publicity to these kinds of things I think we’ll only get more of them.
Weasel Zippers has the story:
Pete and Alisha Arnold have created a website called Birthornot.com, where they’ve been posting updates on Alisha’s pregnancy since September. But this site is unlike any other expectant parent’s blog: this site has a poll that asks viewers, “Should we give birth or have an abortion?”
In an interview with Gawker.com, the Arnolds said they were unsure if they wanted to be parents. After two miscarriages, they said they launched the site to put the choice in voter’s hands.
“Voting is such an important part of who we are as a people,” Pete Arnold told the website. “Here’s a chance where people can be heard about whether they are pro-choice or whether they are pro-life, and it makes a difference in the real world.”
The Arnolds said in the interview that they are taking the poll seriously and that it was not a prank, but the final vote isn’t binding. The poll closes on December 7, two days before the end of the 20th week of pregnancy and their last chance to get an abortion.
So you know how pro-aborts are always saying that women don’t take abortion lightly, well this kind of puts the lie to that.
The ironic part is that the expectant mother running the site is complaining that another website is trying to skew the poll. Can you imagine? A website trying to skew a poll? Is nothing sacred?
