Deformed offspring
Posted 1/31/08 , edited 4/21/08
I wouldn't throw my kid away b/c of physical or mental disabilities but I know this subject has become a hot debate as of late in the medical community. Parents these days will actually sue physicians for not performing tests that will help them determine whether or not they will keep their child due to physical and mental disabilities.

If i had a deformed child i would have it killed. I would refuse to acknowledge it as my own and have it put to sleep like an animal.

Can i be honnest a second?

I would not keep the baby and that for severals reasons

1) the one and most important reason is for my OTHERS kids. Handicapped childs mean ALOT of work, lot of time, alot of money, alot of missed hockey practices and alot of missed dance class presentation. I'm not willing to downgrade my others childrens chance in life just because i have a little guilt trip with mysefl. To have a familly is alot of work and its already hard engouh to add more diffilculty to it.

Many struggle with the extra costs of raising disabled children, which is calculated to be three times higher than other children, and they face barriers to working, said the Every Disabled Child Matters (EDCM) campaign, an alliance of Mencap, Contact a Family, Council for Disabled Children and the Special Educational Consortium.
More than nine in 10 (93%) families reported some form of financial difficulty, with only 6% saying they were comfortably off.


2) not to mention that with a disabled children, its hard to have a work that can keep up with the medical schedule, the often day off because your kids need you and the crazy stress you permenantly living.

3) the kids not gonna nessescary a awesome life. I'll hate myself to have my kid suffers because of a decision I made. Actually i would hate to have childrens suffers period. I rather have them never feel pain. I'll more than willing to end their life, like this father in saskatchewan who killed his highly sick/hadicapped daughter and went to prison for it.

Robet Latimer case:

Tracy's parents faced a dilemma: Parents are expected to protect their children from harm. They were facing an imminent fourth operation which would put their daughter in further medically untreatable pain. Doctors expected more operations would be required as her body continued to degenerate.

Our society is able to emotionally and conceptually handle physical disabilities but unable to deal with physical agony. We readily admit that it is illegal to torture another human being but when it is the individual's own body that is the source of pain, we are in a dilemma. When we are confronted with medically untreatable agony, we are silent, we try to ignore it or try to divert attention to a lesser medical problem.


Go ahead, call me heartless. I dont care. I'm not here to jeopardise my childrens life, my familly's life, my life and all and everything that can make a difference in this world just because i have issues with the possible guilt i could have. Its better that way. End of the story.

I would kill the child.

I admit, if I let it live I would probably come to love it regardless of how he or she looked or acted. But I couldn't bear to let the child live that way for the rest of his life. He/she wouldn't be able to survive on his own, it would always need someone to help it out. Regardless how much effort it puts into acting normal when it gets older., it would still be disdained by other people.

My parents are bringing me up the way of 'life is for the strongest', and I'm probably going to join the military once I leave high school. I would undoubtedly love the child, but I couldn't look at it with respect that I might have for another child who is normal.

Haha, that was very interesting between n_n303 and coreyb49127.

I'd like to say I'll love my child no matter what, but I don't know if I could actually do that...

Sometimes the deformity will show up on the ultrasound or sonogram, but other times it happens during birth

Right now I will say that I won't give up my child for anything, even though he's going to be deformed. But then again, if ever that time ever comes, I'm not sure if I'd be able to say the same. But I've a family friend who is born with multiple disabilities - all his limbs were deformed, his backbone is humped and he is autistic. His doctor said that he won't live past his 2nd birthday. But today he is alive and well for the past 24 years. It was really a miracle from God. And I am so glad his mother didn't give up on him. I think she's an amazing woman and I really respect her.

I think..... the technology now is possible to ammend some of those deformation with money.... but I think.... it is still good to be glad that your child isn't one of them?

I really feel sorry for these kids... they never wanted to be like this in the first place... and I bet neither did their parents want it... It's really a sad case, but it's better to just accept what's already there and continue to support these children because if the parents themselves don't love them.. then who will...? how will they even have the courage and strength to face life if they've been rejected in the first place, by the very people who gave birth to them?

that would be so sad if you'll have an offspring like that.. ... it's a problem about genetics too... but i think you shouldnt judge them for they are humans too like us...
