Social Tip #41 - Abortion

A friend asked me, "Myka, if you ever became pregnant, and you knew the baby was going to be handicapped, would you get an abortion?"

I had to think about it for a second. I was like, "Ummm, I’m pretty sure I’d get an abortion either way."

A baby doesn’t need to be retarded for me to not want it. In fact, if I were to keep any baby, it would be a retarded one. All of that unconditional love. And it would be much easier to help them with their homework.

I feel the same way about having a baby as I do about having a microwave. I don’t want to bring anything into my house that could kill me in the future.

So, no micro-waves, no micro-humans (micro-brain or no micro-brain).

myq: yes. no microwaves. no microbrains. no microphones.

skizz: that's a good point. of course, odds are the only place im taking that kid is to a special school where it is all handicapped parking.
