Disgusting savages, dangling the life of an innocent child like this. If this was a just world the child would be taken from these evil people at birth, given to loving parents, and then both of these animals would be sterilized.

A couple of disgusting, self-promoting freaks, regardless of their motives.

My bet is that this is just a publicity stunt meant to inflame opinion. I can’t believe that someone would be so shallow as to decide to abort or keep a baby based on a poll. If they are pro-abortion and don’t want the kid, they will abort him or her. If they want to keep the child, they won’t abort him or her. Its as simple as that.

How does anyone know that’s really her baby, or that she’s even pregnant?

Ahhhhh......those who declare they have no moral foundation, and only want to do that which is most popular.....it makes no difference to them. “Which way is the wind blowing?”

Now that’s what I call “character”.

NOT!

Let’s put up a site with a picture of a neighbor and ask for a vote on whether to murder him or not.

Same thing to me.

Reminds me of an old joke, there, stuart -

A [insert preferred target ethnicity here] girl goes to her mom and says “mom, I’m pregnant” and the mother replies “are you sure it’s yours?”

I have a feeling these folks are pro-life and will carry the baby to term regardless of the vote. If you look at their website, there are numerous ultrasound images, with descriptions of what traits and abilities are forming at these stages.

I think they are actually inviting people to really examine their consciences in light of these ultrasounds. If that’s the case, this is a great idea.

The “convenience interrupted” excuse sounds almost too cliche for a reason to abort, even though it’s often used in reality. Too callous by-half in this circumstance, if you know what I mean. If someone is that callous, they won’t let someone else’s vote decide for them to keep it, they would just have the abortion.

And planned barrenhood intentionally uses outdated ultrasound machines so that the clear image of a living human being isn’t apparent to the mother.

I agree they will have this baby. Because the story said this.......

The couple’s first planned pregnancy ended in miscarriage in January at 16 weeks and the second planned pregnancy ended in miscarriage in April at five weeks.

I feel sorry for this kid. You know other kids are going to make fun of them over this when they grow up. Kids are just that cruel.

If this poor kid ever makes it to the age of understanding, he/she’s going to be one sick puppy after realizing what these monsters did.

Hey, screw your logic and common sense.

It’s on the Interwebz... how could it possibly not be taken at face value!?!

“wOOt. I am pretty excited about it. We have had difficulty in the past with three unsuccessful pregnancies and I am hoping this time will be better. What worries me though is that two of them had issues with genetics, the fetus didn’t develop properly, heart beat was slow, centerline disorder kind of stuff,: he wrote. “But I am excited at the prospects of being a father. I’ll cross my fingers and toes that this one goes off without a hitch. Alisha’s uncertainties however are valid.”

What manner of evil things could possibly do this? There’s nothing human in the hearts of these monsters.

You’re right, it could be a great pro-life experiment, educating people without them even knowing it.

They intend to do what the vote says. Does anyone STILL think that liberalism isn’t a mental disorder?

The Arnolds have had two recent pregnancies end in miscarriage, and an unplanned pregnancy ended when Alisha was 20 and using the birth control pill.
Anyone who is pro-life would never pull a stunt like this. Hopefully this little baby isn't has sick as its parents. The above quote says an unplanned pregnancy ended when Alisha was 20 ... evidently she already has had an abortion?

When someone kills one child and does not receive post-abortion emotional help in that regard or asks forgiveness, they are ripe for more killing, but this is beyond sick ... I notice both she and her husband are obese. Sloth, selfishness, and/or gluttony? Or is it a thyroid issue?

They should put up a choice on their "poll" that says, birth the baby, give it away, then make an appointment with Rachel's Vineyard/priest (or have a heart specialist check to see if we still have ours) ...

Sounds like he wants the baby but she's unsure and, under the law, termination is all up to the whim of the gestating party.

The story makes my skin crawl.
