MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. A Minneapolis couple is preparing for the arrival of their first child. That is, unless internet voters decide they should have an abortion instead.
Pete and Alisha Arnold have created a website called Birthornot.com, where theyve been posting updates on Alishas pregnancy since September. But this site is unlike any other expectant parents blog: this site has a poll that asks viewers, Should we give birth or have an abortion?

There are some other sites that say this couple is actually pro-life and this was a stunt to make some kind of point.
Not entirely sure what that point is.
Been there done that.
How about we all vote to just have Alisha’s tubes tied?
I don’t know either, but the fact that FREEPERS who read this thread will have the knowledge that this is some kind of prank or stunt, makes it worth having here to discuss.
The voting so far is about 80-20 to have the baby and 6% of the commenters have offered to adopt if the vote went to abort. I don’t think these people have any intention to abort. It’s an experiment or “stunt”, if you will. Perhaps one of them is doing a research paper.
This always got me about "pro-choice" people. Why is it a "difficult decision" about whether to abort the baby or not?
Either it's a human baby or it's not. If it's not, there isn't any "difficulty" in killing it for the convenience of the woman.
If it is a human baby then killing it is murder.
There is no such thing as the position they try to take-
"I personally wouldn't do it but wouldn't want to impose that view on someone else."
Well, I personally wouldn't kill another human who was inconveniencing me (that guy ahead of me with all the coupons), but I wouldn't impose that moral position on others.
Doesn't make sense at all, does it?
I can’t even imagine doing something like this. And yes I sure hope it’s all a hoax. The very idea of making life so cheap that you would gamble on your own flesh and blood’s life. It’s truly sickening.
