It's only one comment in prolife
, but it contains so much stupid that I thought it definitely deserved its own post here at stupid_free
In response to an article
posted about the Irish teen seeking an abortion because her fetus was diagnosed as anencephalic, jazmine601
to say:"I had thought I read that anencephalic babies could be organ donors if they are carried to term. In fact, I thought I read that in this community. It's a shame the mother isn't given that information, she might be persuaded to save the lives of many other infants."
This is not only stupid, but cruel and sad, for several reasons. Some of those being:
A. Suggesting that a 17-year-old
carry to term (approximately 6 more months
in this case) a pregnancy that she knows will result in the birth of a baby that will most definitely be born dead or live (at most) for only hours/days, SO THEN she can just go ahead and turn over her child for organ donation. How compassionate, no?
B. A "pro-lifer" not being okay with abortion due to severe fetal deformity, but being A-OKAY with what can really only be described as organ harvesting.
C. Anencephalic newborns aren't even considered to be suitable organ donors.
