My views are:

It is right of parents to decide what they want.

It is right of parents if they are ready to welcome if the baby has disabilities diagnosed before birth.

So abortion should be a right of parents. 

Personally I don't find it wrong if I am aware that kid has disabilities and I will go to for it. 

Looking forward to read what you think about it.

In my opinion it's the right of a child to bring him/her into the world once you find out about his/her existence. 

Kinda controversial topic, Musky :) lemme predict religious ppl will disagree...the rest (minority which is almost gone) will say ...it is every mom's own personal decissions one can't judge as they don't walk in her shoes...
I am against abortion if it is just a solution of irresponsible sexual behaviour... I am not against abortion if a mother was raped, if she can't manage to take care of disabled baby (no matter if psychologically or economically)...if she is lonely without finance and sb just used her naivity etc. Hard to judge those who went through abortion but just don't think it was easy decission for them...

In case of physical or mental disabilities, yeah, abortion is kinda of solution, because being a parent of such a kid is harsh. Probably it's not easy for the kids too. But... going for abortion only because you've never made an effort to read about contraceptives and their usage, and at some point you got pregnant without actually wanting this...Well, that's unacceptable for me.

     abortion  is risky  for both  the mom and the infant  . It is not an easy decision to make . This topic is so susceptible.  Women  might  lose their lives  due  to excessive bleeding after abortion  . Nevertheless  , such decision  is ought  to be taken  , under certain  conditions  . 1 . If The pregnancy  might lead to the mom death  2. If the pregnancy happened  because of rape .3 . I know that abortion  happen  natural   if the infant  isn't well enough  without  any medical interference  . In this case  they call it miscarriage. 

       When it comes to disable kids , and their right to live  i don't know what to say .

But if both parents  are welling to take care of the baby .why not !!! Why don't they keep it . If both of them are finicially  secured  and have time to take care of a disable baby . For me , I find it difficult to take care of a healthy born baby . It's a big responsibility  . So, how will it be with a disabled baby this work will become more harder for sure  

Muskan,

Of course, It is the right of the parents to welcome the new baby or not. 

Yes, You're right. It is much better to go rather get a baby if the baby has disabilities, otherwise, it hurts life long. But it is hard to digest to its mother. She has so many dreams of her infant. But it is aborted her views if her hubby is against her. This is their life we can't judge, So they have full right to take a decision on their own by considering all.

Thank you.

is your question about abortion generally, or abortion just in case of disabilities diagnose? and your opinion that "parents have right to decide what they want", means in just this case or generally?
Dear Anah, Thanks for sharing your thoughts. I had quite same thinking before but I a few incidents changed my mind. I worked in a nursing care for a while and I met a girl there. Around 20 in her age and she was completely on bed. She doesn't understand anything, her brain was not developed, her bones were growing with some very difficult way that she had pain almost time. I got to see her mother. She came once or twice a week or to take her to hospital to fix bones. I got to know she was single lady at the time (never saw girl's father visiting her) and was working. I always saw on her face kind of sadness or weariness of doing this all alone I never asked how she feels but it was quite obvious. And I felt that day if I will get to know this before getting the kid in the world I will go for abortion. I know both ways are sad. But in my way it will be for a while. For a life time I am not that strong to for such challenge.

Yeah Luci quite controversial and I agree with your views. A watched a documentary about abortion ship. In a european country they banned any kind of abortion and now if the mothers know that the kid has some issue they either have to go abroad if they can't afford then nothing is possible. A doctor came with idea of making a clinic on ship. She then take the mother to out of marine boundaries to perform it. And that made me think why is it in hand of government or people being judge of such thing.  

Thanks for sharing your thoughts :)

A mistake that will go for life. But still for such situations I remember an old saying, 'god gonna find a way for this kid'. As happened with Steve Jobs his biological parents gave him for adoption rather going for abortion and rest is story we know..

Thanks for sharing your opinion Emma. :)

Dear Rosemary, You added a scenario I haven't thought yet, rape cases. Yes that is very sensitive situation and victim should have right to decide. Also, natural one, that reminded me that even in some animals they have infanticide, that is quite cruel but still when mother finds the baby (this is after birth) disabled she kills it. In case of birds they do ovicide if they feel eggs are not healthy ones. So yes even nature has given this right to mothers.

Quite true if parents feels they are capable to handle this responsibility psychologically and financially they can make a life possible even with disabilities. Nick Vujicic is a guy from Melbourne who doesn't have any limbs (no hands and legs) but his parents were capable to give him a healthy growing environment and now he is a motivational speaker and living his life happily with a wife and kid. 

Thanks for sharing your such valuable thoughts and adding a lot more perspectives to look at this.
