This is a ludicrous assumption. not all adopted kids will make similar contributions.

The choice some women make may preempt such a person but it may still be the right choice for those women and men involved. It just isn't for the rest of the world to make an assumption they know whats best for them.

The same argument could be made for people put to death... they may have made a better contribution if given the chance..... do you want to take that chance?

We live in a world where largely people don't live up to their potential. Perhaps your efforts would be best to focus on the living, like the children that don't get adopted and helping them reach their potential.

Isn't there a list somewhere that shows how many people would have been better off aborted?

Yes lets kill all the undesirables. The Fuhrer would be proud of you.

When are men ever envoled in a decision like this, unless the women wants to hit the man up for child support and keeps the baby.

That is a terrible argument.

The lesson or moral here is Jobs was GIVEN A CHANCE!!!!!!!! Give them at least a chance to LIVE and grow and a CHANCE to make decisions and possibly contribute to society.

And you dare compare this to people on death row? Those put to death CHOSE their path in life. They had a chance and failed. Thats on them.

What is so damn hard about giving the unborn at least a chance? The same chance you had. The same chance anyone else has had. Why is that so friggin difficult to understand?

Why is Steve Jobs considered more important than other people?
If Hitler's parents decided to abort him, millions of people would have not lost their life.
