Like others, I doubt that this story is true.

But if you think it is, maybe you could tell us why it would be a good idea for this woman to raise a child.

My general opinion is that women can be trusted to know whether or not they should be raising a child.

IF this story's true: she IMHO needed to be locked up and have a psych eval done on her because she's a nut case.

If the story is true, then she made the right decision because she doesn't sound like she is fit to raise a child.

I agree. Sounds like it was written to be inflammatory.

I have no reason to doubt the story. The world is full of creeps, and this person has NO business getting pregnant - EVER! She wouldn't do a daughter any favors, that's for sure.

I just wonder who in the Hell was wrong enough in the head to sleep with her?

It may have involved a lot of alcohol

Those of you that don't believe things like this happen must be living under a rock. Come out and see the real world as it is today. It is not a pretty sight.

Historically abortion based on gender has been commonplace.

Thousands of girls are aborted due to gender: Study finds couples from cultures in which sons are deemed more desirable are terminating female pregnancies | Daily Mail Online

With the poor sourcing it is hard to say whether it happened in this case, but if it did it is hardly a surprise.

Agreed. And even if it's true, sex selective abortions have been going on for decades. Just ask China and India. Rural areas are suffering a severe gender imbalance because women abort female fetuses. This has caused a lot of problems for these countries.

What a load of rubbish. The jab at OWS was a nice touch, I must say.
