Couple Hold Poll On Whether To Abort Or Not

Minnesota couple Pete and Alisha Arnold say they’re letting the Internet decide whether or not they get an abortion. The couple—who have been posting ultrasound pictures at birthornot.com—say the move is an exercise in democracy. They plan to keep the poll open for as long as Alisha, now 17 weeks pregnant, can legally get an abortion, and claim the results will be the deciding factor in whether they keep the fetus or not. “Give Birth” has 46% of the vote at the moment, with “Have an Abortion” at 54%.

There seem to be three possibilities here, Alicia Chen notes at Gawker. This could be an “idiotic prank” by a couple intent on becoming famous. It could be a pro-life stunt and the site is “a confused parable to illustrate the peril of putting an unborn baby’s life in the hands of voters.” Or, thirdly, the couple are really planning to have an abortion based on the results of an Internet poll. All three options plainly “suggest these people should never, ever raise a kid,” Chen writes.

They are asking for some serious trouble. If they abort the baby after publicizing it the pro-lifers are going to come after them with a vengeance. The doctor won't be safe either.
