    I was reading about Paul Dirac when I ran across an article about that autism and prenatal test.If a test existed (if it hasn't already),and your foetus was diagnosed autistic, would you abort it?
    If so or not,why?

    While I'm pro-choice, I don't think I could go through with an abortion myself. I would keep the child and hope that the result was wrong or that the autism wouldn't be too severe.

    I will keep my baby and love it just the way it is. Even if it was born with 6 legs, or no arms, eyes or whatever it is mine. And nothing can take that away from me.

    Not a women, but I'm on the autistic spectrum, and I honestly think that the women should decide to terminate the pregnancy. This disability has left me completely alone, and alienated, no friends, no relationships, no close ties to my family; and has precipitated severe depression from which I've attempted suicide. It would be good if I had never come to exist.
