Reply to "population doubles"

To say that someone should not reproduce and to kill a life already conceived are 2 separate notions that are not even in the same book, let alone on the same page.

I am saying, that with the over abundance of children without parents in this world, why would you want to have a child on purpose that you know you are passing down a possibly life debilitating gene to? Adopt! The other life is not here, not even an embryo, there is no love yet, so it is not the same thing. I hope you can separate the two.

I know that we, as animals, have an innate need to reproduce in our likeness. But we also have the intelligence to see get past that and if we didn't then there are a whole bunch of things that we do for the sake of society that are against our nature that we need to rethink.

Consider 2 people wanting a child, who both carry the sickle cell gene. I am not 100% sure of the facts, others can input here, but I believe that it is almost certain that the child will develop the disease. Who would want to give their child a painful disease like that? That is why people now get tested for this, maybe even before getting married. Do you consider this the same thing? Should they not care and just have the child anyway... cause after all, sickle cell needs to live too?

Enough people wish they were not born because of the painful diseases they live with, but all life is precious, once it exists. Do not confuse my words.
