    Did everybody know you can make a poll where
    the results can be seen?
    It is the only way to go, when some are prohibited
    from answering.

    Another method is to have a vote "just looking, I am a man".

    Here is the early returns:

    ----------------------------
    Poll Results: Men Only: Abortion (14 votes.)
    If your Wife was raped and became pregnant , you would....

    want her to have the baby and raise him/her 36% (5)
    want her to have the baby and put him/her up for adoption 14% (2)
    want her to have an abortion 7% (1)
    want her to have an abortion, only if she was a couple of weeks pregnant or less 7% (1)
    not know what to do. 7% (1)
    support your wife, no matter what she chose. 29% (4)

    29 votes and only 5 would support their wife in one her most crucial moments in life. And 3 would want to kill their wifes child.

    I don't think by not selecting "support wife" we are not. You can only choose one option.

    the problem then arises when your wife is so emotionally scarred by the event that the thought of even having the child makes her ill. Then when she wants an abortion, you can't support her choice and stand morally at the same time... so I picked the adoption one.

    But we should not assume that abortion is the answer that avoids trauma. Alot of research has shown that Abortion is a quick fix but carries a life long trauma with it. End the end the cure may be worse than the disease in this case.

    No problem with that - I can agree totally. My response was based on my own situation.

    Someone whom I know very well explained to me interesting story about his wife. When she was raped and has a son before he married to her. This mother loves a son very much and raises him -- matter what. When he married her, he supports her fully and also raises him. He told me that he "adopts" his wife's son because he is infertile. They teach him anything what a little boy can learn from them. This mother and this adopt father are very happy together to have that boy!

    What do you think of purpose God has for them?

    There is, however, research that indicates that a woman who has an elective abortion is not emotionally scarred longterm (in the very least, not scarred in the manner which pro-life organizations often claim).

    I don't base my view on how much emotional trauma there is, or is not. Even if there is no trauma whatsoever, I believe elective abortion to be wrong.
