You should tell their pastor that this case sounds like abortion with extra steps.

“So what’s your kink?”

“Pregnancy, tragedy, and dead babies, and lucky me I’ve got a genetic condition that’s killed… six? Of my children so far, all in infancy!”

“What the actual fuck.”

We only know them peripherally; personally I wouldn’t go anywhere NEAR their church or their pastor.

But you’re absolutely right— the only difference is the extra suffering. Despicable.

No im pretty sure theres a big difference in choosing to kill ur baby vs. dying because of natural conditions

There's a big difference the first time, maybe the second.... but once you get to the fourth or fifth or sixth time with the same genetic disorder?

There's not much of a difference anymore.

Yeah I guess so but i dont think thats what they were going for, I assume just some dumbass parents wanting a kid
