2.20.10 Abortion: An alternative to pro life and pro choice
There is an alternative to pro life and pro choice, especially when the foetus is potentially damaged.
When the technology has been perfected to freeze and store embryos let this be a third choice.
I have a profoundly disabled son with learning disabilities, my first born, who is the love of my life. If my wife and I had the choice in 1977, we would still have had Kristian and neither aborted nor frozen his embryo, yet I will never criticise those that do. I firmly believe our Creator God has built a backup system for human beings and a potential for rebirth or resurrection in the future. If a computer has a backup, shouldn't a human being?
Not connected with the above statements, I have personally experienced the emotions surrounding an unplanned pregnancy which could have created many problems at the time. Although nature took its course and a miscarriage occurred, it would have been preferable to have a third option: temporary freezing and storing the embryo.
Let embryo freezing be a third choice to pro life and pro choice. As such, at a given point in time, 12 years after freezing takes place or when the mother reaches a certain age, if neither parent wishes to have the baby, one final option should be offered: the transplant of the frozen stored foetus to one of thousands of women who cannot conceive a baby. There will not be a shortage of volunteers. Nevertheless, the responsibility what to do will at all times remain with the parents, specifically the mother. They are answerable to their consciences and to their spiritual beliefs and not to the state or religious clerics.
