Okay Ken, let's see if I understand your postion correctly:

If people don't think they can be good parents, they have the RIGHT to terminate the pregnancy (What I call killing a baby).

You don't think there are enough adoptive parents out there so why not let some people choose to terminate the surplus early (What I call killing a baby).
You assert that because I disagree, that ends my right to a moral position ("Don't have an abortion")(What I call moral relativism).

You assert that some potential parents can demonstrate their responsibility by terminating a potential child and thereby show their fiscal prudence (What I call irresponsible).

Okay Ken, here's my position. All people, once created by any means, have the right to be born and live, regardless of manner of conception, potential economic prospects, potential future health care, potential future disabilities, potential future ANYTHING.

If their numbers can be reduced by early abortions, if that's the egg donors'decisions, sobeit.

"I think that all pro abortion supporter's should be aborted." I don't, but how arbitrary is that? Your position is just as arbitrary.

Its apples and oranges. First, we all die, or hadn't you noticed? Second, do I advocate genocide? No.

It's not apples and oranges. The only difference, IMO, is the age of the person that is being terminated. You assert that if the parents determine that the fetus will not have the best life, then canx it early. What's the difference between that and the determination that all those sick, poor, starving children out there in the rest of the world don't have a shot at the best life and so should be canxed as well? Think about it. The only difference is age. Why does one group have a right to live and the other doesn't? You can come to the same conclusions about their futures but can legally only kill one of the two. Why not both?
