Re: What if your child was mentally incompetent
It really depends on the severity of the impairment. If it were down syndrome or a disorder that would require lifelong care, I would urge my wife to strongly consider abortion, the same with physical defects. If it is something that isn't apparent until after birth, like autism, I would care for the child and provide all that I need to to meet his or her special needs. If it were a mental disorder like schizophrenia, I would be especially understanding of this, as mental health issues run in my family, and I myself am diagnosed schizotypal. Things that can be controlled with medicines are pretty much a non issue in this day and age.
