"A Minneapolis couple is preparing for the arrival of their first child. That is, unless internet voters decide they should have an abortion instead.What will be next? A poll to kill a wife or husband? A poll to commit infanticide? A poll to commit rape? God help us.
Pete and Alisha Arnold have created a website called Birthornot.com, where they've been posting updates on Alisha's pregnancy since September. But this site is unlike any other expectant parent's blog: this site has a poll that asks viewers, "Should we give birth or have an abortion?"
In an interview with Gawker.com, the Arnolds said they were unsure if they wanted to be parents. After two miscarriages, they said they launched the site to put the choice in voter's hands.
"Voting is such an important part of who we are as a people," Pete Arnold told the website. "Here's a chance where people can be heard about whether they are pro-choice or whether they are pro-life, and it makes a difference in the real world."
The Arnolds said in the interview that they are taking the poll seriously and that it was not a prank, but the final vote isn't binding. The poll closes on December 7, two days before the end of the 20th week of pregnancy and their last chance to get an abortion."

This is evil regardless of the motivation of the parents. To make your unborn child's life dependent on the way people vote is demented. From Weasel Zippers via Fox4:
