I just read this on Emily’s blog and had to share it.

Subject: A Doctor’s Wisdom

A worried woman went to her gynecologist and said: Doctor, I have a serious problem and desperately need your help! My baby is not
even 1 yr. old and I’m pregnant again. I don’t want kids so close
together. So the doctor said: ‘Ok and what do you want me to do?’ She
said: ‘I want you to end my pregnancy, and I’m counting on your help with this.’  The
doctor thought for a little, and after some silence he said to the
lady: ‘I think I have a better solution for your problem. It’s less
dangerous for you too.’ She smiled, thinking that the doctor was going to accept her request.  Then he continued:
‘You see, in order for you not to have to take care of 2 babies at the
same time, let’s kill the one in your arms. This way, you could rest
some before the other one is born. If we’re going to kill one of them,
it doesn’t matter which one it is. There would be no risk for your body
if you chose the one in your arms. The lady was horrified and said: ‘No
doctor! How terrible! It’s a crime to kill a child!  ’I agree’, the
doctor replied. ‘But you seemed to be ok with it, so I thought maybe
that was the best solution. The doctor smiled, realizing that he had
made his point. He convinced the mom that there is no difference in
killing a child that’s already been born and one that’s still in the
womb. The crime is the same!
