I can never understand why people would go through with the birth of a kid with such serious defects that end up being a drain on themselves and society.

You could say the same about all seniors with health problems -- want to sail grandpa and grandma off to the deep sea, and push them overboard ?

At least grandpa and grandma know when they've **** themselves. Anencephaly is ****ing awful, I sympathise with any woman who finds out their unborn child has this birth defect. I find it much harder however, to sympathise with somebody who would choose to go full term, then trick themselves into thinking their literally brainless child is gift from some sort of god.

It is a case of insanity overpowering simple logic.
There is no person here but bio waste and a good dissection experiment.

I think everyone should be given that chance. Life is too important not to.

I'm not sure you guys are really understanding what this condition actually does. Kind of admire your naivety in a messed up sort of way...

I'm confused, I thought emotions (him smiling), more importantly, that motor function was controlled by the brain...? No brain... how does he do anything? Explain please.

Motor functions, breathing, heart rate, reflexes, and some miscellaneous functions are controlled by the brain stem.... He could live, move to some degree (though likely with no coordination or.... "intent," for lack of a better word) It's definitely possible for him to live... I, personally, just discount the idea that he could show emotion and be reactive in any more than an instinctual way.... I think sometimes people, especially parents, see what they want to see... Which is why they say he could do x, y, and z when his brain stem is simply incapable of doing so.
