I honestly don't think you could handle a child until they were aroundfive years old in that case.

I have a sister and she has autism. I love her to death. Of course I wish she was a healthy child but I've learned to accept it. I feel like there's a possibility you would change your mind if you actually went through the experience.

It SO depends on the disorder or disability. Some disorders/disabilities are treated fairly easy and may not be a burdensome.

Yes, I totaly agree. You would still love them, but in the back of your mind, you would say, "I wonder what life would be like if my child could see, or had more friends. Maybe he or she would be happier." But I guess it would teach you patience and unconditional love.

They wouldn't be born jewish, legally they aren't jewish until they convert which can't be done until the age of 18 without parental consent. That being said i have nothing against jews and it was just a random comment which I could have applied it to anything such as black, asian etc. And yes i obviously got downvotes because i said that it would be terrible if my children were jewish hahaha, i get it.

I'm 75% certain that by the time out generation is old enough to have kids, we can just pick and choose which sperm and egg cell to use, and this will allow us to even pick how our children will turn out and prevent birth defects.

They already have ovary banks, so it's definitely possible. But it's a surgical process, so nowhere near as easy as pleasuring yourself into a cup.

This might sound horrible but I have epilepsy and I feel like if I have a child, there's a possibility that they might get it. Because of this, I don't want a child. Mainly because I wouldn't want them to deal with it and I also wouldn't have the ability to deal with it.

When you grow up with a disabled sibling you kind of get past that whole thing.

Honestly, it's really not as big a deal as people tend to think it is. Everyone acts like if they have a disabled child, their life is going to be RUINED and they're going to be such a burden to society and oh boo hoo poor me poor me.

God, shut up.

The only way that's going to happen is if you LET it happen.

Sure, maybe you have to fight a little extra hard for your kid. But guess what? That's **** life.

I actually disagree. There are many different kinds of disorders, and some people are not mentally able to deal with raising a disabled child, and depending on the disability many will not have to "fight a little extra hard" but a lot extra. There are disorders with varying degrees of severity. Having a disabled child often ruins marriages, and it can also be financially ruining. Some parents cannot handle it and send the child to a special institution. Some people think it would be too much and opt to have abortions before the child is born. It can be life-ruining, or at least your life may never be the same again. That doesn't mean you can't love the child, though. I would recommend reading "The Boy Who Loved Windows." It's about a family's struggle to raise a boy with autism. It's a true story written by the mother who experienced it all. Also, imagine raising a child with Tay-Sachs or something only to have them pass away from it. That must be devastating.

One of my exes had a speech delay till he was five, so when he was little he would just run around and act out constantly since he was so frustrated that he couldn't communicate. I know that's not as serious as blindness or autism, but that would be terrifying for me to have in a child.

Not necessarily with blindness. More like mental retardation.

See, I've been around a lot of people with disabilities. My elementary school had a lot of blind kids in the regular classes, a good friend of my mom's teaches deaf kids, my uncle is in a wheelchair (not sure if that's the kind of thing you meant, but I'm counting it) my friends sister has downs and we have "Best Buddies" in my school which is where once a week you eat lunch with the special ed kids. Most of the time they can live fairly normal lives and seem fairly happy. There was a blind teacher at my elementry school and she taught my class some about it, and it isn't as bad as you would think. I'm not wishing I'll have a kid with a disability, but I'm not worried about it.
