Not sure how come this conversation came up during lunch last week, but I feel it is something to ponder upon....
If you are a married man & one day your pregnant wife is in the delivery ward struggling to deliver the baby...due to unforseen circumstances, the gynae told u to leave the ward and wait outside....
"We have tried all we can, but we can only safe either the baby OR the mother...now the decision lies with you."
What will you answer?
Infact when asked this question, 99.9% of guys will answer : "Safe my wife!"
What if you are the mother? What if the question is posted to YOU by the gynae? Will you tell the gynae to safe your baby or yourself?
I almost immediately answered :"Ofcoz safe my baby!" You wont know how it feels being a pregnant mother, building the whole baby bit by bit in your own body...it's just different!
But then again, I was posted with subsequent question :"So you want your baby to be neglected since birth and then when your hubby re-marries another woman, you want your baby to be tortured & mistreated by her?"
Err...I cant answer that question....Obviously I dont want my baby to suffer, but it will be too painful for me to stay alive by sacrificing the baby!
What do you think?
