I'm thinking this goes in the "now I've seen everything" category of life.
My thoughts: this couple is too idiotic and immature to raise a child.
So far more than 150,000 people have voted, mostly in favor of birth.
Both pro-choicers and pro-lifers feel that the poll is an attack against them. The creators of the site say "For the first time, your vote on the topic of abortion can make a difference."
I won't be voting either way.

About That Couple Taking Votes Whether to Abort...
By Jill Stanek | November 18, 2010 | 23:11
I got a heads up about the blog BirthorNot.com about a month ago.
A pregnant married couple is taking votes whether to abort their baby boy or carry him to term.
The last day of the pregnancy they say they can legally abort in their home state of Minnesota is December 9, a day before the baby is 20 weeks old. And, they say, they will go however the final vote tally goes.
Although the posts appeared plausible when I perused them, the concept had "scam" written all over it. So I didn't buy in. My thought was the couple was trying to punk pro-lifers.
In the last few days the blogosphere has gotten hold of the story, and I've received several emails to write about it. It appears Gawker started the chatter after interviewing the couple, Pete and Alisha Arnold.
The reaction has been most interesting. Pro-choicers think this is a scam against them. Now, while pro-lifers are becoming incensed and begging the couple not to abort, pro-choicers are becoming incensed and wanting the couple to be shot.
