  • No, neither is understandable.
  • No and No.
  • fathers who kill kids are cruel evil heartless men women who have abortion cruel too theres always adoption ,fostering i dont believe i killing a innocent child
  • I don't understand killing anyone!
  • No it is very different. A collection of cells that is unable to live is not the same as a living, thinking, breathing child. If you ascribe to the anti-choice people's definition of "life" it would be illegal to remove a tumor as well as having an abortion. Each are made of the same stuff. To equate the two, a woman aborting and a father killing his living children, is incredibly simplistic.
  • It's no where near the same to abort an undeveloped collection of human-like cells, and to kill someone you have laughed and played with and loved for several years, then blame them for your problems and kill them.
  • Yes and no. The justification/reasoning is very similar: I'd rather kill my kid than have to let someone else feed and clothe him/her.
  • Yes, they basically say the same thing, but neither are understandable.
  • This is an interesting question indeed. I think 'akin' in the sense that the initial motivation may be the same, clearly not the same in degree. I also have a hard time imagining a man killing his child in a rational frame of mind while a woman can rationally choose an abortion (you may not agree with her reasoning but it can still be a rational decision).
  • any death is not right i like to think all life is worth the effort
  • Yeah, same same. Man loses his job/woman gets pregnant, both worry about not being able to take care of the kid(s) and decide death is a better solution. The only difference is that the mother doesn't also kill herself. Both are cruel, selfish, and inhuman.
  • The rationale and motive is the same: "I can't take care of my kid(s), so I'll kill them instead."
  • There is the same news story every week. A family deep in debt, unemployed, and at risk of losing everything, in great fear of not being able to provide for their family.   The same inhumane delusion as those who abort their progeny leads them to conclude that the kids are better off dead than poor.
  • Ther is no excuse to harm a child!!
  • Yes, it's the same motivation and same reasoning.
  • If you listen to the issues that drove them to that point, they are basically the same.
  • No. a clump of cells with no brain activity is not the same as a living human child, sorry.
  • I definitely am opposed to abortion, but you can't compare a father that murders a fully grown child to a mother getting an abortion. Abortion is murder though.
  • Both are very inhumane and immoral but the father killing the child is MUCH worse, and even worse beyond that if the child tries to defend him/herself and the father makes an effort to quash the child's defences and kill him/her anyway.
  • Yes, they are but neither are understandable.
  • No, one is killing a few human cells that have the potential to be a fully autonomous human being and the other is killing a fully autonomous human being. One is also against the law and the other is not.
  • No I do not believe it is the same thing. One is normally while the balance of the mind is disturbed or very depressed. The other is often for convenience or health reasons.
  • They are not the same thing at all. Abortions should only be done in a very small number of cases. Killing your kids because of loosing a job, thats 100% of the time uncalled for, theres no defending this no matter how you slice it.
  • Nice try, but not even close. One is murder. The other, a surgical procedure.
  • Lack of money is at the root of the issue in the majority of both cases. So, yes they are similar. However, neither can be understood, nor should they be.
  • Yes and no, I see both as killing, though the one killing the kids after being fired or whatever is a mental thing, desperation and hopelessness can screw a mind up. no excuse. Abortion a clearly thought out means to kill an unborn child rather than to have prevented it. No excuse. There are waiting lists for people waiting for babies to be placed for adoption. If the mothers real worry was carrying for her baby, she would give it up, not kill it. +4
  • No, they are not the same. A mother who chooses abortion is making a decision to end one life to preserve another. It may be only her own way of life, as she knows it, that is on the line but she is choosing that life. A father who kills his family after losing his job, isn't choosing to kill in order to preserve *any* life. He is "taking it with him when he goes" even if it is because he doesn't want to "worry" about what will become of those children when he is dead. He is choosing to end all choices for his already living children who had (unlike an unborn fetus who is dependent on the mother's bodily systems for life) options *seperate* of the father's apparent dead-end. Having said that, yes they are both understandable, even if it is only because desperation and mental imbalance is understandable. Excusable is a whole other story.
  • Don't judge someone until you've been in their shoes. Desperate times call for desperate measures.
  • They don't want to see their kids suffer.
