    Kinda torn on this one….

    On one hand, yeah, that’s a prime candidate for abortion if there ever was one.

    OTOH, kids like this are the perfect guinea pig for medical advances. “Experimental” stuff tried on her become routine medical practice for when your best friend mangles their face in a car accident.

    You’re right, the parents were selfishly thinking of the publicity and income their child would generate when they chose to keep her and go forward with reconstructive surgeries to allow her to talk, see, eat and live a semi-normal life. Of course, if I was in that situation I would rather be dead than learning how to dance, read and write, grow up in a family who sacrifices themselves to give me a face, a name, and their love.
