Why anyone would vote, in the first place is beyond me. Why anyone would, post such a poll is probably the bigger question. I debated as to whether I would even give a second thought to doing my article about this supposed controversy. I decided to do it, not to give more attention to these people who have made a private decision public, and allegedly, not allegedly staged the whole thing. I am doing it because, whether you think it is a private one or not, staging it, well to me, is disturbing.
Take off the table whether the father has a say. Take off the table whether abortion is right or wrong. Take off the table whether the mother in this scenario ever considered aborting the fetus they call “Baby Wiggles”.
Now, that in mind, fast forward ten years at the very least. “Baby Wiggles” now has a real name. A real school, real friends, and a real life. The jury is still out whether or not the child has a chance at a normal upbringing. Was any thought given to the aftermath of this ridiculous blog? Apparently not much. The father posted it, and the mother has been fired from her job because of it.
The internet is now infected with sides who say warranted, unwarranted, and who cares? My question, is do the parents of “Baby Wiggles”? I could not care less about the parents and whether or not this was a hoax, a ploy, a statement, etc.
I want to be at the birth of the child to swoop it up, and carry it off to parents who would think of the child’s life beyond their own typing skills. Maybe dad should put down the laptop and head for parenting classes. He is after all the pro life supporter in the equation. Maybe the question that should be posed to him is pro what kind of life?
Some people argue that a test should be taken before you become a parent. A test that reveals whether or not you are fit. Up until now, I do not think I really ever felt that way. With maybe the exception of the other infamous parental ridiculous hoax of balloon boy.
Good Luck “Baby Wiggles”. I am not including a link to the blog this article discusses. I have given it enough undue attention, and if you want to poison your system with the blog itself, than I would rather you decide that for yourself. My concern is whether the child ever really had a chance, not whether these two “parents” had a political agenda or even a point.
Something tells me that long after this child is born and this story forgotten, it will resurface. Here is a poll. Good parenting? You decide.
