The father has syphilis and the mother has tuberculosis. They have had four children. The first one was blind, the second one died, the third one was deaf and dumb, and the fourth one had tuberculosis.
The mother is now pregnant with her fifth child but is willing to have an abortion if you determine that she should. What would you decide for her?
A. Choose to have the child.
B. Choose to have an abortion.
If you chose “A” … congratulations! You have just chosen to save the life of one of the world’s greatest composers – Ludwig van Beethoven.
