The Doctor’s Solution

by unknown

A worried woman went to her gynecologist and said, “Doctor, I have a serious problem and desperately need your help! My baby is not even one year old and I’m pregnant again. I don’t want kids so close together.”

So the doctor said, “Okay, and what do you want me to do?” She said, “I want you to end my pregnancy, and I’m counting on your help with this.”

The doctor thought for a little and after some silence he said to the lady, “I think I have a better solution for your problem. It’s less dangerous for you, too.”

She smiled, thinking the doctor was going to accept her request.

Then he continued, “You see, in order for you not to have to take care of two babies at the same time, let’s kill the one in your arms. This way, you could rest some before the other one is born. If we’re going to kill one of them, it doesn’t matter which one it is. Also there would be no risk for your body if you chose the one in your arms.”

The lady was horrified and said, “No, doctor! How terrible! It’s a crime to kill a child!”

“I agree,” the doctor replied. “But you seemed to be okay with it, so I thought maybe that was the best solution.”
