What if the choice had beem different...
Scheible’s plan went awry when the ideal couple decided they wanted a baby girl, sending the agency back to the waiting list to a couple named Paul and Clara Jobs, who — according to Steve — said simply “Of course.” When Scheible discovered they didn’t have a college education, she balked, but finally agreed when they promised to give Steve a college education.
In this age of easy abortion this story begs for the question: "what if..." What if the circumstance had been today and the choice had been to abort? Is there a person in the world whose life has not been directly or indirectly benefited in some way by Steve Jobs and the accomplishments of his company? Surely this is not about capitalism or about the impact of Jobs on the world but about the simple choice of whether or not to abort... Think of the consequences if the circumstance and choice had been different....
BTW I honor the choice of the girl who placed him for adoption. This is no cowardly answer but the most noble choice... then and now. I also honor the loving home and support Paul and Clara Jobs gave to this child who became their son. Only heros in this background story to a giant among modern day men!

Was Steve Jobs a Christian? Or Jesus his Savior or was he a Buddist or atheist?
Wow. Why are so many celebrities Buddhists?
