Abortion isn’t the answer for unwanted children, adoption is

Some people claim that it is unfair to bring a child into this world who would be unwanted, and that abortion is the answer. Why would someone think that violent death (which is what abortion is) is preferable to an opportunity to live life to the fullest? No, death isn’t the answer, adoption is the answer to abortion.

You undoubtedly know good people who have lived wonderful lives who were adopted. Most quietly raised their family and contributed to their communities in ways that never made the news.

Famous adoptees

Some had a big impact, such as the founder of Apple Computer, Steve Jobs; John Lennon of Beatles fame; and Bill Clinton, 42nd president of the United States.

Ironically, Mr. Clinton has been an advocate of abortions rights. However, his belief that abortion should be “safe, legal, and rare,” is a far cry from his party’s current position that abortion should be unregulated for the full nine months of pregnancy; that Catholic doctors, nurses, and hospitals be compelled to provide them; and that taxpayers should pay for them.

A season of miracles

Perhaps the former president preferred rare abortions because he appreciated the value of adoption:

“We must work tirelessly to make sure that every boy and girl in America who is up for adoption has a family waiting to reach him or her. This is a season of miracles, and perhaps there is no greater miracle than finding a loving home for a child who needs one.”

The conversation that takes place in the video above provides you with a quick way to respond if you’re ever in that situation.

For the record, Iowa has an excellent track record when it comes to abortion. According to the National Council for Adoptions:

“In 2014, four states had Adoption Option Indexes three or more times higher than the national average-Utah (36.3), Arkansas (26.8), Montana (23.1), and Iowa (21.4). There were two to four adoptions for every 100 abortions plus births to unmarried women in these states. This suggests that in these states women may have more extensive counseling, services, and facilities to orient pregnant women towards adoption-among other factors.”

But at the national level, some 36 couples wait in line for every available infant child adoption, an especially tragic number in light of the millions of abortions that have taken place over the years in this country. Those children could have been adopted.

Adoption is the answer to abortion

adoption is the answer to abortionTwo million couples want to adopt a child and provide a loving home. And yet only 4% of women with an unwanted pregnancy place their children through adoption.

Interestingly, 61% of all children adopted by kindergarten were children of color, according to the Institute for Family Studies. In other words, familial love cuts across racial barriers.

The next time someone claims that it is unfair to bring a child into the world that is unwanted, remind them that two million couples are on their knees praying for God to bring them a child.

Adoption is the answer to abortion.
