Adoption Is An Option

Extracts from this document...


Adoption Is An Option The idea of abortions has seemed to sweep through the United States throughout the past decade. The number of abortions has increased to surprising levels, and America has made abortions very accessible to its citizens. According to the latest statistics from www.Prolife.org, abortion rates have risen from 744,600 in 1973, when Roe v.s. Wade first happened, to a total of 1,365,730 abortions from '73 until 1993 in Massachusetts alone. 1996 statistics show over 38 million abortions have taken place since 1973, and that number has most definitely risen significantly higher since then. Is it a wonder our country is in such a mess right now? Is it possible that so many people can be so heartless as to choose to murder their babies in abortions? ...read more.


Should we kill them too, because their bodies don't have every single body part formed? What's the difference? There is none. Therefore, we must think of other alternatives as to what to do with a baby who's mother does not want them. That is where abortion comes in. If a mother does not want her baby so much that she would be willing to kill it, she has no excuse as to why she would be against giving the baby up for adoption after delivering it. Not only will adoption spare the baby's life, but it will also please a couple seeking a baby to love and care for.

As I said before, there is no excuse as to why a mother who wants an abortion can be against giving the baby to a loving couple for adoption. In conclusion, I believe anyone considering an abortion should think about what they are really going to be doing, and to then consider their alternatives. Adoption would save a life, make the mother feel better about the whole situation, and give the couple adopting the child the best gift anyone could ever receive. It would also please God, as He too values infants in their mother's wombs, even at the earliest stages. For He "... knit me in my mother's womb..." (Psalms 139:13), and "...created man in His image..." (Genesis 1:27). So before abortion, consider adoption, and save a life, while making everyone happy at the same time.
