The discussion of abortion often negates the very real and very positive option of Adoption. Adoption has never been at the heart of any major “pro-choice” organization, especially Planned Parenthood. “Choice” is a sham. In 2010 they committed 329,445 abortions, while only serving 31,098 prenatal clients and making a measly 841 adoption referrals. That’s 392 abortions for every ONE adoption referral.
Children deserve better. Women deserve better. Would-be fathers deserve better. For those who may be considering abortion, there are women who’ve been where you are and can help you make a fully-informed decision that benefits you and your baby. (You can also simply call 1-800-395-HELP for confidential and compassionate help.)
Well-known individuals, who have influenced our lives in some way, were adopted and had (or continue to have) an amazing impact on the world around them: Charles Dickens, George Washington Carver, Langston Hughes, Nat King Cole, Babe Ruth, Dave Thomas (Wendy’s), Bo Diddley (musician/performer), Dan O’Brien (Olympic Decathalon Gold Medalist), Melissa Gilbert (“Little House”…), Lynette Cole (Miss USA 2000), Steve Jobs (Apple), and Faith Hill. No matter the perceived worldly success of an adoptee, adoption is a loving act and transforms not only the life of the child but the entire family.
