Yes. Baby. Not child. Baby. Let’s just forget about those kids languishing in foster care, hmmm?
Because abolishing abortion is the perfect way to solve the waiting lists for healthy infants.
I will admit that adopting from foster care is not for everyone. Many of the children come with challenges that a lot of people are not equipped to handle. But if you are waiting for a healthy infant to adopt, you also have to accept you are going to be waiting quite a while.
Forcing women to go through pregnancy so that there are infants to adopt is frankly an awful idea. Society did it pre Roe vs. Wade and it didn’t work so well. We end up in a situation where women are judged for how worthy they are to raise a child.
Nevermind unless societal attitudes shift, judging women for how ‘fit’ they are to raise a child (Single mother? Teen mother? Nope!), it’s very likely adoption rates wouldn’t go up anyway.
Granted, they cite LifeSiteNews so I wouldn’t expect them to actually do real research into the topic.
Everyone should have a right to have an infant, a baby to call theirs that they raised from such a young age. Lots of people would prefer a baby over a child in foster care, not just because the foster care child has “problems,” but because the family that is adopting may not be able to have a child, they want to have every stage of a child, including the stage of infancy. So no, they did not “just forget about those kids languishing in foster care”. But it is their right to want to have a baby, and they are 100% allowed to be annoyed with having to wait if they are not able to have their own child because all couples should have the right to have a child, but since some are not able to, it is inevitable that they will become frustrated with waiting for a baby, and nobody should be able to tell them to not be frustrated.
I don’t think the OP’s problem is with the people being frustrated with not being able to have a baby. They are allowed to be frustrated and upset. But it is not someone else’s fault that they can get pregnant and someone else can’t. And it is not right to say, “Because you can have a baby, you should keep it” or feel ashamed because you can and you didn’t.
I mean, a lot of kids are in foster care, because people were put under that stress and pressure of keeping the baby when they couldn’t take care of it, and that led to children being taken away.
I think (and I think OP thinks) that everyone just needs to chill with the shaming when it comes to abortion.
