umm, in response to that, it is not ALL just for the mother's best interest. She didn't elaborate in more detail about the hardships the child will go through in life. For apoption, when the child grows up to make their own decisions, that child mostly ALWAYS wants to track down the birth mother. Some kids become consumed and obsessed with finding answers about their biological background. Some of them go off to try to actually find their mother, and when they do, they find themselves deeply disappointed. Sometimes, mothers are all open arms to their child, but in most cases, the child deeply regrets even going to find the mother, after realizing the mother doesn't want a relationship, the mother is a bad person, addicted to drugs, etc. etc. That child will endure a life full of unanswered questions, full of self-loathing and turmoil. Who is to say that the adoptive parents won't be neglegent? There's really no telling, but a child who is adopted will always think about who their real parents are, and it does make their lives so difficult.<quoted text>
If a woman accidentally gets pregnant... please. Women don't accidentally get pregnant. They are careless. She may not be emotionally, mentally, physically, or financially ready for child.... Then protect yourself or refrain from having sex. The adoption opition IS easier said then done... This is true, however, well worth it!
During the first trimester, or the first 3 months, the baby is NOT a baby... Totally false. I am 2 months pregnant and saw the heartbeat the otherday. The head and body are forming... it looks like a baby. The reason they say undeveloped is because the baby cannot live on its own yet.
If we make abortion illegal, women will DIE trying to rid themselves of their unborn.... So, you believe women have more of a right to life than children?
NOT given up for adoption, the child could face poverty, a life with the birth mother, could put the child into poverty, the reason the mother may have wanted to give the child up in the first place... Today, any woman can walk into a hospital and leave their child (no questions asked). She can also give the child up for adoption.
The reason the child may have not given up the child for adoption, was an emotional strain. Adoption causes sever depression in women. And is therefore VERY difficult.... It's a sad day when a woman finds it much easier to kill her child than to give it up for adoption.
In conclusion, all of your arguements point to the well-being of the mother. It's all about making her feel better, making her happy, not inconveniencing her with a child... Please! We have become such a selfish people. Please rememeber that if a woman didn't give her child up for adoption, you wouldn't have had the PRIVILEGE to have been able to adopt.
Women should have no right to kill their unborn, ever!
A girl I know was on Methadone, and she felt it was ok to have her baby. She was poor, the father was 30 years older than her and uninterested in raising the child, and she was the most immature girl ever, in no way stable of being a mother. My heart sank for that child coming into the world. I'd rather not live that life, personally. As most would agree. Not only that, but she was on methadone the whole pregnancy, and they say it's safe to the baby, but the baby will still be born addicted, in withdrawal-and as it gets older, the child's motor skills and process of thinking will be slow and you will actually be able to tell what the mother had been doing. And she couldn't of quit the methadone midway thru her pregnancy, because the withdrawal she would endure through quitting, would cause even more complications to child. That is very dangerous to a baby. So, she was obviously between a rock and a hardplace... And she got her baby taken away.
I would never want to get an abortion myself, but for certain situations, I think it is crucial.
