a lot of these people probably would not have been aborted regardless. in many of these cases the parents died while these famous people were young and so they were adopted by friends or relatives of the parents. so these names are all of people who were adopted by others but who would not necessarily have been aborted. although some probably would have like it looks like sarah mclaughlin's birth mother probably chose adoption over abortion. and this is not to say abortion is permissible. i'm pro-life but find better facts for a stronger argument.

John Lennon would never have been aborted. His mum just unfortunately died when he was a teenager and he lived with his Aunt Mimi. Paul McCartney's mum also died. Should he be on this STUPID list! The world would be the same place if 85% of those people had been aborted.

so weird to think that adopted people could've not made it into the world. i cant imagine not doin the things i have in life. and to know that these wonderful people influenced and made a difference in my life just like i may do some day is amazing and touches my heart. ya its sad to think a parent(s) dont want a child they want an irresponsible lifestyle but some where out there a family that deserves the opportunity to raise a child can have one with adoption being an option.

I was adopted at the age of 18 months after my biological parents GAVE me up-my adoptive parents raised me and taught me right from wrong-and in return I help save lives on a hourly/daily basis as a way of saying thankyou-giving back what I was given

George Washington Carver, actually. He developed many different uses for the peanut in the 1880s, including the invention of peanut butter.

Name just one aborted person. The mother of that unborn child will never forget her actions for the rest of her life. You don't have to be famous, growing up in a loving, caring family is a better option than what alot of kids get.

I have 2 adopted children- and thank God every day that their LOVING birth moms chose to give them life and share them with us since they didn't feel they could do them justice.
