Everyone is wanting to promote adoption. Even OriginsUSA had a pro-lifer show up on their email list. Why is it so hard to see that adoption is not the only answer for abortions? Why can't we as a society promote family preservation as an answer too?
Family Preservation wrote about this on Op Ed News as well. Florida's Pro-Life license plate program does not go to help mothers who want to parent their own children. It only goes to women who want to place their children for adoption.
I have posted about Bank of America providing a credit card to help adoptive parents pay for their adoptions. Now Chase Banks are doing the same with a home equity line for adoption called New Additions. The article can be found here.
I am not dead set against adoption. I realize in our society we will always have a need for it. I do believe that prospective adoptive parents are just as taken advantage of as the rest of us. Adoption should not be used as a way of appeasing adoptive parents. It should be about giving children homes.
If we as a society really want to reduce the need for abortions, other ways must be looked at. Sex education, contraception, and parenting must be looked at.
