"Why abort an infant when you can have it adopted?"

~One cannot 'abort' (termination of a pregnancy) an infant. And adoption is not an alternative to abortion; adoption is an alternative to raising your child yourself.


Why abort an infant when you can have it be adopted?

What reason does a 37 year old woman have for aborting versus adoption rather than not wanting to deal with the physical pain of pregnancy and childbirth?


It could be that she and her husband have known eachother for "25 years or so" even if they haven't been married that long. I met my husband when I was 15 and while we've only been married for 5 years, I've known him and been "together" with him for more than a decade. Perhaps it is the same with the first Woman?


Wait a minute -- the first woman was 37 years old but had been married for 25 years? So does that mean she married when she was 12? In some parts of the world this does happen so it's possible that's the case with her, but is it possible there's an error somewhere too?


Thank God for the work you do.


Oh LaShonda, what courage, what grace. May your young child always be the delight of your life.
