I'm sure you've seen this. If not, please read and pass it on. It might not be a bad idea to post it again on today the 4th of July.

I survived an abortion

Yes, that's what usually happens. A baby farther along than expected is aborted using one of the techniques you mentioned and lives.

I am not an ultra fanatic with regarding my Pro Life beliefs, i.e. I would not kill or bomb an abortion clinic, or defend the person who does this. I don't shout down my colleagues who perform abortions, but they are not my friends.

But something bothers me about telling a young would be mother to adopt out her baby without her getting something in return. I don't know if this is against the law, I'm sure it's not, but I am for young mothers who opt to adopt getting paid, and paid well if they put the child up for adoption.

Why shouldn't a 16 year old girl, who chooses to have the baby, but who is clearly unable to care for it, not have the option of adopting the child out to another loving couple who is WILLING TO PAY THE WOMAN FOR ENDURING HER 9 MONTH PREGNANCY. I MEAN CARRYING A CHILD WOULD BE SIMILAR TO HER BEING EMPLOYED.

After birth the mother gives up the child, receives $100,000, and everyone is happy. The young girl learns from the experience and has the option of doing something positive with her life.

Why would anyone wish to give up their baby otherwise, unless child rearing appalls her?

It bothers me that Obama has more concern for animal rights, than human rights. If this guy is elected, Heaven help us. If late term abortion on demand is NOT wrong...THEN NOTHING IN THIS WORLD IS WRONG.

most girls who choose adoption do get their medical bills paid for. Sometimes they are provided housing and other necessities during their pregnancy (for ex...orgs like birthright offer housing)
Private agreements between birth mothers and adoptive families may cover a variety of expenses.
Perhaps some adoptive families do offer donations to the mother - I don’t know much about that.

The danger I see with your proposal is the obvious temptation to use childbirth as a moneymaking proposition.
You don’t think some girls would consider purposefully getting pregnant for 100 grand?

In the end it isn’t about money - it’s about recognizing who is a person, and who is “not”.
It comes down to issues of morals and human rights.

We’ve convinced young people these babies are not people to make it easier for them to take this “easy out”.
Only it ain’t easy.
Abortion is a terrible thing to suffer through - I saw it with many of my friends and some family members.
The clinic workers tickle their ears with phrases that appeal to their feelings of panic “clump of cells”, “not a baby yet,” “no one has to know”, “get your life back.”
And then afterward, when the girl takes time to learn the truth - that her baby was more than a clump of cells - well, she cannot undo what’s been done.

The truth is that there is no easy way out of a pregnancy.
Live birth, miscarriage, abortion - none of it is “easy”.

But we can do our best to promote the protection of innocent life and raise awareness about the scientific fact that life begins at conception.

God Bless!
