“but I think youre asking much for a young mother to give up her child. “
I’m not asking her to give up her child.
I’m asking her not to kill the child.
” At least she can say to her daughter if they ever meet, I did this because I was poor and the last thing I wanted to do was an abortion.”
Well...she can still say that with adoption.
On the other hand, what you are suggesting is that she could later meet the child and say “I’m sorry - I saw an economic opportunity, and chose to get pregnant for the money. I had you so I could get a 100K”
“Im sorry, this country is FULL of unwed, uneducated young mothers whose only success in life is having a baby, which her mother or grand mother raise.”
yes - I know that.
I’m just not comfortable with the idea that it would be good to economically exploit them for the use of their wombs.
Some might put this in the “human trafficking” category.
No, I’m not saying that all. I’m saying realistically, how can a 16 yr old 20 year old single parent work and raise a child. Abortion is the easy way, that planned parenthood prescribes. Adopting the child to a loving family who is willing to reimburse the mother for carrying the child, and agreeing to give it up. For giving the GIFT of life...WHY SHOULD ANYONE FEEL EMBARRASSED ABOUT THAT?
I have friends who have adopted Phillipino and Russian babies. They’ve paid tens of thousands to agencies....The mothers in those instances get zero..
You would see a precipitous drop in abortions and young single mothers if there was a adoption service that realistically reimbursed the mother for her gift.
“Some might put this in the human trafficking category.”
I’m saying that the whole adoption thing needs to me relooked at, because for many young mothers, the child is raised by her mother and grandmother....because there is no other option. I’m sorry, but how is this different from surrogate parenting?
