Abortion should stand as the model for why conservatives oppose progressives. I well remember the original cries to legalize abortion to take it out of the “alley and coat hanger” age and promote health. From there it progressed to a form of birth control, and now they push for infanticide. Make a mistake with birth control? Take a Mulligan, only now it takes a life. An elderly friend and his wife literally adopted the child of a minority, crack addicted whore. They went through a rough withdrawal period, but now have a bright, cute, loving and well adjusted child. I have no doubt the world will be better off with this child than having it sucked out of the womb. Life is precious and deserves to be protected.
What would be wrong for a young girl who is pregnant, faced with the usual single parent dilemma and all the stats that point to all the problems vs what happens to the baby if adopted to a loving family, is given the option to have a family pay her for her baby ie to adopt it?
I’m talking about the family enters into a contract with the to be mother to:
1. Pay her medical and dental expenses to have the baby.
2. Provides an education trust fund that will pay for college or technical school for her.
3. An allowance for clothing, dental, etc.
It seems the only options given to these young girls, is abortion or to have the baby in an environment of poverty.
Giving up the baby for adoption should be a noble choice and they should reap some financial reward for that.
Jerry Falwell as I recall provided a home for these girls when they were pregnant. That’s fine, but you carry a baby to term, you should have the opportunity to have the baby adopted, and be financially rewarded for it.
Americans pay thru the nose to various agencies for babies from abroad. Why can’t we do that here? How is this different that entering into contract with a surrogate mother?
