I think that anti-abortionists, instead of concentrating solely on trying to ban abortions, should concentrate their efforts on trying to change the ridiculous restrictions on adoption that are in place in this country, and make adoption easier for most couples.
There are 1000's of couples who would love to adopt an unwanted baby and save it from being aborted, but they can't - their appllcation to adopt is rejected.
It takes an obscene amount of money to adopt (even through a state agency), and many couples simply can't afford that cost.
If the physical appearance of your home doesn't quite meet their standards, you'll be rejected. When a social worker comes to your home to inspect it and if you don't have baseboards along the walls or what they think is the "required" number of bedrooms and bathrooms, you'll be rejected.
If your yearly income isn't quite as much as they think it needs to be, you'll be rejected. If the woman has to work outside the home to make ends meet, you'll most likely be rejected. If one of you is "too old" or "too young", you'll be rejected. If you haven't been married for "X" number of years, you'll be rejected. If you're single, then FORGET IT!
There would probably be fewer abortions, if an expectant mother could be sure that she could put her unwanted child up for adoption and that the child would be adopted by a couple who wants a child and would give it a loving home; but with the restrictions on adoption that are now in place, most likely her child will NEVER be adopted.
