Adoption vs. Abortion
THE DIFFERENCE BETWEEN ADOPTION AND ABORTION
Adoption enables you to offer life for your child, allowing him or her to be the person God created them to be.
With adoption, you are able to get updates and pictures, and share correspondences.
You can look back on your decision and feel good about your decision.
After placement, you can pursue your previous goals and dreams for your life.
You will remember giving birth and that will allow you to hold, name and love on your child.
Many Birthmothers have told me that they feel a sense of true peace after they place. I also have seen some impacted in such a positive way that they become social workers in order to help and encourage other young Birthmothers.
Abortion ends with taking the life of the child, taking away the chance for them to be the person God created them to be.
By choosing abortion you will never be able to see what they might have become, or what they would have looked like.
You may feel a sense of guilt or shame about your choice to abort. Abortion is definitive, for there is no way to go back and change it.
You may have a unfortunate memory of the experience of abortion, not to mention the possible physical risks to your body. It would also steal the chance for you to know or treasure you baby.
I can honestly say that not one person I have ever spoken to over a 25 year span has ever told me they were happy and grateful for the abortion they had. I often hear that if they could go back in time and change their decision they would.
