In fact, most kids put up for adoption don't actually get adopted; they just sit in childrens homes or are shunted from foster home to foster home. The regulations for adoption over here are so convoluted that most childless couples end up going abroad to adopt, for example to China. Plus, it's only so called perfect children, mostly babies, who get adopted; there are thousands of Downs Syndrome, autistic, mentally and physically disabled and otherwise affected kids who languish in childrens homes cuz of this.
Fact is, adoption isn't the fairy tale "Every kid gets a nice home with lovely people" story that pro-lifers would have you believe. Childrens homes too are rife with abuse, both physical and sexual, resulting in very damaged children who when they are finally released as adults, often go right into crime. Rather than force Little Miss Crack Whore to give birth constantly, how about having her forcably sterilised? I'd personally advocate that in cases like you're suggesting.
Also, some of these girls keep their babies and the babies end up either dying from neglect or abuse, or growing up to be sexually or physically abused by the girl's boyfriend(s). In cases like this, better out of life than in it. Even if the baby is given up, it may have permanent damage from Little Miss Crack Whore's lifestyle; for example, Fetal Alcohol Syndrome, or damage from the mother taking drugs in pregnancy.
Even the effects from self abortion count; true, not many people are going to care if Little Miss Crack Whore dies from giving herself an air embolism from an attempt to syringe soapy water up herself, but someone is still dying from it, the fetus and the mother. Plus, a failed self abortion can seriously damage the growing fetus.
In conclusion, I'd say abortion is a necessary evil; true, some people abuse it, but that's nothing to the misery that would happen if it were made illegal.
This year, I'm going to join our American cousins and celebrate Thanksgiving the old fashioned way. By which I mean I'm going to invite all my neighbours round for an enormous feast, kill them all and then take their land.RIP Rocker And Legend. 1974 - 2008. Friend And Karaoke King.
