as compared to suggestion (in the context of adoption)? Webster's defines it as "using force or intimidation to obtain compliance". I am really trying to understand what some posters are trying to say. Can we please have this conversation without it turning into an argument? This is an opportunity help some of us understand what you are saying. Thanks!

Webster's defines intimidation as: 1. to make timid; fill with fear. 2. to overawe or cow, as through the force of personality or by superior display of wealth, talent, etc. 3. to force into or deter from some action by inducing fear: to intimidate a voter into staying away from the polls.
I believe what some are saying, in the context of infant adoption, is that expectant mothers are vulnerable, and sometimes feeling a sense of helplessness about being able to raise a child for whatever reasons (are their own) and they feel the only hope for their child (ruling out abortion) is adoption.
