For those that are pro-life.

I was just wondering what you think should be done with all the children that would be around if abortions where eventually stopped. Should we put them in the foster care system that is already overloaded with children that didn't have acceptable lives in the first place? Or should we put them in the care of adoption agencies and their be no guarantee what will happen to them? What should we do with them?

  • Why don't you put yourself in the babies shoes.
    You think you would have been better off killed in the womb?

  • There are many people in the world trying to adopt a baby! If these women dont want to have a baby then they should not have sex, or at least take the steps to prevent getting pregnant! Far to many people use abortion as a form of birthcontrol.

    I work in a doctors office, and one of the doctors was unable to have children of her own and was trying to adopt a baby for 3 years. she recently was able to adopt. Instead of killing babies, why not allow them to be with a loving family who can not have children of their own.

  • This is obviously a question made by someone trying to start a fight. I'm not going there. Several countries have mandatory steralization after a certain number of abortions. I agree with this. If you're so dumb to get pregnant over and over and over and kill them all as a form of birth control your God given rights should be taken away. Better birth control access would make sense. Allowing teenagers to buy birth control without parental consent only makes sense. What to do with those children? Not get pregnant because you're an idiot in the first place.

  • Ok, what about the hundreds of thousands of children that are abused and neglected everyday in the foster care system? They could use a loving, caring family too. But they are told no because they aren't a baby. What about them? Should they be forgotten because people don't want an older child?

  • No we should feel bad for speaking up for the innocent kids killed everyday.
    Puh-leeze you should feel bad for supporting people who kill babies instead of getting on birth control.

  • And like always they never answer the question. Yes, mrsmamaj, there are people willing to adopt a HEALTHY BABY of a certain race and gender. What about all the unhealthy babies and children that are already here waiting to be adopted? That is the point of the question. That couple could have adopted a child long before three years but they were picky so let's not make them out to be saints. The wanted something specific much like other parents that want to adopt.

  • Mo, she was asking what you think should be done with all the children....not what your stance is.  Have you ever thought beyond your stance and even considered where all those children would go?

  • I never said I was against birth control, but you know as well as I do that birth control isn't 100% effective.

  • mrsmamaj, if you think that there are people out their to adopt every baby that has died via abortion you are very naive.

  • You don't have a clue at all. You disgust me with your "Rights" you have no right to decide if a child can live or not you are a nobody.
