Do you think abortion is preferable over adoption. I ask because I have ran into birthmothers who have claimed they would abort if they could go back. How do you feel? Are you fine with not aborting or would you go back?

No comment on what is preferable it is each woman's personal choice.I chose not to abort even though it meant loosing my child a different way.Though adoption was not a good choice for me I would not change my adopt vs.abort decision.Though except for a brief second at the start of the preg. it wasn't a part of my process.I am pro-choice it is each woman's personal decision.

No, I do not feel that abortion is preferable to adoption. No, I don't wish I'd aborted my beloved son. I do think that parenting is better than adoption or abortion and I think many birth mothers wished that they had parented. I've never met a mother that wishes she'd aborted rather than relinquished, not saying they don't exist just that I've never met one, but I have met some that have done both and say the pain of and regret of relinquishing is worse. Obviously that wouldn't be true for the adoptee who would be dead. I think many of us get tired of adoption being presented as the alternative to abortion, and think that the alternative should be parenting and family preservation.
