  • I really don't think so, I can't imagine any circumstances under which I would, especially having kids now. I had a pregnancy scare in university, and even then I knew I wouldn't have given it up (false alarm thank goodness). But I also knew that I had (have) a really supportive family who would have been behind me with love and help and all the support I'd have needed. So it would have been a lot easier for me to keep a baby than some other people.

  • Personally I don't think I could. I just found out I'm expecting (unplanned) and I've been exploring options. I am already attached and don't think I could carry a baby for 9 months and then give it away but that is just me. I think I could understand why others would though. It may be in the best interest of the child or someone may do it to help someone else who may want children but can't

  • If someone wants kids that can't have them, there are plenty of children in the US needing families and love, they should try the foster homes first, I think people who want to give their kids up for adoption should have to raise them for at least 5 months before the are given to an agency or a foster home, put some of the pressure back on the parents, so they can at least have a chance themselves.

  • I don't know that I could, but I also can't say how I would feel if the pregnancy as the result of a rape or something else traumatic.

  • if it was to give a child a better life, I would . I know several people who have given up their babies at birth for adoptions and they did it out of love for the child. .For the love of the childs future. I admire people who can do this.
