There is a lot of talk about coercion on here and how agencies/aparents influence pbmom's to place their children when that is not what they WANT.
Yet, there is a post going right now where a woman (right in the title) says that she WANTS to place her child for adoption and she is getting bullied not to consider it.
She is being told she is irresponsible, running from a decision, equate adoption with “getting rid of”, will damage the relationship with her extended family, how that her feelings must not be valid because she is pg, that she can never get past relinquishing, that all 3 of her kids will be angry and resentful to her, it will tear her family apart, scared into thinking there could be abuse, how her other kids will see themselves as a burden, ruin her marriage, etc.
This looks like textbook coercion to me.... threats to a family member, dismissal of her own emotions and feelings....is this coercion?
