Everyone is so against abortion but does anyone know how many kids stay in foster care?

Really? What is so wrong with abortion? I don't believe in using it as a method of birth control but if you were using birth control and it still happens i don't understand how someone could give a child away. Does anyone really know how many children go in and out of foster care each year and are waiting for a home? Why add one more? this is just my opinion...honestly i myself couldnt do either but if i HAD to choose i could never place a child in foster care.

  • Abortion is murder--killing an innocent child who has no choice in the matter. At least in foster care, he has a chance at life.

  • why dont you just kill the children in the foster care system take the easy way out abortion is murder you are killing a human life that does not have a "choice" whether it wants to live or not, how would you like to be torn apart limb by limb and then thrown into the garbage

  • MOST babies are given up for adoption. There is a huge difference between adoption and foster care.

  • So basically it is worse to give a child away, and let it live, than to kill it? Abortion is murder. Period.

  • fostercare isn't horrible...please don't think dying is better than living with humans with bonds connections until you find your forever home~

  • Just like every parent isn't going to be a good one - the same goes for foster homes. Its reality. There are s**t parents and s**t foster homes but it doesn't mean that they are the is only slightly slimming.

    Although it isn't very nice to go from home to home - at least, hopefulyl eventually, a child gets to stay with a family that loves them and they are able to hopefully feel loved and feel wanted and feel cared for and establish a beautiful life.

    In my opinion even a s**t life is better than none..because with a s**t one there is ALWAYS room to change it around and make it better. If you are dead you don't get a choice.

  • uh. ...foster care (for most children) IS horrible.

    my ex was in the foster care system for 15 years and had over 20 "homes". Sometimes QUALITY of life is better than just living.
