I just saw some posts where a birth mom tore an AP a new one. Another birth mom said that she was in the "anger phase" of her grief. Do all birth moms go through a time of hostility toward APs?

I have seen, even in this section, posters who have presented information as fact. Even cited where to find those "facts." So I looked at some. Sure it was written. But then when you find out who was behind the so called study, look at how it was actually done....not so factual or ethical. Doesn't mean you can't give out that information still. I do not appreciate scare tactics in either direction. Scaring a woman with not so factual "facts" is unnecessary. And whose agenda does it really serve? It may make you feel better to give out "facts" but ultimately the woman and child live with the consequences of any decisions made. In any decision a woman faces: moving, jobs, educational opportunities, staying at home vs. working, parenting, family planning....everyone thinks their two cents is worth more than the woman who is actually having to make a choice.
