Abortion or adoption? Which would be easier for you?

Me, definitely abortion. I could never carry a fetus 9 months, see it on u/s, feel it moving inside me then give birth and give it away. That would be torment. Constantly wondering how it's doing, how it's being treated and everything. Then the guilt that if they ever did find you if they would hate you for your choice. Having an abortion in the first trimester when the reality of the pregnancy hasn't sunk in yet  would be much easier to handle. That's why I hate when pro lifers say " put it up for adoption".

IDK, that it would be easier for me, but it would be right.

The easier choice isn't always the better choice.

Adoption. I see even the fetus as a baby and could never kill it.

Abortion.  I have had one, and I don't regret it.

I can't commit murder, so adoption, especially after seeing friends struggling to conceive.

Adoption isnt as easy as most people say. Fathers have rights in most states. So if you dont want it and he doesnt but he wont give up his rights your stuck with a kid you dont want. Or he could be a rapist druggie or a crappy parent and still get custody. Its hard to get parental right terminated. My ex is a molestor and a pedophile and they still wont terminate his rights. I just read a story where a woman had to let her rapist see her kid or go to jail. Unless adoption laws are reformed id say abortion

Neither would be easy but if those were the only two options I'd go with abortion.

If I had a situation that I felt I could not keep the baby myself (which would not happen) I would do adoption. But I am also going to be a surrogate and carry a baby for someone, which is basically adoption.... so maybe I do not count?
