The Pro-Abortion Absolutists Intolerance Of Adoption

In an article highlighted over at feministing we gain valuable insight into their mindset about abortion. They state with no uncertain terms that abortion is the only option for a woman with an unwanted pregnancy.
"Sociologist Rickie Solinger in her book Wake Up Little Susie, describes what it was like to have an unwanted pregnancy in 1962. The woman might be “futilely appealing to a hospital abortion committee; being diagnosed as neurotic, even psychotic by a mental health professional; expelled from school (by law until 1972); unemployed; in a Salvation Army or some other maternity home; poor, alone, ashamed, threatened by the law.” There was also an acute social stigma attached to an unwed mother with an illegitimate child; maternity homes were frequently frightening and far away. All counseled adoption. The only alternatives were a shotgun wedding or an illegal abortion.

According to a 1958 Kinsey study, illegal abortion was the option chosen by 80 percent of single women with unwanted pregnancies. Statistics on illegal abortion are notoriously unreliable, but the Guttmacher Institute, a respected international organization dedicated to sexual and reproductive health, estimates that during the pre-Roe vs. Wade years there were up to one million illegal abortions performed in the United States each year. Illegal and often unsafe. In 1965, they count almost two hundred known deaths from illegal abortions, but the actual number was, they estimate, much higher, since the majority went unreported..."
At least it is acknowledged that adoption was counseled, even though it is summarily dismissed as abortion is affirmed as the only real option, the only "choice" pro-abortion absolutists will tolerate. Somehow it is better to kill the unborn boy and girl than to adopt it to a family that wants to love the child. This fits perfectly well with what we see among Liberals as they argue that abortion: is a blessing, a gift from God, more natural than pregnancy itself, and even sacred work. Truly evil has become good and good has become evil as Liberalism assaults Christianity and the Christian call to take care of the orphan.

"Woe to those who call evil good
and good evil,
who put darkness for light
and light for darkness,
who put bitter for sweet
and sweet for bitter." Isaiah 5:20
