From my friend’s popular anti-“crisis pregnancy center” website:
Adoption can be a positive choice for women and couples facing unplanned pregnancies. Depending on the kind of adoption, you may have ways to remain in contact with your child as she/he grows up. “Open adoptions” can be very empowering for women; in an ideal situation you may be able to choose the adoptive family, and you can usually remain in contact with the adoptive family as your child grows up. [. . .]
It’s important to note that there are many, many women who have given children up for adoption, and a woman who was well-informed about her decision will ultimately have a hugely more positive experience with the process than a woman who was coerced into the decision or left in the dark about the details.
Pro-choice activists encourage women to choose adoption, if it’s right for them. But we don’t pretend it’s their only choice. We’re in the business of helping people, not validating dying social norms.
