Choosing Adoption is a Heroic Act

adoption

The recent NY law regarding Abortion has generated a lot of discussion, which is good. We should never stop discussing this topic as it is one that encompasses not only political ideology but one of faith and one’s foundation of life. One approach, especially to women that are considering abortion due to their economic situation, or that they do not want to be a mother or that it is not a good time for them or whatever their individual situation may be, is a simple question. “If an adoptive family can be found and ALL of your medical costs during the 9 month pregnancy would be paid for, would you allow your baby to live?” We need to change the narrative as a society. If a woman chooses to give a baby up for Adoption instead of choosing Abortion that woman has then allowed a creation of GOD to experience life and also they have allowed that baby to Bless not only the adoptive family but all those people who that baby will ever come in contact with. A woman who chooses adoption and not abortion is a hero. On top of that, many states have open adoption so if the birth mother wants to be a part of that child’s life she can be. I imagine we can get both Democrats and Republicans to agree to make sure ALL health costs are paid for during pregnancy if a woman chooses adoption and not abortion. We need to change the conversation because it is a heroic choice to allow a baby to be adopted instead of aborted. If we can change the narrative maybe we can change hearts. It would be nice one day for a state legislature to cheer for the heroic choice a woman makes and for buildings to be lit up for the choice of life instead of the darkness of death. Never stop discussing and never stop praying.
