I’ve noticed that you yell “ADOPTION” at every abortion argument you get, let me tell you what happens to a child in the foster care system in the very likely event they aren’t adopted as a baby: being moved from home to home against your will, being tossed out to your own devices at 18, sometimes 16; I you’re lucky, you’re adopted but you’ll always know that your mother didn’t want you and you’ll never feel like you belong, you may even be made fun of over it, is that a life anyone deserves?

First, I must assume you are a child who has yet to leave the nest. For if you had, you would know that there is life after childhood. Childhood only represents about one fifth of our lives. To advocate for the killing of prenatal children because they might not get adopted and they might not have a good foster care experience and they might be ‘tossed out’ unprepared and they might not feel a sense of belonging and they might be made fun of is a sad commentary on your outlook on life.

We cannot predict the future. Pessimism is no reason to kill anyone. And who are you to decide what life someone deserves? Life is what we make of it. Maybe if people like you would stop believing that there are good reasons to kill others, life wouldn’t be so hard. Maybe if all of us embraced a culture of life where every individual is valued and protected beginning at conception, the unfortunate things you are so afraid of would fade away.
