Pregnant girls considering adoption face “disapproval”

An article explains that few teens choose adoption because they are pressured not to. There is “disapproval” of the adoption choice.

“Despite almost universal verbal disapproval, some girls had in fact considered adoption, but the resultant community and familial pressures against it were so pervasive that they were unable to carry through with their plans.”
