Pro-choicer: Adoption is barbaric, abortion is moral

“[I] feel abhorrence for the idea of deliberately bringing an unwanted pregnancy to term, delivering forth a helpless human being, and then just giving it away to others to care for. To never again take any responsibility whatsoever for a baby deliberately brought into this world seems to me utterly barbaric!

By contrast, abortion is absolutely moral and responsible. To stop the pregnancy and prevent the birth of a child who cannot be properly cared for shows wisdom – an understanding of the realities of life.”

Constance Robertson, “The Religious Case for Abortion” in David L Bender and Bruno Leone Abortion: Opposing Viewpoints (San Diego, CA: Greenhaven Press, 1991)

Is adoption barbaric? or is abortion (shown below, on a ten week old human) barbaric?


is this “moral” and “responsible?”
