Pro-choicers call adoption “cruel”

Adoption is often portrayed negatively in pro-choice literature. Pro-choice advocates Carole Anderson and Lee Campbell say of adoption,

“The unnecessary separation of mothers and children is a cruel, but regrettably usual, punishment that can last a lifetime.”

Cited by Charmaine Yoest, “Why Is Adoption So Difficult?” Focus on the Family Citizen, 17 December 1990, 10. Quoted by Randy Alcorn.

If adoption is “cruel”and a “punishment” then what is abortion? Abortion result of the tearing apart of an unborn baby like the one below. The picture underneath is that of a child aborted at the same age. We can see clearly that abortion is in fact cruel punishment, not adoption which gives the baby is chance at life and a childless couple or individual a chance to fulfill their dream of becoming parents.

    A classic case of twisting someone’s words. They weren’t talking about “adoption”, per se, but the fact that some children have to be taken from their parents for reasons spanning from drug abuse or even physical abuse.
    Let me translate:
    “The unnecessary separation of mothers and children is a cruel, but regrettably usual, punishment that can last a lifetime.”
    Means…
    “It totally sucks when a kid can’t stay with their parents, and it can affect them in the long run.”
    Did they say “ugh, adoption is totally bull”. No.
    They simply said it was sad when a kid has to be taken from their birth parents.
