Pregnancy and Adoption Agencies
There is a large market for babies in America - a market for healthy
American babies for adoption. Many so-called "pro-life"
organizations like to refer to pregnancy as a "crisis".
The babies of single parents are said to be "unwanted"
babies. Adopted persons may already feel abandoned and hearing the
words "crisis pregnancy" or "unwanted babies"
is rubbing salt in their wounds. People who were adopted at birth
should take heart - their mother may very well have insisted that
her baby is NOT a crisis, even as others sought to separate them.
Where adoption statistics are concerned, the label "unwanted"
is used based on the marital state of the mother - and has nothing
to do with whether the baby is wanted by her family. The truth is
that by the time they have gone through nine months of pregnancy
and given birth, most moms truly want their sons and daughters and
find it heartbreaking to lose them.
Is this any way for people to respect human life? By calling human
beings "unwanted" and a "crisis"? By misleading
parents and grandparents and separating mothers and babies at birth,
traumatizing them both?
Rather than "Crisis Pregnancy Centers", I recommend we
go to "Pregnancy Centers" and treat this very natural
life event of pregnancy a little more respectfully.
