Have to Be Planned?
Many of us have had our infant sons and daughters taken for use
in adoption. One of the rationalizations given by those in favor
of taking our babies is that our pregancy was "unplanned".

regardless of whether she "planned" her pregnancy, she
will not be subjected to societal pressures to make her baby available
for infertile people to adopt. Yet if she is single, she may be
"shamed" - literally terrorized - to make her feel worthless
and get her baby. "Unplanned" pregnancy (single pregnancy)
does not mean an unwanted child. By the time she goes through nine
months of pregnancy and gives birth, the single pregnant woman is
the mother of her baby. She needs her baby and most definitely her
baby needs her.
