My very first stamp. Of course, it had
to be a controversial one.
Whenever I come across the abortion debate, I notice that pro-lifers tend to point to adoption as the “end all, be all” solution to unwanted pregnancies, and I can’t help but think, “And how many children have you
adopted?” There are thousands of children in this country alone waiting to be, not knowing what it’s like to have a home or a family, feeling unloved and rejected. These children are draining money from society. Society cannot
afford them. And yet many pro-lifers want to chuck in more
, making the burden even worse, just because abortion is against their morals.
The simple truth of the matter is, adoption is not some “miracle cure” for abortions. It’s not a solution, and it’s not a prevention. When you preach “adoption only,” not only are you saying you want to force a woman to carry a pregnancy full-term - as well as deal with the pain of childbirth - just because you
prefer that over abortion, you are also saying you want to force society to pay for an unwanted child. You may be fine and dandy with paying for a gazillion unwanted children, but I - and many other people - aren’t. And society doesn't operate based on what you
Bottom line: Adoption is a choice, just like abortion is. It's either pro-choice or no choice.
EDIT: Remember, this is my very first stamp. I'm new at this stamp-making thing, so I apologize that it's not all snazzy. XD
