In general, adoption professionals avoid expressing an opinion about abortion or Roe v. Wade because banning or limiting abortion seems self-serving in that it would obviously make more babies available for adoption. In this Blog, we at Adoption Attorneys Kirsh & Kirsh, P.C. (“Kirsh & Kirsh”) are not advocating for the overturning of Roe v. Wade by the United States Supreme Court but simply stating statistical facts. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) reported that approximately 625,000 women have abortions each year. According to the National Council for Adoption Factbook, there were just over 18,000 unrelated, domestic adoptions of newborns a year. If 10% of those women who had abortions gave their babies up for adoption, or more correctly, made adoption plans for their babies, the number of unrelated domestic adoptions would have INCREASED by 62,500 per year – 350%.
If the United States Supreme Court determines that the United States Constitution does not include the right to have an abortion, some states will impose substantial restrictions or limitations on the availability of abortion. In those states, the number of babies available for adoption will increase. However, it is NOT the obligation of pregnant women considering abortion to put up their babies for adoption. A woman facing an unplanned or untimely pregnancy undoubtedly faces the most difficult, gut-wrenching decision one could imagine. Ultimately, she will have to determine what is in her best interests. A woman, who believes that life begins at conception, will also take into consideration the best interests of her unborn child.

POSITIVE ADOPTION LANGUAGE DISCLAIMER: Please understand that these blog posts are written in a way to use language that people use when searching for help with their adoption plans. Unfortunately, while all of us understand what positive adoption language means, most expectant moms that come to us at first do not understand what that means. The most common search term on the Internet for expectant moms is “how do I give up my baby for adoption”. If we do not include those words in our blog posts, and instead put “how do I create an adoption plan for my baby” then our website will not show up in most expectant moms’ search results on Google.
