Ohio RTL president: Make it easier to adopt

We have made a significant impact, abortion clinics are closing… in our evolution, we believe the next step is adoption…. More adoptions will lead to less abortions. More women will see opportunities to have their child and keep their child or place their child for adoption…. We’ve adopted two children, domestically and internationally, and what […]

Ronan Farrow proud of growing up with special needs siblings

I am so proud of my family. I grew up across the table from Moses, who has cerebral palsy, and next to my sister Quincy, born of a drug-addicted inner-city mother, and Minh, who is blind. I could never have understood what it means to grow up blind or with cerebral palsy. I saw problems […]

Pro-life video based on singer’s adopted child’s experience

How often do we see the entertainment culture take a stand against abortion — especially one as powerful as John Elefante’s “This Time”? The former lead singer of Kansas offers an incredibly personal missive based on the story of his own adopted daughter in order to bring attention to Online for Life, which works to […]

What not to say about adoption

DecisionslogoGuest post by Susie Allen, Pro-Life in TN

Statistics tell us that 50-55% of teens experiencing unplanned pregnancies choose single parenting, 30-35% choose abortion, and less than 1% choose to place their children for adoption.

These statistics are disturbing. What if we could reverse the statistics of abortion and adoption? With two million couples waiting to adopt, why doesn’t adoption seem to be an option on the radar screen of parents experiencing unplanned pregnancies?

One reason appears to be that even in well-written articles, adoption is framed in outdated and negative language. Even some professionals  who deal with teens have an inaccurate view of adoption, perpetuated by made-for-TV movies showing adoption as it was in the 1970’s. Today, options aren’t so limited, with open, semi-open, and confidential adoptions.

UK may force Catholic adoption agency out over marriage requirement

The charity regulator in Scotland has upheld a ruling that would force a Roman Catholic adoption agency to end its policy that requires prospective adoptive parents to be married for at least two years….

$10,000 offered to surrogate to abort her baby

“They were both visibly upset. The mother was crying,” she remembers. “They said they didn’t want to bring a baby into the world only for that child to suffer. … They said I should try to be God-like and have mercy on the child and let her go.” “I told them that they had chosen […]

Abortion proponent Ashley Judd: “Making our own babies” is “selfish”

I figured it was selfish for us to pour our resources into making our “own” babies when those very resources and energy could not only help children already here, but through advocacy and service transform the world into a place where no child ever needs to be born into poverty and abuse again…. My belief […]
