So I just read a tearjerker story (in a very liberal publication: The New Yorker) about a woman who grew up without a mother because her mother decided to perform a self-induced abortion. So, obviously, this woman thinks that legal abortions are necessary to prevent women from attempting self-induced abortions and dying in the process.What I don't understand is, why doesn't anyone ever asks the most obvious question? Why not put the child up for adoption? In that scenario, the mother would still be alive. Her daughter may someday be reunited with her adopted sibling. Why should the termination of life be the go to solution?
