Who Will Adopt Unwanted Babies?

We should all want kids to grow up in happy homes. Unfortunately, there really are a lot of older kids in the foster care system, many of whom are waiting to be adopted. These kids do face serious challenges. On the other hand, when newborns are placed for adoption, they go directly to adoptive families’ homes, generally without even entering the foster care system at all. Gently make sure your conversation partner understands the differences between these two situations.

Person 1: There are already too many kids in the foster system. Do you really want to add more? Person 2 (our hero): I’m concerned about those kids too, but there is actually no shortage of good prospective parents waiting to adopt newborns.Person 1: Pro-lifers are hypocrites who don’t care about people after they’re born. Person 2 (our hero): I’m sorry some pro-lifers have given you reason to distrust us. I agree that our concern for people shouldn’t end at birth.Person 1: I think we should focus on helping the kids who are already alive. Person 2 (our hero): I care a ton about kids after birth, and I agree that we should focus on actual, living people. But biologically speaking, a fetus is already alive.Person 1: Adopted kids have hard lives. Abortion is a kinder option. Person 2 (our hero): I want to alleviate hardships too. Let me ask a question. It might seem irrelevant, but please bear with me. If a two-year-old’s parents die in an accident, should we kill her?
