Several blog entries here at the Gazette have been directed toward the abortion issue. One conservative blogger here often brings up the number of abortions as being a major liberal accomplishment which causes an obvious liberal to comment asking how many unwanted children have been adopted by those that are against abortion.
The liberals question is quite valid from a pratical standpoint. A quick Google search showed that for the last year that reports are available, there were 129,000 adoptions, with 133,000 children waiting to be adopted in the USA. In that same year, there were over 1,000,000,000 abortions.
Since there are already 100,000 kids waiting to be adopted, and this includes children in foster homes not newborns, how would society deal with 10 times the number of unwanted children if abortion became illegal as advocated by some?
