Mark Stewart on Families & Children

 

 


Encourage adoption and surrogate pregnancies

Q: You suggest that abortion can be reduced by encouraging adoption and surrogate pregnancies?

A: Women can make good money as baby-carriers for Americans who otherwise are spending huge sums dealing with Chinese and Russian adoption bureaucracies. There is nothing immoral about carrying life for another; it IS immoral to snuff out that life for your own convenience.

Yes, this "burdens" women and not men. Eliminating an extra burden on some does not balance snuffing out innocent babies. Women feeling burdened could instead take the upside: only you can deliver that soon-to-be-happy, healthy baby to parents who will be forever grateful. Your temporary burden is making a better world.

Varying state criminality codes is what our Framers envisioned. A president cannot alter Supreme Court rulings. But he can say from the "bully pulpit" that abortion is wrong, and implore women to carry babies to term and give them to couples who are willing and able to care for these newborns.
