Just wondering if any polling has ever been done (in the US, or elsewhere) on adults who were given up for adoption as babies. I am wondering if their views on abortion are statistically similar to a random sample from the same population they have come from.
Well, since no one else has answered yet, I’ll give a personal answer.
My father was adapted, and I am pro-life for that very reason. I believe that for most people who get abortions it would be a better idea to have the kid, and just put him/her up for adaption.
So, at least for me, I am one generation removed from the adaption event, and it does influence my beliefs.
Can’t speak from experience but as a hypothetical I don’t think it would change my pro-choice position. Emphasis on “choice” and not pro-“abortion”.
While I would be grateful my biological mother made the “choice” to put me up for adoption, I would not have ever wanted to take that “choice” away from her.
I was adopted. I put my daughter up for adoption. I’ve also had an abortion.
What does it all mean?
