So many excellent points in this piece by Mirah Riben.
There is no “informed consent” in adoption, compared to abortion. And certainly no waiting (or, “cooling off”) period so the woman can change her mind. Because the Adoption Industry doesn’t want any woman to decide to instead keep her child – that’s bad for business. If anything, the period of time when she can sign relinquishment is narrowing, forcing her to rush this forever life-altering choice. (paraphrased)
My own blog posts that touch on this as well:
Thank you, Mirah, for your advocacy.
