Abortion and Adoption

Abortion – Increase government funding for adoption programmes, make sure all women considering abortion for non-medical reasons are offered the alternative of adoption. -  No-one is in favour of abortion and I would like to reduce the number of abortions to those which are unavoidable due to medical risks to the mother’s life. However it would be wrong to do this by banning abortion as this would lead to many teenagers and women dying in back-street abortions, as they did before abortion was legalised. The best way to reduce abortions would be to increase government funding for adoption agencies and charities in order to give as many women as possible the option of having a baby they can’t support adopted by loving parents rather than aborted.
