    So don't give me that bull.
    13 percent of women who seek abortions are concerned about the health of the fetus.

    Black women had 35.4 percent of US abortions in 2010.
    When it comes to matters of reproduce health, Politicians and the religious dogma of another faith should never interfere with religious liberty of an individual or her faith.

    I fully agree. That is why it is so unforgivable that there are Parents that want to adopt and are not allowed to.

    So that means we have over 50% non-Black healthy little humans the girls get killed instead of adopted.

    What about the 12 percent who were aborted for maternal health reasons?

    Why are they not allowed to? And I dont think we were discussing abortion...I certainly never implied such altho the age criteria is a bit silly.

    My family and myself thru my church have been very involved in the foster care system since the '70s. I'm aware of many of the realities.

    Didn't you say 35 and 12? And besides, you should not probably write off the Black children like you do. I am pretty sure that a good many of them would find adoption too, if we were set up more for adoption than abortion. Why, I have at least read of kids adopted in spite of handicaps.

    If you say it works okay, I will believe you. I do not understand why there are about 400.000 children not adopted in the US with Americans looking to other countries for children, but that is okay too.

    Most of the kids in foster care are not available for adoption, the rights of the parents have not been terminated and/or the parents have not given up their rights to the children. Many are in foster care because of abuse, poverty, drug-addicted or alcoholic parents, parent in jail, neglect, etc.
