Every time I watch this video, I am literally blown away! It is amazing to see how many influential people were adopted and were given the amazing gift of life and an upbringing which their parents would have struggled to give!
However, if you then look at the New Zealand statistics for adoption, you will see that since the mid 1960’s there has been a steady decline in the numbers of adoptions per year.
Now it is under 100 per year. (Stats from here )
With over 17,500 abortions taking place every year in NZ, the trend for abortions looks almost the reverse of that graph.
Adoption might not be the answer to abortion, but it definitely is an option, which people need to be fully informed about. Something which the Adoption Option Trust is doing a great job about!
