After the birth, give the child to a loving family.

What if it's a black child, or unhealthy or deformed? I know that in your happy little fantasyland there are fantastic parents lined up to adopt little black crack babies, but in the actual world the oppposite is true. The instances of people adopting less-than-perfect children are so rare they make documentaries about them.

Forever, every anniversary of both the abortion and the projected due-date, an extremely deep-seated sense of guilt for "Killing you baby" will haunt the mother. Giving up your baby for adoption will produce far less guilt.

I think that you are completely out of touch with reality. None of my friends that have had abortions (and all of my friends that I know who have had abortions now have children, so these are not just child-haters like me) feel guilt like that. And I have two friends who gave children up for adoption, one of which was murdered in a foster home and the other who was never adopted and spent her entire life shuffled through the system. Your ignorance is stunning, and I don't say that lightly.
