Honestly though if you're pro-life then yes, please look into adoption. Give children whose parents are either no longer around or were unable to be cared for a family. I've always held a disdain for pro-lifers who will campaign to Hell and back to stop abortion, but when given an opportunity to help struggling children or families they're suddenly like "nah, once it's no longer a fetus I no longer give a fuck."

While I want them adopted into loving homes regardless, there is a big difference between adopting an infant vs a child. Beyond matters of preference, the latter is likely to be more difficult and has a greater chance of not "fitting in" with the adoptive family.

This article is surreal to me however. It's like dunking on people feeding the homeless by asking why they aren't feeding starving people in Africa. Kudos to those willing to adopt, double kudos to those willing to adopt older children and teens.
