I also learned a lot about what Plan B and abortion do to you and your baby's body. It is important to know all the facts of Plan B and exactly what it does before you decide to take it. Many people make it seem like a miracle pill that simply prevents fertilization but it is much more complicated than that. While the initial purpose of Plan B is to prevent an egg from being fertilized by sperm, it also interferes with an egg that has already been fertilized and will stop it from implanting in your uterus. This can cause an ectopic pregnancy which can be life-threatening and even fatal. Each time you take Plan B your fertility is also decreased more and more, and the same goes for abortions. Plan B and abortion is not only threatening your child's life but also yours and any future children you may wish to have.
I was also never taught about the option of adoption. While Planned Parenthood was allowed to come into our classrooms and tell us about all of their services and options, not once did an adoption agency ever even hand out flyers about the possibility of putting your child up for adoption in the case of an unwanted pregnancy. Since I was never educated about what adoption is really like, I always thought the worst of it. I assumed that maybe there was just too many babies and they didn't want anymore and that if someone were to put their child up for adoption it would just get sent to an evil orphanage. I thought that “unwanted babies” would have horrible lives if they were born because that is what I was taught. The truth is, there are millions of families who cannot conceive their own child and who would love any baby that they are given. Adoption agencies in the United States have two-year waiting lists; this shows that people are willing to wait years to get a baby who they will love more than anything in the world, and if more people chose adoption rather than abortion then maybe those waiting lists wouldn't be as long. We need to start educating our youth about the positive solution of adoption, rather than providing murder as an easy way out.
