Morning-after pill causes debate

Adoption should be considered as an alternative

My one issue in this whole debate is the “either/or” people when it comes to unplanned pregnancy — either you keep it or you kill it [“Debate over morning-after pill for 15-year-olds,” seattletimes.com, May 4].

As one of the many thousands of parents hoping to adopt in the United States, why is adoption never brought up in discussion as a good option for unplanned, unwanted American babies?

There are so many waiting couples and families to whom these unwanted babies could be the biggest blessing. I am not saying this is the option for everyone, but I wish it would at least be an option that is looked at seriously before ending babies’ lives.

Anna Hiatt, Brier
