  1. I think its really Sad that a woman would dump her baby, after having a life grow in you for nine months and you dumb it, why not give it up for adoption. Women should remember that being able to concive is a gift from God, there are alot of women who are not able to have Children and most of these women would try anything just to have a baby. I think it would be nice if these women were a lot more thoughtful about their how these women feel when they hear this!
