We at Origins-USA thank The Nation for this thorough and insightful article. It goes a long way in educating the public on what's really going on in many adoption businesses.
Anti-abortion Christian groups, however, are not the only organizations that use trickery to induce vulnerable young women to surrender their babies. I gave up my son in 1990 to a non-religious non-profit that similarly used "counseling" to pressure mothers into adoption. I was strongly dissuaded from any attempt to keep my baby and constantly told to think of adoption surrender as my only real option.
Origins-USA, a non-profit, tax-exempt corporation led by mothers who lost children to adoption, advocates for the natural right of mothers to nurture their children and for keeping families together.
