On Loving Couples & Abortion

I have heard abor­tion lob­bied against with the argu­ment that there are many lov­ing cou­ples in the world who would love to adopt the babies rather than see­ing them abort­ed. In oth­er words, abor­tion is wrong because some­body some­where wants the children.

But if that’s true, then why, oh why, are orphan­ages show­ing no lack of chil­dren of all ages?

Where are all the “lov­ing cou­ples” at? Do the chil­dren have to be threat­ened with death before some­one will step up to save them? Is the “love” of these “lov­ing cou­ples” noth­ing more than obligation?

What gives?

(No, I am not pro abor­tion or even pro choice; I’m adamant­ly opposed to abor­tion. On the oth­er hand, I’m also opposed to using ter­ri­ble argu­ments which cause more harm than good.)
