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.)
