EWTN Catholic Q&A
Adoption?
Question from sara silver on 12-12-2013:

A good friend of mine recently posed this question to me: how is it moral for people to procreate when there are so many suffering children available for adoption in other countries?Would it not be more ethical to give a child that is already in this world a better home, rather than create a life?

The logical answer to this is that those who love children and procreate children usually are the same couples who adopt children, especially special needs children or those who have been locked into the foster care system for far too long.

Pro-life families truly live their convictions; those who pose arguments like yours rarely do that which costs them sacrificing for the good of others.
