I’m so tired of seeing adoptees’ stories co-opted as an “adoption, not

They are ours, and for many of us, they’ve been difficult and even
painful to share. Leave adoptees alone.

You have no idea what our situation is and it is wrong to impose views on us (“how would adopted children feel if they were aborted”) or co-opt our stories for your purposes. It makes me highly skeptical that “pro-life” people are really all that concerned with life when they constantly treat OUR lives with disrespect.
