By LDS family services (Backed by President Hinckley), “When the probability of a successful marriage is unlikely, unwed parents should be encouraged to place the child for adoption, preferably through LDS [Family] Services” (“Policies and Announcements,” Ensign, Apr. 1999, 80 &President Gordon B. Hinckley, “Save the Children,” Ensign, Nov. 1994, 53). Check it out for yourself. It is funny the verbiage has been change in the past year. check it out.
What do you think about this? For a church to tell a woman that she made a horrible mistake and you are not fit to take care of your child. People make mistakes and God knows that, but he never tells us to just run away from our responsibilities. At least not the God I worship and know. This decision should not have anything to do with the church; it should be up to the Woman. If the church wants to help, they should do what a church family is suppose to do, and help that woman in every way to take care for that child herself.
