OA&FS Statement Regarding Supreme Court Decision to Overturn Roe v. Wade
Because pregnant people’s options are now more limited due to the overturning of Roe v. Wade, access to unbiased all-options pregnancy counseling is critical. Providing this service is central to OA&FS’ mission. We will continue assisting people in making informed decisions about their pregnancy and accessing the resources they need for whichever pregnancy decision they make: abortion, parenting, or adoption.

Open adoption is a way to provide your child with the best life they can have and still be in their life. It dispels these fears of “Oh, my parents didn’t want me and they didn’t love me” because your birthparents are there and you know they love you. They made this decision because they love you. It gives this opportunity to grow as a person and to live a really full, rich life. It’s just amazing.
Open adoptees speak out.
