VLOG #1: “Would you Rather Have Been Aborted?” Unpacking This for Parents (CW: rape)


In an effort to make my work more accessible on more platforms to more ages and media preferences, I can be found on YouTube and at my new podcast. My podcast focuses on providing an orated version of new blog posts. And my YouTube vlogs focuses on updating topics I may have already written about and telling the stories about the time in history when I originally wrote on a topic. I hope to post a vlog every Tuesday. I will try my best.

Last week's vlog focused on the question that is frequently posed to adoptees, "Would you rather have been aborted." It was inspired by several posts in The Declassified Adoptee blog archives with this post from 2013 being the most relevant: "Why Conflating Adoption and Abortion Really Isn't Helping Anything."

If you liked this vlog, please comment, "like," and subscribe at YouTube. It really helps me out.
