I totally agree. If its a case of either the baby and the mother die, or the baby dies, I would say its okay to save the mother from potentially losing her life. Also, for a rape victim, its completely unfair for a woman to live for 9+ months with a constant reminder of that traumatic event.
In almost all other circumstances, adoption is absolutely a 100% better option. There is no reason why any child would be unwanted. There are millions of couples who are in emotional agony because they cannot have children. If this life which you have created can give joy to one other human being, why deny them that? If you can't provide for your child, there's no shame in that. Arrange for an adoption. The potential for every human being is immeasurable. Even a child with severe disabilities can bring someone joy.
