So recently found out I was pregnant and immediately knew I would be giving the child up for adoption. I've received a lot of backlash from friends and family calling me lazy, etc. I'm wondering what YOUR opinion on the matter is? Please note that whatever you say will not change my mind... it's just interesting to hear what people think of these kinds of situations...

I think women who don't want children should invest in birth control and condoms - and stop potentially ruining their own child's life. Are you aware of how many adopted children go through abuse and other sick crap. There is a recent case of a couple in Kansas who are accused of abusing 7 adopted kids.
I have read countless stories and personally knew adopted kids who went through hell with their adoption parents. I find it to be so irresponsible, with all we have nowadays, there is no reason someone should be having a surprise pregnancy when they never intended to have a child. Whatever you do with your child is your choice... but please consider this in the future:
1. Condoms, 2. Diaphragms, 3. Birth Control Pills, 4. Birth Control Patch, 5. Intrauterine Devices (though they are costly), 6. Emergency Contraception Pills
THESE ARE YOUR BEST FRIENDS... USE THEM.0

I would too, in your situation. Better than: 1. aborting the baby, and 2. trying to raise a child when you don't feel like a wholesome adult yourself.
There is nothing worse for a child than:
1. to be killed without even having a chance
2. for its presence to be hated by the mother (yes, it can know through the womb if it's not welcomed), and to be raised by a bad parent. cause that is how you create a serial killer or serial rapist. By not loving your kid and not raising it properly. So I would rather give it up if I know I'm not gonna be abe to give it the best life it could get. I don't want to ruin any child.0
