Abortion rights activists had a meltdown against Christians and Evangelicals on social media after a sign reading “We Will Adopt Your Baby" — apparently held up by a conservative couple outside the Supreme Court — made the rounds on Sunday, June 28.

Protests broke out in front of the SCOTUS in the wake of its conservative majority 6-3 decision to overturn Roe v Wade on Friday, June 24. There were several signs condemning the court's decision, which no longer guarantees abortion access on a federal level and has led to the procedure being banned in several states. However, one of the signs held by an anti-abortion couple has sparked outrage across social media.

As mentioned, a couple in support of the SCOTUS decision on Friday held a sign that read, “We Will Adopt Your Baby.” According to the Daily Dot, the photo was first posted online by Twitter user Noelle Fitchett on Saturday, June 25, calling it, “My favorite sign yesterday.”



 

  During oral arguments for Dobbs v Jackson Women’s Health Organization, the case which led to the overturning of Roe v Wade, one of the points brought up was that women had the option to give up babies for adoption shortly after their birth without punishment under safe haven laws as an alternative to abortion. However, many adoptees spoke out saying they resented being used as "political props" and criticized the phrase “domestic supply of infants” in Justice Samuel Alito’s leaked draft opinion as an indication that adoptees are viewed as a product, not people, per the Daily Dot.

Social media was inundated with criticisms of the anti-abortion sign, with several blue-check accounts chiming in alongside the hashtag #WeWillAdoptYourBaby. "I need the “we will adopt your baby” horror film previews to stop," New York politician Lindsey Boylan tweeted. "We will adopt your baby" bitch we all know this is a poorly disguised attempt to make more evangelicals/Catholics, you aren't fucking sneaky. Stop acting like treating people like livestock is you doing them a favor. Gross," writer Kristin Chirico alleged.

"As an adoptee, seeing a bunch of creepy-looking anti-abortion people say WE WILL ADOPT YOUR BABY is not reassuring. First of all, if you think you are equipped to adopt any child, including say, a 13-year-old in the foster care system—oh wait, that’s not what you meant?" author Elizabeth Spiers wrote.



 



 



 

Other pro-abortionists on Twitter also fumed at the sign, with some calling it "disingenuous" as there are hundreds of thousands of children in the foster care system, waiting to be adopted.

"To all those couples holding up signs that beg you not to abort and we will adopt 'your baby' why don't you ever consider adopting one of the 400K+ children in the foster care system? Plenty of children need a good home why do you need a baby?" one tweeted.

"I hate those signs held by smiling couples saying "we will adopt your baby". In my crisis pregnancy, knowing that people would gladly take the baby away from me but not help me keep it was worse than the pressure to abort," another wrote.

"The "we will adopt your baby" signs are so disingenuous. I *am* a foster mom and can tell you the system is overloaded with more children than it can bear. If you cared you would be doing something NOW, but you just want the glory of "saving kids" with none of the responsibility," a comment read.

"The amount of vaguely creepy-looking white couples holding up signs that say "Don't abort. We will adopt your baby" while more than 400,000 children are languishing in foster care in the United States tells you all you need to know about Evangelical Americans," someone else offered.

"The WORST part about these "Please don't abort, we will adopt your baby" photos is that they are uniformly pictures of couples who will abuse, neglect, and make homeless any children who are LGBTQ, fat, not white, disabled, or who become non-Christian. These are NOT good people," another alleged.
