Your "truth" is far less truthful than you proclaim.
Pregnancy doesn't just involve a fetus getting womb and board in a woman's womb. Pregnancy involves exposes the woman to a host of physical, mental and financial risks, including death. Yes women still die in childbirth. Adverse consequences of a pregnancy can play out long after the woman gives birth. Setting that aside your understanding of the abortion v. adoption issue is at least a generation behind the time.
The days when an unwed mother could unilaterally have her child put up for adoption are over. The law recognizes that fathers also have rights to the child, and those rights are superior to the rights of a couple seeking to adopt the child until the court rules otherwise. A father asserting those rights can derail an adoption. If the adoption doesn't go through then the mother's obligations to the child remain.
Medical science is becoming more advanced at identifying early in childhood potential issues which can affect a child's development. Potential adoptive parents are becoming more aware of the problems raising children with these issues. So there is the potential that even if Dad is OK with the adoption the child might not be adopted and mother's obligations to the child remain.
Adopted children are increasingly making efforts to locate their "birth parents" whether out of curiosity or for other reasons. with the advent of DNA services it is becoming easier for these children to be able to track down their birth parents even if the court won't open up adoption records.
So quit with this de minimis nonsense. Forcing a woman to carry a fetus to term and give birth is a big imposition. The availability of adoption isn't a guarantee the mother won't be under an obligation to rear or support the child after birth.
