Voluntary Relinquishment for Adoption, U.S.

s_placefig1.gif

Race Before 1973 1973-1981 1982-1988 1989-1995
All Women 8.7% 4.1% 2% 0.9%
Black 1.5% 0.2% 1.1% near 0
White 19.3% 7.5% 3.2% 1.7%

About 1.4 million children were born to unmarried women in 2003, comprising 34.6 percent of total births (Hamilton, Martin, & Sutton, 2004). If the relinquishment rate measured by NSFG in 1995 for never-married women were applied to all unmarried women who gave birth in 2003, this would mean that fewer than 14,000 children were voluntarily relinquished in 2003.

    Jane..

    Think this graph would be more truthfully entitled.. “Involuntary Relinquishment for Adoption, U.S.”, especially during the Baby Scoop Era in America. Though all manner of coercion is still practiced in America today and not in the numbers from the BSE. I would be included in that 19.3% prior to 1973. If one considers it ‘voluntary’ simply because we were not threatened by execution or being beheaded, there are many ways to covertly pressure a young unmarried mother to ‘involuntarily’ surrender her baby to adoption and make it appear as ‘voluntary’. Just because one signs on the dotted line does not necessarily mean that one was truly signing her name ‘voluntarily’. During the BSE relatively few young unmarried mothers were given any option, other than the option of adoption. Reasonable logic would tell one that millions of mothers across America and thru out the Westernized countries, were not all simply thinking and doing the same thing, at the very same time. Somebody had an agenda and it wasn’t the young unmarried mothers. Millions of young unmarried mothers all ‘deciding’ of their own free will, at the very same time, across the globe, to ‘voluntarily relinquish’ their babies to adoption, I don’t think so.

    Your blog is very good and am glad that I was made aware of your presence.

  2. You are very right. Certainly the sitatuion is now the same in Korea now as is it was in the baby scoop and I would never call it “voluntary.” We must get on the U.S. govt about their wording plus a whole lot more.
