Real Reasons For GOP's Anti-Choice Stance: Adoption is Big Business

1.) Adoption is big business in America. Churches, in particular, essentially sell babies, legally.
Most of these babies are taken from their mothers under semi-coercive circumstances. Then, they are prohibited from maintaining a relationship with their children, as the children are with them.
2.) Unwanted children often do not receive the kinds of support from their parent. They almost never get to go to college, statistically. In fact, many unwanted children are killed. Globally, millions of nonmarital children are killed each year. This means that those who do survive to adulthood do not have a support network. They end up doing whatever they can to survive. This increases crime (previously, the GOPs main issue, now falling)
3.) Pretending that the GOP is 'pro-life' diverts attention from their anti-family, anti-job, anti-security policies..
4.) Unwanted children are more likely to 'Join the Army' thinking that they will receive money for college (less than 20% ever do, though)
