Except that when I popped out they decided at the last minute that they really wanted a girl. So my parents, who were on a waiting list, got a call in the middle of the night asking: "We have an unexpected baby boy; do you want him?" They said: "Of course." My biological mother later found out that my mother had never graduated from college and that my father had never graduated from high school. She refused to sign the final adoption papers. She only relented a few months later when my parents promised that I would someday go to college.”
Jobs’ biological parents were Joanne Simpson and Abdulfattah John Jandali.
At the time, however, Joanne’s parents would not allow the two to get married. For that reason, Jobs was given up for adoption to his parents Paul and Clara Jobs.
Eighteen years later saw the Roe v. Wade Supreme Court decision, which paved the way for hundreds of millions of legal abortions to take place in the United States over the following years. In 1955, abortion was nowhere near as prevalent as it is today. It was primarily rejected by society as the termination of innocent life.
Instead, adoptions were preferred. Adoptions ensure that children are given life. Jobs’ adoption was very beneficial, creating and shaping him into the leader that he would later become.
What would a world look like in which Steve Jobs had been aborted?
Out of the 52 million abortions in the US in the past 38 years, how many other Jobs’s have we extinguished?
