The absence of abortion in fic bothers me less than the absence of adoption; probably because I've seen at least 2 fics where characters have chosen to abort, but none where they decide to give the child up for adoption. And when I do see instances where one character is considering it, the others guilt the hell out of him/her with the "but it's your baybee!!11!!" reaction.

That is true. I can't think of one fic where a character put a child up for adoption (that wasn't canon like on the X-Files). yeah, that "but it's your baybee!!11!!" reaction is very common when someone is considering options. Because the decision isn't hard enough w/o someone stating the obvious and throwing on a guilt trip.
