Pro-Life? How are you helping adoption?

I live in Kansas and I'm usually on the adoption boards. However, I accidentally found this debate board and I would like to pose a question. I have such a hard time understanding the Pro-Life movement when the US and each individual state demostrate such broken adoption laws/procedures/agencies. There are agencies in the state that are VERY pro-life and say that they will help find resources, etc. for mothers but they do not follow through. Also, those same agencies will not help adoptive families network with these mothers because they believe that the biological family is the only option (regardless of lacking resources, support, etc.).
Why is that?
If the Pro-Life movement would put 1/4 of the effort they demonstrate regularly at protests, court cases, etc., on adoption reform, we'd have a great system that would work for every mother, every situation.
Just though I'd throw that out there... Saying, "Just Adopt" isn't that easy, from my experience.
