You say a foetus which hasn't achieved minimum brain wiring to be capable of emotion and dreaming...ever...has no conceptual memories and never has had any.... will become a baby.

I say there are over six billion persons in the world, about half of whom are struggling for the most basic life-support sustainability because this many human beings already extract a tremendous part of Earth's productive capacity.

So if you insist on every conception must be carried to birth, you are doing so at a cost.
You have not ensured the world is sustainable for those already living...in fact it's heading for tragic bottlenecks. Allowing a mother, fully informed and without coercion, to seek help help to terminate her own pregnancy in the first few months is one of the LEAST cruel ways to try to moderate the human population juggernaut.
I do make a distinction between people with mental problems and human foetuses in the first three to four months of pregnancy. I did so very clearly in the post from which you drew the opposite meaning.

I think it's fine to encourage adoption and inform persons about pregnancy.
Do you think, by the way, that you would like it if you were compelled to produce children for others to raise, whether you wanted to or not?
