Yes it's logical... Not true that 100% of unwanted babies won't find loving parents, but I think the chances are lower for an unwanted baby vs a wanted one.
For that to be logical, you would have to ignore the fact that adoption is an option.
How many criminals, rapists, gangbangers , etc etc do you think had a great quality of life growing up as wanted children?? MY guess is not that many.
Actually, most of the criminals I know, came from decent homes, fairly well off, with excellent parents.

I know too many people who have adopted someone elses broken child, only to live in horror for years.
I'm not saying all are broken, but sometimes it's s crap shoot.
Are you willing to take your chances?
