Birth mothers and adoptive parents are baby brokers.....

So for those of you that call women that have had an abortion a "murderer", does that mean we can call birth mothers and adoptive parents “baby brokers"?

It is what it is; don't call it by any other name.

  • No, adoption is usually like 10-20k actually. Adoption is buying and selling of children, people just choose not to see it that way because it hurts their feelings.

  • I think that every person serves a purpose and if providing a child is a woman's purpose then more power to her. I believe that abortion is a choice. :o) http://moneyathomeoregon.blogspot.com

  • NO - it is not the same thing! Abortion is the taking of an innocent life. Adoption is giving a child a home that you can't provide and you know that. Some people can not have children for whatever reason - that is not to say that they aren't supposed to be parents. Sometimes it is God's design for a birth mother to be the means for an adoptive family to have a child that they couldn't have otherwise had.

  • Birth mothers are selling their babies and adoptive parents are buying them. Sounds like baby brokers to me. Sorry if that offends you Rutter Mama.

  • Rutter, that is the "fairy tale" of adoption. Some mothers do not give their babies up for unselfish reasons or to give their child a better life. Some do it because their bf left them, they are not ready to grow up or they just don't want the baby. yes, some look to get all they can for their baby. I know a girl who gave up her baby and tried her best taking advantage of the adoptive parents. Asking for money, and other things...

    Not all birthmoms are bad. But not all of them are heros with their baby's best interest at heart.

  • Yeah no, it doesn't work that way.. if anything the birth mother is an abandon-er and the adoptive parents are rescuers
