I see on adoption agency (baby-selling business) websites, "birthmother" pages, the line that "adoption is an act of love." The idea seems to be to convince mothers that if they loved their babies enough, they would give them away.
Does anyone else have a problem with the notion that we give away or abandon those we love?
Here is the irony in adoption: If giving away someone we love is an act of love, then i should be divorcing my husband so he could go on to marry someone younger, richer, more beautiful. We should all be doing that, and not only that, but we should be searching out those women ourselves and presenting them to our husbands and boyfriends as their "new partners." (e.g. "Andy and Marcie: A Story") :(
Using this logic, the person who adopts a child should give up that chld to the next person who comes along who happens to have "more" than they do, passing the child on up the line. This is ridiculous! But why are pregnant mothers targetted by agencies using this same logic?
