Dissident Voice ~ American Babies Exported for Adoption

Excellent article written by Mirah Riben at Dissident Voice ~ Thank you, Mirah, for your strong voice of advocacy! 

"As in any other industry, adoption businesses serve the needs of their paying clientele, which in this case are those seeking children. Despite our staunch cultural belief that all adoptions occur in “the best of interests of the child,” even home studies are conducted by private contractors paid for by the prospective parents. To say there is a conflict of interest is a misnomer as no one is protecting the interests of anyone other than the paying customer, least of all the rights of the children whose lives will be irrevocably changed and forever impacted by the transaction.

They are relegated to commodities in a demand-driven marketplace."
