Adoption Not Abortion: Pimping Adoptees for a "Higher Purpose""

I did not intend to write as much as I have about abortion in this month of National Adoption Awareness but the subject just keeps getting in the way. Abortion is the wild card that pops up in even the best laid plans of reformists and activists. In some weird fit of cognitive dissonance, anti-aborts claim that the  fetus shares the same rights as the already born, but reject the notion that if this sacradotaled fetus is brought to term, born and adopted that it should be treated equal under law once it is secularized. In other words, once the word becomes flesh, it’s on its own.  Adoption and abortion, of course, have little in common, though the increasingly Gospelized adoption industry and the anti-abortion corpos make a seamless fit.  Together they present adoption as a  happy win-win-win solution for the principals involved, when they are actually  manipulating, propagandizing, redeeming and reconstructing these principals for the higher purpose of political pimping. It’s bad enough as is, but  during National Adoption Awareness Month (NAAM), we get a booster shot of happy-dappy juice from the evil twins. STUDENTS FOR LIFEJust as NAAM was gearing up, I received a tweet from Students for Continue Reading →


Thursday, Judie Brown, founder of the American Life League, launched herself boldly where no woman has gone before. Krispy Kreme Celebrates Obama With Pro-Abortion Doughnuts. While we pause for a moment to scratch our heads and ruminate over that headline, I’ll remind readers that in the 1990s, the American Life League attempted to block the implementation of Tennessee’s semi records access law by signing on as an amicus in Doe v Sunquist. Adoptees scare her. Every time an adoptee gets her obc, a woman has an abortion. Most recently ALL made an appearance in the Daily Bastardette when Mrs. Brown evinced disgust disguised as moral confusion over Pope Benedict’s Dignitas personae in which her leader called for a halt to the creation of human embryos and hence embryo adoption. Earlier, Bastardette reported on Mrs. Brown’s angst over a study that indicated that birth control pills encourage women to have sex with men they are compatible with, rather than with men they don’t particularly find attractive or interesting, but whose love juice would strengthen the gene pool. Now. Back to the present and Mrs. Brown’s Krispy Kreme conundrum. According to Mrs. Brown: The next time you stare down a conveyor belt Continue Reading →


Friday, the long-waited Dignitas personae (The dignity of a person), was released by the Vatican’s Congregation for the Doctrine of the Faith with the approval of Pope Benedict XVI. You can read the whole paper here. There’s no surprises: birth control = badabortion = badstem cell research = badsurrogacy = bad Added to the B List: snowflake adoption = bad Here is what Dignitas personae says about our frozen brethern: With regard to the large number of frozen embryos already in existence the question becomes: what to do with them? All the answers that have been proposed (use the embryos for research or for the treatment of disease; thaw them without reactivating them and use them for research, as if they were normal cadavers; put them at the disposal of infertile couples as a “treatment for infertility”; allow a form of “prenatal adoption”) present real problems of various kinds. It needs to be recognized “that the thousands of abandoned embryos represent a situation of injustice which in fact cannot be resolved. Therefore, John Paul II made an “appeal to the conscience of the world’s scientific authorities and in particular to doctors, that the production of human embryos be halted, taking Continue Reading →


If James Dobson and NCFA confused you the other day, then the latest American Life League Report’s, “Pill Goggles,” will send you straight into full-blown dementia. According to ALL “reporter” Michael Hitchborn, oral contraceptives can “disrupt a woman’s natural abilities to select the perfect mate.” At first I thought this meant that use of “The Pill” (whackjobs love archaic terms) just encourages women to hook up with any appetizing stray male she encounters in a public bathroom without much chance of a Baby Bumble popping out 9 months later. Of course, that’s not what Mr. Hitchborn is scolding us about–at least not in this segment. It’s deeper than that. It’s genes. If that doesn’t work, click here for the fun. Hitchborn explains that a new study, out of the University of Liverpool on histocompatabity complex (HMC), something that enables “opposites to attract” through “subtle smells” suggests that “The Pill” can alter the female olfactory sense causing women to be attracted to men with non-complimentary HMC genes. That is, women on “The Pill” seek out genetically compatible men, not their genetic desirable opposites. This unfortunate mismatch made under the heady influence of “The Pill” inhibits the creation of babies with stronger Continue Reading →
