Neither the bloggers, nor their "editors" - who are paid by Adoption.com - apply any restrictions on attacks, libel or slander contrary to their own rules. They are rude to anyone who disagrees.
Parents and Professionals for Family Preservation and Protection is opposed to the purpose of this site, its advertisers, and its practices and urges all who are truly interested in preserving families to boycott Adoption.com and its affiliates.
The site exists to promote infant adoption to fill a demand by those who pay for babies thus commodifying children and often exploiting their mothers. Many of the advertisers are unregulated adoption businesses and facilitators, some of which have been investigated for corrupt practices. Their paying clients are prospective adopters, and therefore they deny expectant mothers informed consent, objective option counseling, and separate legal counsel.
The advertisings glamorize relinquishment with lies and coercion - such as photo listings of families seeking to adopt with phrases such as "find the perfect parents for your child" and do not ensure informed option counseling, legal counseling or any other protections for such women. Parenting ones own child is a right protected by our constitution and children's right to remain with their family is protected by UNICEF's CRC which states that adoption should always be a "last resort," not promoted for profit.
We join and support an already existing boycott of Adoption.com by PotentialParents.com. Our support of the boycott against Adoption.com in no way is meant to imply support of any other goal of PotentionalParents.com nor the rights of gays, or anyone else, to adopt. Our interest in this is mutual only in boycotting Adoption.com.
The purpose of adoption is to find the best possible family to meet the needs of orphans and children needing permanent care, not to find children for anyone who wants one, thus, we do not support anyone's "right" to adopt a child. Supporting this boycott are:
