Claudia D’arcy created an impassioned debate on the New York Times opinion page. Her argument? Create a Tax Credit for impoverished birth mothers so they can afford to raise their children, and not turn to adoption. It’s worth taking a look.
Just as in so many other online adoption discussions, dozens of people have added their passionate opinions, but there seems to be no room for agreement. Then again, I know that’s not the point.
Perhaps more people can agree America needs to revisit its policies regarding adoption and adoptee rights. I don’t expect it to come up in a presidential debate anytime soon, but a national conversation focused on the well-being of people (minus the financial benefits of anyone) sure would be nice.
