The banner says it all

The disembodied pregnant torso in the banner at the “Hope for Adoption” web page run by the “Christian Adoption Consultants” says more about their attitude towards women than I ever could:

Hope For Adoption - Home_1258302818574Can you say “Fetal Support Hardware”?

On a related note, o solo mama wonders why this organization is selling “adopting out” children for such disparate fees:  $15K for an African-American boy, and $39K for a “caucasian child of unknown gender”.

Puke.

    Uh-ho. We be in beeeg trouble now, JJ.

    Our posts will likely unleash a frothing-at-the-mouth, screeching, shrieeeking and full-metal posting of HER golden oldies of zygote, embryo and fetus pron.

    As the proud, loving, doting auntie of an adopted nephew, these Xtian orgs that exploit pregnant women and sell their lily white babies for 2x + that of other babies make me sick. That’s what it is – selling babies, not facilitating an adoption.

    Good morrow, all!
    May one refer to any discount offered for a Caucasian child as their “January White Sale?”
    Selling children? What’s next, listing on the Chicago Mercantile Exchange — right up there with pork bellies, oil futures and sugar contracts?
    “Hi, Folks, it’s Honest Ed, of Honest Ed’s Kindermart. Have we got deals for you. Big, BIG factory incentives on brand-new, off-white, 2009 models, priced to move. Don’t miss out on this little beauty, and we throw in the undercoating for free! Or, you can special order for upcoming 2010 models, hot out of the oven!
    C’mon down to Honest Ed’s Kindermart, and pick out the model of your dreams. And hey! You got special needs? We got special needs! C’mon down and save! Save!! Save!!!”
    It is so INSPIRING to see how conservative Christians love children.

    Damn! I’m setting up a tax-exempt cult, then recruiting white breeding wenches.

    Great post. Used some of it on facebook against the anti-choicers. I gave your site as the link.

    This has given new meaning to the phrase “Every life is precious” that I’ve heard so often from pro-lifers. Apparently every child is precious, but these free market, christian fundies have determined that a white child is $14K more precious than a, as CTZen so eloquently put it, an off white child.

    Why am I not surprised?

    The reason the woman’s face is not shown is because her identity does not matter; she does not count.

    Only that swollen uterus and its contents are important to these people.

  7. 7 Torontonian Sunday, November 15, 2009 at 2:17 pm

    The further in I go and look at additional links, the more
    stomach-churning it becomes.

    What’s worse is the extortionate rates they charge.

    They call themselves Christian?

    Why is it that those who brand themselves Christian
    are usually the polar opposite?

    I can’t even begin to imagine the lawyers and finacial
    experts who were assembled to cobble this thing together.

    What a rogues’ gallery they must be!

  8. 8 Luna Sunday, November 15, 2009 at 2:56 pm

    But don’t you know, it’s not that the white baby is worth more than the black baby, it’s that the assholes that frequent “Christian” organizations for their adoption needs will clearly need an incentive to adopt a black baby!

    Actually, it’s sorta true. Sadly. I knew a lady who was pro-life and anti-choice. When she got pregnant and didn’t want to be, she went to one of the groups that she’d been advocating for. When she told them the baby would be half-black, they turned her away. They simply couldn’t find adoptive parents for babies that aren’t white. They’d tried and failed for so long, they couldn’t guarantee her anything. She found the same issue wherever she went. She ended up finding a private adoptive parent. She’s now pro-life and pro-choice.

    I get a kick out of you Dead Babies R Us crew, all of a sudden your concerned about adopted children, meanwhile you vile monsters set up shop in minority districts so you can exterminate black unborn children. You work for the devil, evil is your name.

  10. 10 Janus Sunday, November 15, 2009 at 5:09 pm

    Jasper, did you say somethin’? 😆

    O Solo Mama here. Thanks for the shout-out. I’m not sure of your readership is also familiar with this article, which shows how ansxious Christian adoption agencies are to separate children from their mothers:

    Jasper – you have been spreading lies about those who don’t march in goose-step with your christofascist ideology for so long that you can’t see the truth in front of you.

    Take off your blindfold and take a honest look at the evil that some members of your community do.

    People who live in glass houses shouldn’t throw stones, Jasper.

  13. 13 JJ Sunday, November 15, 2009 at 7:59 pm

    deBeauxOs – Did you hear a noise? I think it was the Call of the Fetus Fetishist, although it could be mistaken for the desperate quacking of 10,000 constipated ducks.

  14. 14 JJ Sunday, November 15, 2009 at 8:05 pm

    osolomama – Good catch!

    I vaguely recall reading something that linked one of these “CPCs” to an adoption agency & thought it sounded like it could be a fairly heavy situation, but then I promptly forgot about it. Good for you for exposing this one.

    And thanks for the link — that sounds ominous, and a good reason to shut down these fake pregnancy centers.

  15. 15 JJ Sunday, November 15, 2009 at 8:09 pm

    Luna – Sadly, it is true that it’s the customers who dictate these practices, but it doesn’t surprise me coming from the kind of people who’d patronize a fundie adoption service. But there’s something wrong with an adoption service that would pander to those instincts.

  16. 16 JJ Sunday, November 15, 2009 at 8:13 pm

    Torontonian – The rates are incredible! Obviously they’re in it for the money — which is okay, if you’re a business and paying taxes like one, but with the overt religiosity it seems likely that this particular agency has some kind of charitable tax status.

    And the prices mean that they’re not just making money, they’re making BIG money. Someone needs to check their financials.

    Only that swollen uterus and its contents are important to these people.

    They can deny it all they want, but actions speak louder than words. That’s why they started the “abortion hurts women” slogan — because it was becoming so obvious that women are nothing but ambulatory incubators and too many people were calling them on it.

    At least they’re consistent, in spite of all the snappy slogans, it’s obvious they haven’t changed a bit.

    This has given new meaning to the phrase “Every life is precious” that I’ve heard so often from pro-lifers.

    Their slogan should be something more along the lines of…
    White baby? 39K
    Off-white baby? 15K
    Using women as baby machines for profit? Priceless

    Damn! I’m setting up a tax-exempt cult, then recruiting white breeding wenches.

    That’s what they do, only they call it a “Crisis Pregnancy Center” and set up across the street from womens’ clinics, because that’s where the pregnant women are! Talk about a target-rich environment.

  20. 20 Shade Sunday, November 15, 2009 at 8:29 pm

    Geeze and they say abortion clinics profit off women.

  21. 21 JJ Sunday, November 15, 2009 at 8:34 pm

    CTZen – 😆 With these successful commercial enterprises, they might as well go the whole nine yards and start running commercials on late-night TV, featuring a fast-talking salesman in a loud suit:
    “I’m Fetus Fetishist Frank, of Fetus Fetishist Frank’s Fabulous Fetus Factory, where Four-On-The-Floor has a whole new meaning! Our babies are all 4-wheel-drive, a little leaky but they’re good on fuel! Come by anytime and take one of these babies for a spin!”

  22. 22 JJ Sunday, November 15, 2009 at 8:39 pm

    Dr.prole

    That’s what it is – selling babies, not facilitating an adoption.

    That’s exactly what it is, and at a HUGE profit. I know someone who adopted a baby from Korea, and the cost was much less than what they’re selling their caucasian babies for — domestically! With no travel costs, etc. This is purely profit-driven, and they’re making money hand over fist. I’d like to know what their tax status is.

  23. 23 JJ Sunday, November 15, 2009 at 8:41 pm

    Geeze and they say abortion clinics profit off women.

    Oh but they’re doing the Lord’s work, and the Lord wants them to have a healthy bottom line.


Wait. What?
