The October/November issue of Conductive offers a follow-up article to the August series on International Adoption reform. The article, Reverse Robinhoodism: Pitting Poor Against Affluent Women in the Adoption Industry was written by Mirah Riben and Bernadette Wright, PhD. Is centered on the following quote:
“It is the poor states that produce the children and the rich that consume them. In this process, poor parents are left behind, serving only as the initial fabricators of other people’s children.” Debora L. Spar, Harvard School of Business (2006)
This article is a must-read for prospective and adoptive parents as it is we who must demand change before true reform and ethical practices will be accepted by the adoption industry. http://tinyurl.com/Reverse-Robinhoodism
