← Adopted or abducted?

Heartbreaking, absolutely. More than that it is disgusting and pathetic. As a woman who grew up in the 50s and 60s, I knew about these places where my contemporaries were sent to have babies that were then put up for adoption. I also remember after Roe v Wade, my mother saying that people were going to fight it because they want those babies for adoption. It didn't hit me until then that there could be a market for babies. Ironically, religion tauts itself as a family oriented organization while tearing children away from birth mothers instead of supporting them. But of course they use the excuse of sin to do it.
