I'm always going to stand on the side of the kids, not the parents!
I don't think everyone should adopt. I'm just sad people, who in the past would have adopted (it would be a good answer before) now go to science for designer babies. In the past the orphan kids would be OK, but now they are not good enough! The orphan kids were and are great kids...it's the parents that have changed. You find me judgmental. I find it cruel to allow children to grow up with out families. I don’t just judge the designer families, I judge our whole society. There is no such thing as throw away kids! Children should be valued, even when they are 2nd hand and a little damaged! If we didn’t have designer babies… many of the orphan children would be wanted. Many more of them would be the dearly loved sons and daughters they should be. It is politically correct to say it is their life, do not judge them. But I look at how a family would have considered adoption in the past…but now they don’t HAVE to do that. Like adoption was a bad idea, but the only choice in the past. Maybe adoption was a good idea in the past, and it still is a good idea! Maybe the designer kids are the bad idea! But if I’m wrong…tell me, what is the answer for the 200 million orphans in this world? Sure, adoption is not for everyone. But it still amazes me how people who try science and fail , then somehow soften their hearts to adoption. When you want to be a parent, and those 2nd hand broken orphan kids are your only hope…they all of a sudden don’t look so bad after all! We are all broken...and none of us is perfect. Birth children are a risk. My oldest birth child has autism. Maybe we should think more as a society, and less as individuals. Is it morally and ethically right to be creating designer children, when 200 million children are orphans? Forgive me for this rant…but I got e-mail saying I shouldn’t judge people who want designer babies. I shouldn't judge them. This is true! And adoption is not for everyone...true! But 200 million children should not grow up in an over crowded orphanage, foster home, or alone on the street. Seriously, if people are desperate to love a child, why not consider adoption? Shouldn't they invest more thought into the idea of learning to love a child they did not bear? I know it's not hard to love orphans...they grow on you when you are willing to open your heart.
