Selling kids is more merciful than tearing them limb from limb.
The latter is legal, why not the former?

Here in Louisiana, we do it the old fashioned way...put up a flier at a livestock barn!

Under the FREE section on Reno's CraigsList there was an ad giving away two kids (I think it was two). It was pulled right away

why is it that a simple idea like a community-based internet bulletin board seems to act like a magnet in drawing all of the human debris on the planet?

You’re right. If a woman wants to sell her child, it’s a bad thing, some say. But if she hires a lawyer to sell her child for her, it’s a good thing.

This all points to how screwed up the adoption process has become, in my opinion.

18 month old, not a teenager? I’m surprised.

Well, I was tempted to sell her when she was 18 years old! LOL!

(We both survived teenagerhood and she's a delightful young lady today.)

There were times when our kids were younger, that if Craigs List existed, I might very well have put one or two up for sale.

That’s not true. A lot of middle-class Americans adopt from other countries for a variety of reasons. It’s not “the rich” who pursue international adoptions.

I've known many folks that adopted in this country..in the last 25 years that were not "rich"....and they adopted children here in the United States..............

It’s also not about misrepresenting those who pursue foreign adoptions.

No that was what my statement was about those that buy foreign babies. They just call it something else. It is not about adoptions.
