"Where there is much light, the shadow is deepâ€ – Johann Goethe
I agree it is in very poor taste. I further agree it is likely a hoax or piece of satire. I know people who have done similar things. I don’t approve. In fact, I stopped being friendly with two folks online for their involvement in such things.
Yet for some reason, I could not help but think this site is the shadow of adoption as it exists today.
We find it horrible to think of adopting a child to harvest their organs.
Yet so many find nothing wrong with adopting a child and harvesting their life.
Yes, their life.
In many adoptions of yesteryear and sadly still today, children are often adopted to be the replacement child. They are adopted by couples who dont have the best interest of the child in mind. They are adopted by couples who have their own interest in mind.
They want a child.They go to great lengths, often illegal, unethical lengths to obtain that child. They erase that childs life, their heritage, the existence of their family. They change their name. They keep the child even when the adoption is proven illegal and they are ordered to return the child by the courts. They dont take an organ from the child. They take the child’s entire life.
Are they the majority? I would like to think not. But the fact that they exist and are allowed to operate as they do should give us all pause just like this site does.
Is using a child for their body parts really that much more horrid than using a childs life to make anothers life whole?
No doubt this hoax is horrific, but look deeper, is it really that different than what already exists in some places today? Or might it be merely a darker shade of the same sacred cow?
Why are we so horrified by it? Becuase it might happen? Or because it is already happening and this site shows it to us in black and white and pretty pictures?
Or does it force us to look at the shadow of adoption. Everything casts a shadow in the right light. Everything has a dark side. Is this site showing us the dark side? Are folks upset that there is a dark side to adoption? Or are they worried that this may actually happen? And if it does, what are we going to do TODAY to stop it?
