Married vs. "unmarried" - Pregnancy, Birth and Falling in Love with Your Baby

Reproductive Exploitation: What Is It?

When perfectly loving and able parents are forced or coerced into surrendering their children by an industry that makes $1.4 billion dollars per year from it, this is exploitation.

NATURAL PARENTS ARE FORCED TO SURRENDER THEIR CHILDREN TO ADOPTION:

  • by parents, family, unscrupulous lawyers, social workers; and by lack-of-support from the state, natural fathers, and family members.
  • immediately upon birth.  Few expectant mothers are aware of the strength of the love for their newborn baby that they will experience in the days following birth or how birth will change their lives.  No first-time mother should be forced, pressured, or coerced to surrender her baby during this vital post-partum period. 

NATURAL PARENTS ARE COERCED INTO SURRENDERING THEIR CHILDREN: 

  • by the adoption-industry (lawyers, social workers, agencies, "facilitators").
  • by adopters who have paid the mother-to-be's living expenses or provided her with a place to stay.  Even if adopters have done this, they are NOT owed a baby in return!

NATURAL PARENTS ARE LIED TO:

  • by lawyers, social workers, agencies, and "facilitators."  These so-called "experts" intentionally withhold information from the mother about the consequences of losing her baby:  depression, grief, and impact on her life and her baby's life.  In many cases, the mother's and father's legal rights are ignored, denied, or not explained to them.
  • by lawyers, social workers, agencies, and "facilitators" who are more interested in obtaining babies than they were in providing the truth.
  • by adopters who promise continued birthparent contact with the child, and then withdraw this later on.
  • by social workers, facilitators and agencies who convince single parents that a two-parent family is necessary.

ADOPTION IS BIG BUSINESS:  $1.4 BILLION DOLLARS ANNUALLY IN THE U.S. ALONE.  KEEPING WOMEN UN-INFORMED IS PART OF THE INDUSTRY'S MODUS-OPERANDI.

Young and unmarried natural mothers are seen as "baby-production units" by the Adoption Industry.  Industry members (social workers, lawyers, agencies, etc.) and customers (potential adoptors) call us "BREEDERS," "BIRTHERS," and "INCUBATORS."

 

How do we know this?  Because we are MOTHERS who were lied to, coerced, and forced into surrendering our babies.  Read some of our personal experiences for evidence of how this system worked, and how it is STILL working.
