Lack of actual facts, of course, won’t dissuade Rep Givens from enriching her moral panic and her campaign to invent an absurd solution for a problem that doesn’t exist. She has lined up anonymous (what else!) funding from a constituent in Baldwin County to fund Safe Haven Baby Boxes in what she calls “the 10 largest cities near universities.
Dobbs certainly impacts the restoration of adoptee rights to records, history, family, and identity. It establishes a state-backed pattern of purposeful creation and growth of an adopted class without normal identity rights and maintains the spurious ethics of adoption secrecy. It promotes the commercialization of child adoptee bodies and attempts to invent adult adoptee gratitude and adherence to adoption and its institutions. Should we expect a big boom in therapy in 20 years? These are things we need to think about:
It’s all theater. For baby box pushers, adoptees and “desperate mothers” are nothing more than dehumanized props used to create a utopian abortion-free world.
Christian zealots have weaponized Safe Haven—and now Baby Boxes—to push their forced-birth agenda during COVID-19 hysteria.
Abortion abolitionists continue their fantasies about abortion and adoption, and abortees and adoptees.
