Adoption: A Hot Bed of Religion and Politics

If anyone doubts the integral ties between religion and politics in the U.S. and how entwined adoption policies are in all of it, consider the following from Tampa Bay (FL) Online:

Two  candidates hoping to replace outgoing Florida U.S. Senator George LeMieux battle over who is more pro-life. 

Marco Rubio told a crowd at a Christian Coalition candidates forum today that Gov. Charlie Crist isn't "pro-life."

"If you don't believe Roe v. Wade should be overturned, you are not pro-life," Rubio told the Miami group, according to a release from his campaign.

The Crist campaign responded: "The Governor is clearly pro-life, as he has stated himself, and as his record of promoting adoption and fighting for parental notification demonstrates. ...."

Crist also says as governor, he has increased adoptions and government support for adoptive couples, and protected the budget for pregnancy counseling centers that encourage adoption.

Adoption is as big a political football as is abortion!  Governor Rendell in PA used a pro-adoption game plan to to try to boost his sagging ratings and fight charges of corruption by taking kids our of Haiti to be left in orphanages in the U.S. instead!

Babies: Screw what's good for them. They are good for making money off and getting votes!
