I was originally going to stay out of this story, but I have become intrigued by how this story has been handled by the media and those with their differing opinions. I actually feel sorry for Madonna as she is being dragged over the coals - a thought that is actually surprising for me, as I normally would never feel sorry for her in any way.
I do agree, however, with alot of the critics regarding the choice of country where there are no laws regarding adoption and the fact that her son David's father is alive in the country. Angelina Jolie has been very vocal about this particular issue.
I think that I am most surprised that people are attacking her for adopting a child outside of the US. Since when are we restricted by some moral code that we cannot adopt outside of our own country? I understand that there are laws that are in place, and she should not be treated any differently; however, what is the real issue in adopting outside of the US? I would love to hear from those of that opinion so that I can better understand the reasoning.
I am also concerned about the limits that people are suggesting that could eventually end with restricting our reproductive choice (aka IVF, adoption, etc.). What are your thoughts?
