Blessence Maternity’s ‘Adoption is the new pregnant’ tee touches a nerve with CBB Readers

Okay, so here is a little background on the t-shirt, “Adoption is the New Pregnant.”

As for me, I think the t-shirt is insensitive. It makes light of a matter that is quite serious in most cases. And like someone else said (in the link), it comes across as making adoption “trendy.” It’s propaganda and marketing, someone finding another way to make money off of adoption (or babies). It does not take into account all the millions of birthparents and adoptees who may see this shirt while walking around in Walmart. For some of us, it would be like a kick in the gut, even if we have a good open adoption relationship. 

On the other hand, if adoption is no biggie, then why doesn’t every woman who is able to conceive (married or not) offer her offspring to the next available couple in line. Like the shirt says, Adoption is the New Pregnant. Any takers?

Oh wait, I forgot, it’s only “okay” to give away your baby if you’re poor, too young, not married, was raped, had an affair, used drugs, are a prostitute. Is that about right?
