The caption says, “I believe in child sacrifice… It’s how my mommy and daddy got me. Support Adoption.”
Do I really need to explain why this is so disgusting and insensitive? Did the creators of this little gem think of how a birth mother might feel upon seeing this? What about an adoptee who’s had to come to terms with all they’ve lost because of this “sacrifice”? Please tell me that I’m not the only one who sees the sicko factor of putting this on a child who’s “the object” of said sacrifice.
This shirt plays on the assumption that all babies are given up by birth mothers who were unwed, impoverished or otherwise “unfit” to care for their children. Wrong. The clueless creators of this one forgot the fact that some children loose their parents as the result of war or accidents. In some cases, birthparents were coerced or forced to give up their children. On top of all that, the flippant use of this slogan denigrates the very “sacrifice” that might have gotten them the child they so badly wanted.
Support adoption? *smack
Not for people who buy shirts like these.
