One would hope that the doctor's offices and other people in authority would simply throw such offensive and intrusive things away. But you know it's worked at least once, or they wouldn't be bragging about it as part of their "networking".

The entire reach of the infant adoption industry is simply everywhere. "Adoption as THE Loving Option" (as if parenting is not loving, nor an option) has been brainwashed into so many people's heads that most of the general populace doesn't even consider how hurtful it is to many, many, many of those affected by the losses it creates. I absolutely blame the so-called professionals for encouraging this mentality.  

The thing is, I also can't imagine that it's particularly fulfilling to the adoptee later in life to learn, for example, "Hey, we 'found' you by placing an ad in the Nifty Nickel!"

Not exactly a sweet story.  :(

I wrote a long journal entry about this quite some time ago. I'll have to dig it up and repost it here.

Well, I have to start somewhere. I guess I'll write my elected officials and ask that they consider heavily restricting all advertising related to adoption.

I'm certain they'll be incredibly receptive.
