Russian Adoptions : Blind opinion by Natalia Kolesnikova

Natalia, Natalia, Natalia,

Reuters employes you to be a reporter. Why are you acting like a blogging opinion page writer?

Your article “Big bad Vlad” was published in the US by NEW YORK DAILY NEWS (opinion section)

The heartfelt, but misguided statement by Natalia was “Outlawing adoptions by Americans will only hurt Russian children”. This ignored the fact that America is the number one customer of human trafficking globally. It also ignores the fact that human beings are a vital and valuable natural resource of the country where they are born. Yes, the United States is a wonderful place, filled with some of the brightest and best minds from other countries around the world. But look again at what America is doing with that talent. Look again at what the countries who gave birth to those people have lost.

The idea that everyone is better off in America needs to be stopped. America has become a military, industrial complex with continued wars and unbridled corporate greed. Other countries on our planet have become much better places for young, bright minds to work to improve the human condition. America is a great experiment. It had the greatest generation ever, and now is on track for the worst generation ever (Baby boomers). Baby Boomers, with their desire to buy slave built goods, underage sex slaves, and international “orphans”, shows the extent to which our country has fallen from its previous greatness.

The bottom line is that international adoption is human trafficking wrapped in a warm new baby blanked and swimming in hundred dollar bills.

If you are interested in stopping the practice of buying babies from less wealthy families and countries, then you can learn alot more in the following links:

So when Natalia spouts “The strongman’s newest law is pure revenge.”, referring to Putin being in favor of stopping the flow of international adoptions in his country, you know it is an uneducated statement.

Natalia….of all the things you can bring up against Putin and his efforts to hold on to power in Russia, this has to be one of the weakest examples. Putin is acting in his country’s best interest on this deal. That may not sit well with some of the couples wanting to adopt, but international adoptions are bad for everyone.
