Scary things about adoption #6: Adoption Websites

Anyone can make a website about anything they want, this is true.

But when it comes to the selling of human beings, I dunno, call me a fascist, it just irks me.

There are tons of adoption websites out there put up by individuals who have absolutely no connection to adoption whatsoever. They're in it for one thing: $$$$$

Once you've set up your adoption website using purchased templates and free articles from website content sites (again, usually written by people who have no personal connection to adoption) then you can market them.

Again, nothing wrong with making a few bucks online, right?

It's only teh intraweb, am i rite guyz? Huh? Huh? It's not like they are saying anything wrong.

Although even scarier, is that graphic in the upper left hand corner. The hands with hands growing out of them, holding a uterus with an embryo inside that has a weed growing out of it.

I've sent them an e-mail. I'll let you know what they get back to me with.

Ick there is no way I can even look at that site. Barf!

The weed in the logo symbolizes the stray, unwanted pest to be gotten rid of? Are they trying to infer that mothers are lining up to give their babies away?

What scares me is how ads for these sites seem to be popping up in the margins of more and more non-adoption related sites that I visit.

They've got the $$$$ to buy lots of keyword combos for adsense, it's really scary.
