    I'm more surprised that unwanted children aren't more frequently being harvested for their organs.

    This is probably even more common than we think.

    Well, if your world consists of "flower power commune liberals," "overzealous conservatives," "average nutbags," and... the State, then perhaps that makes sense.

    I was going to say the same thing, but you beat me to it. Problem is that even with background checks and other precautions, things like this still happen. You can't catch them all.

    What makes the State a decent arbiter of.... anything? And why are some so totally enamored with the State's ability to "cure" issues like this one? Is the State a demonstrably good parent that it can dictate, let alone enforce what makes a "good parent?" What is the State's record as a parent? How many kids has the State had? What was their GPA in school?

    I know who speaks for the State - politicians who we seem to eagerly listen to, and vote for, but whose own personal lives we conveniently and often embarrassingly ignore.

    I know everyone here reading this would eagerly have the State into their home to "inspect" how they were doing with their kids, their chores, their... yes even their taxes. The State is so wonderful, we'd have them over for beer and brats, to listen to their wisdom, to sit at their compassionate feet. We'd shower them with laurels and rose petals. We'd confess our every sin to them, begging for forgiveness and restoration. We'd tell our friends about the State, how excited we are to have them visit us. We'd invite them over to meet the State so they too could be as blessed as we...

    NOT.
    Nah, we're far better off keeping the state out of all of this stuff, and if a few kids - or a hundred thousand - get killed or abused by their parents, hey them's the breaks. Wouldn't want them damned social workers trying to protect kids, would we?

    Like it or not, these children are being trafficked across state lines for purposes that aren't in their best interest. Admit it - you are trying to find any excuse to allow this to continue. Why?

    It's an extremely emotional subject that's close to my heart. Kids adopted from other countries that have psychological problems as a result of that? That's a description of my family.
