    Madonna, Steven Spielberg, Sandra Bullock, and the list goes on. Kind of fucked up. Looks like they are trying too hard.

    trying to do the right thing I suppose.

    giving the kid a life of extreme luxury and privilege vs. growing up in a ghetto hellhole

    however, if they were truly interested in helping people in the ghetto and really wanted to make a difference, they should instead invest in a massive education and advertising campaign where they gave free birth control pills. Handing them out like candy on every corner. Not having these born-to-fail, future welfare felons in the first place is really the best charity you could possibly give to the mom, to the kid and definitely to society.

    I'm going to give them the benefit of the doubt that they truly wanted to be parents and are not doing this just to make a difference in the ghetto.

    Whether intentional or not, it does promote awareness that there are lots of babies that are less in demand and in need of a home but are low on the priority list of adoptive parents.

    If a celebrity endorsed and promoted a massive birth control campaign, you would see organized boycotts of their work by religious groups. And general comments such as "Why don't they try adopting some of the babies already born that nobody wants?" So no matter what they do, their intentions are always going to be scrutinized.

    The Repubs are losing their minds over making insurance companies pay for BC, you think giving it away free would be an option for them? kids should be sterilized at birth (reversible) then required to take a test and financial fitness exam to get it reversed
