Georgia Congresswoman Marjorie Taylor Greene is once again under fire for comments she made on her podcast.

This week’s controversy is over statements she made about parents of non-biological children, and would apply to families that have children through adoption, second marriages, and some fertility treatments.

In a discussion about family values, Greene made the following comments:

Children are in the greatest danger in America today because traditional family values are being destroyed—the idea that mom and dad together, not fake mom and fake dad, but the biological mom and biological dad, can raise their children together and do what’s right for their children.

The remarks immediately drew criticism from adoptive parents and adopted children nationwide.

  1. Well I’m adopted and I totally agree with her. And most of the so called “adoptees” who don’t, aren’t even adopted-they are adopters and facilitators pretending they are-a scam that has been going on for 20 years on the internet.
    Being adopted is one of the hardest and saddest situations in the world, especially right now.
    If we say how much adoption and all it’s stealing of our rights and heritage hurts us, then we are demonized by the right as being pro-choice-which isn’t true. I’m against abortion also.
    Either way we adoptees lose-the left wants us dead, and the right wants us to be slaves to infertile couples.
    We are bought and sold (the adoption industry is a billion dollar business, and is NOT non-profit), we have our Constitutional and God given right to our heritage taken from us in the form of closed adoption records and the denial of OUR OWN birth certificates, which is cemented by the Birth Mother Privacy lie started by those who forced women to give away their babies in the 50’s all the way up to now,
    because single moms are still forced to do so because they are single by the Mormons, Baptists and the Catholics.
    These people totally ignore and trash the utter importance of the mother and child bond and relationship and they have no right.
    We like all children need our real and only biological mothers (which is how nature intended it) but we are abused in many way by adopters if we express those feelings. And that is not love, a loving home or a better life. Nor is making a child tell lies or within one, which is all adoption really is. Being forced to deny who you really are is a form of insanity and it not good for anyone.
    Adopters will protest that truth however but that is their inferiority complex and immature refusal to accept their infertility talking. Adoption is their temper tantrum all over us.
    The only sane and healthy answer is Family Preservation, Kinship and Guardianship. And truth be told, if there was no money involved in adoption, then adoption agencies wouldn’t even try to coerce a single mom into signing over her baby to them so they can sell her child for 50K which is standard procedure now.
    So many young women have been brainwashed that they should give their babies to strangers which is totally the wrong attitude.
    Families are supposed to take care of their own-their own kin-the entire family and this is what needs to start happening with single moms and their babies. Not throwing a member of their family and birthright identity away like trash to strangers.
    The damage that causes us is unforgivable and constantly ignoring that fact is unforgivable as well.

  2. *typo-adding intended word
    Nor is making a child tell lies or *live* within one, which is all adoption really is.
