Facebook disinformation of the week
By Tom Quiner
The amount of ‘fake’ news/info on social media seems to be increasing exponentially. It is sometimes depicted in a meme in a way that feeds into the perception of the Left that all conservatives are simply hypocritical.
The meme above is the latest salvo of disinformative propaganda flying around social media.
I occasionally reply in a factual, non-emotive way. Here is my response to today’s meme:
“Actually, the meme is inaccurate. LifeNews reported on adoption research that shows that “there are up to 36 couples waiting for every one baby placed for adoption.” I know my sister and her husband adopted babies overseas because the wait in the U.S. is too long due to our high abortion rate. There just aren’t enough babies. The number of babies available for adoption dropped dramatically when human abortion was legalized.”
It took my wife and I over a year to adopt our daughter, which was the second match. The first match fell through at the last moment. We’re still jaded when we hear people we know have received abortions knowing that there are couples that want to be parents but can’t have children of their own. It’s ridiculous to me that abortions are so easy, yet the process of adopting a child is hopelessly mired in red tape and obvious greed (cost to adopt).
Thanks so much for sharing your story. Come again!
Have friend who has a degree in teaching but stays home to help her visually impaired hubby (also a friend since high school) who is a lawyer. They have jumped through more fiery hoops to adopt than a circus performer does in a career. I cant imagine any better pair to raise a kid, but they cant get it done. Meanwhile kids live out their youth in “the system”.
