Annotation:
Adoption has long been enmeshed in the politics of abortion. But as award-winning journalist Kathryn Joyce makes clear in 'The Child Catchers,' adoption has lately become entangled in the conservative Christian agenda. To tens of millions of evangelicals, adoption has become a new front in the culture wars: a test of 'pro-life' bonafides, a way to reinvent compassionate conservatism on the global stage, and a means to fulfill the 'Great Commission' mandate that Christians evangelize the nations. Influential leaders fervently promote a new 'orphan theology,' urging followers to adopt en masse, with little thought for the families these 'orphans' may actually have. Christian adoption activists have added moral weight to a multi-billion dollar adoption industry intent on increasing the 'supply' of adoptable children, both at home and overseas.
'The Child Catchers' is a shocking expose of what the adoption industry has become and how it got there, told through deep investigative reporting and the heartbreaking stories of individuals who found that their own, and their children's, well-being was ultimately irrelevant in a market driven by profit and now, pulpit command.
