PAL -- more word-play
It seems from now on, those criticizing the adoption industry need to embrace the phrasology used by those adoption advocates who prefer to use Positive Adoption Language when they write/speak. Away with child trafficking or illegal adoptions... they look very bad and are not the sort of phrases AP's will want to use.
International adoption advocates prefer the term “adoption fraud” over “child trafficking” in cases where children are not taken for sexual exploitation or slavery. But as we have been reminded by the controversy in Haiti, poor children around the world are in danger of being taken from their families, sometimes through fraudulent adoptions for hidden profits and sometimes for slave markets.

So... when a child is a victim of "adoption fraud" AND is sexually exploited by the paying
owner AP, can we still say that abused adoptee is indeed a victim of child trafficking???
What do we call the practice of selling not-really-orphan children to AP's who
starve, beat, cage "strongly discipline" and home school their carefully chosen angels?
