In a wilderness of heartbreak
and a desert of despair,
Evil’s carrion of justice
shrieks a cry of naked terror.
He’s taking babies from their momas
and leaving grief beyond compare. -Gil Scott-Heron
Every mother deserves to raise her child that she has watered and fed and grown beneath her heart.
This “poverty” you speak of to convince/brainwash/gaslight her into believing that she isn’t enuf is a weak excuse because we know that poverty is manmade.
The solution you say is take that child–that love grown child that reflection of her ancestors–and give him to people who pay 40,000 for a “homestudy”.
How about pay her a living wage?
How about a long, paid maternity leave?
How about quality healthcare for all?
We know this country has plenty of money.
BILLIONS & BILLIONS & BILLIONS in giveaways and tax cuts and tax breaks to corporations every year. TRILLIONS to wars that kill other people’s children.
So your solution to separate mother and child is violent. Is lacking. Is unimaginative. Is cruel. Is reminiscent of 400 years of children sold away from their mothers.
In this land of plenty, there is an industry that function on separating children from their mothers. And we are not screaming.
