#Adoption911: @abbyjohnson and #BlackLivesMatter

An adoptive parent of a brown boy who she describes as having “a perpetual tan” states that her worry for him growing up is that “statistically” brown and black men are more likely to commit violent acts and thus end up in prison: Not the school-to-prison pipeline, not systemic racism, but that the pre-condemned child temporarily in her care has to face up to his probabilistic fate.

“Woven Together for Life”, founded by adoption profiteers Mallory Fogas and Leah Outten, will be hosting Abby tonight at 8:00 p.m. ET for a discussion on adoption and being anti-choice. It might be worthwhile for adoptees as well as anyone concerned with societal racialized violence to show up and voice their concerns about racism especially during this moment in time:

Abby Johnson: Adoption and the Pro-Life Community

What state is she in? What is the number for child protective services there? Any lawyers who might be able to advise how to approach this from a legal framework? Is it possible to file complaints or otherwise bring to the community our worries for the safety of the child temporarily in this person’s care?
