Random Question

Why is everyone so upset over Madonna’s adoption of an African baby? Malawi is impoverished; the life expectancy is about 36 years (and declining since Malawi stopped being a British protectorate in 1964); there are 13 million people but only 500,000 phones; AIDs is rampant; and infant mortality rates are extremely high. It’s not like Madonna kidnapped her adopted child in some international baby version of Operation Rescue.
