Adopt! Don’t Breed

With modern technology, the child caretakers, the bearer, the egg donor and the sperm donor need have no genetic relationship with each other. Couples can blow $100,000 in the process. This is ridiculous. They should adopt instead. There is less risk and less cost and no contribution to the population explosion. The parents don’t have to adopt any particular baby unless the baby is proven healthy and suitable in every way. With reproductive technology, the parents are stuck with the child no matter how deformed or disabled.
