South Korea: Adopt Our Own, Stop Exporting Our Babies

South Korea, in an attempt to stymie the flood of foreign adoptions of the nations babies, is starting a campaign to decrease the stigma associated with adoption. This is no small task;in 1958, the first year adoptions were tracked in the country, only 30% of adoptions were by South Koreans, the rest being foreign adoptions. The government, in an attempt to end foreign adoption by 2012, has began offering incentives to South Koreans who adopt, including a monthly stipend and greater benefits for the adopted child. Kim Dong-won, with the ministry of health, had this to say about foreign adoptions in his country:

South Korea is the world's 12th largest economy and is now almost an advanced country, so we would like to rid ourselves of the international stigma or disgrace of being a baby-exporting country. . . . It's embarrassing.

Only 1,246 foreign adoptions took place in 2007, compared to 1,388 local adoptions. The South Korean government plans to revoke the visas of Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie, which should cut the number in half for 2008.

I of course am kidding about Brangelina, I think they're great!
