Alabama sets record for adopting foster children

A record number of children from Alabama’s foster care system found permanent homes during the 2018 fiscal year, Gov. Kay Ivey announced. There were 710 foster children adopted during the year that ended Sept. 30, up from 509 in fiscal year 2017 and 502 in 2016. There are about 6,375 children in foster care in Alabama.

I’m glad to see that Alabama seems to be erasing the stigma of adoption.

In 2014 alone Alabama had over 8000 abortions. I don't think that adopting 710 kids on your best year is going to be able to do anything to curb the amount of children that are going to be coming into the world in Alabama that wouldn't have otherwise. As much as I am willing to pat Alabama on the back for this, trying to pretend that this in some way counterbalances their backwards abortion laws is just being disingenuous or ignorant. https://www.guttmacher.org/fact-sheet/state-facts-about-abortion-alabama
