Voice Your Objections

I am reposting a post from one of the adoption groups I am a member of. I thought it was worth using my blog to help spread the word about a new movie coming out called Orphan. The Synopsis is:

The tragic loss of their unborn child has devastated Kate and John, taking a toll on both their marriage and Kate’s fragile psyche as she is plagued by nightmares and haunted by demons from her past. Struggling to regain some semblance of normalcy in their lives, the couple decides to adopt another child. At the local orphanage, both John and Kate find themselves strangely drawn to a young girl named Esther. Almost as soon as they welcome Esther into their home, however, an alarming series of events begins to unfold, leading Kate to believe that there’s something wrong with Esther — this seemingly angelic little girl is not what she appears to be. Concerned for the safety of her family, Kate tries to get John and others to see past Esther’s sweet facade. But her warnings go unheeded until it may be too late… for everyone.
I really believe that some movies should never be made and viewed by audiences. This is one such Movie.
If you can support the protest of the showing of this film please do.

POST;

Someone’s done alot of homework! If you’re up for ‘voicing’ your objection to the movie “Orphan” here are some suggestions and contact information. Look closely at the links to board members…. not so sure they’re complete.

Hi,

Here is the follow up to the last email regarding the Orphan Movie. This is where we need to write.

First DON’T support the film and DO tell others not to see the film. If they don’t make any money then these movies will not continue.

Second, write to the emails and addresses below.

Third, talk to your local movie theater and tell them not to support the film. If they do plan a protest.

Finally, pray the Lord would not allow this negative press to affect the lives of older children waiting to be adopted.

Thanks for your support! Here is all the info you need.

      I have gone so far as to create a website dedicated to boycotting Warner Bros. http://www.boycottwarnerbros.com. Feel free to disseminate it.

      WIth your permission, I’d like to use the board member info you have here. My site has printable letters that can be mailed in, which I’ll keep up there, but I’d like to use your information as well. Are you okay with that?

      Thanks for helping to get the word out about this horrible film. 🙂

    A lot of adoptive parents are angry about one line in this film: “It must be hard to love an adopted child like your own.”

    How pathetic that they chose to be angry about this movie line but are perfectly content that their adopted child’s birth certificate was permanently sealed from him/her with their permission! Yes, adoptees have to live their lives carrying around “amended” birth certificates and are NEVER allowed to see their original birth certificates containing their true names and the names of his/her true biological parents. Adopting parents get to have their names placed on the amended certificates as the birth parents! What lies!!!! These violations of a child’s rights does not concern the protestors because it works for them! It’s not their ethnicities, their heritages that are sealed. No, their newly purchased child will be forced to accept these lies are his/her truth. These self-righteous idiots own the copyrights to their adopted child’s identity and could care less that it’s FICTION that on the child’s birth certificate. It’s downright disgraceful and pathetic what people choose to protest.

    I’m an adoptee. A lot of my friends are adoptees. We want “Orphan” t-shirts to wear proudly because getting angry over one-liners and not giving a hoot about our civil rights is laughable.

      Hi Mara

      I totally agree with you. Our childs history, background, ethhnicity should never be overlooked, sealed or forgotten.
      However not all adoptees have the opportunity to access this information.
      Our daughter was 2 days old when she was found in a box at a bus stop. She was left with no information at all. All we are certain of is that she is Chinese nothing more. We encourage her to learn Chinese language and culture and will also be behind her 100% if she ever chooses to return to China to find her birth family.
