I totally disagree. By this reasoning, the babies adopted at birth are suffering, as are those birth mothers. And I don't think that's true. If a baby is being cared for by a loving family member, the baby will be just fine.

And just in general, as this relates to the OP, why do the rights of one parent have to trump the rights of the other?
