I dislike Kelly...I feel like she is lazy and and breeding is basically the only contribution she's able to make to society, and it isn't much of one.

Kelley had a counter offer. "In a weak moment I asked her to tell them that for $15,000 I would consider going forward with the termination," she said.
But as soon as she got in the car to go home, she regretted it, Kelley said.
Kron let Kelley know the parents had refused to pay $15,000. By that point, it didn't matter to Kelley -- she'd decided against abortion no matter what. Kron sent her an e-mail asking if she'd scheduled the appointment for the abortion.
Kelley wrote back a one-word answer: no.

I'd bet you $15k that if they had agreed to that amount, there would have been an abortion.

Baby S. -- her adoptive parents are comfortable using her first initial -- has a long road in front of her. She's already had one open-heart surgery and surgery on her intestines, and in the next year she'll need one or two more cardiac surgeries in addition to procedures to repair her cleft lip and palate. Later in childhood she'll need surgeries on her jaw and ear and more heart surgeries.

To me, this is just plain torture. I don't understand how people can choose to inflict so much pain on a child.
