Sept. 18, 2009 - PRLog -- Pound Pup Legacy will present the third annual “Demons of Adoption Award” to counter adoption propaganda and the self-congratulatory practices of the Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute's annual Angels in Adoption AwardsTM.

Adoption is the largest unregulated industry in the USA today. Billions of dollars are involved with little oversight and no accountability. Unmarried, pregnant women continue to be coerced or tricked into surrendering their children to persons who profit from adoption.

“Furthermore, over the years, inter-country has been proven to be rampant with fraud and corruption, an inconvenient truth for adoption agencies that prefer to keep their supply channels open,” said Niels Hoogeveen, spokesperson for Pound Pup Legacy.

“Adoption is either presented to the public as a win-win situation in the case of domestic adoption or saving the lives of orphans in inter-country adoption. No mention is ever made of the fact one family has to be destroyed before an other can be created. The real 'winners' are adoption agencies and facilitators,” he added.

Until October 30, 2009, you can help to select the recipient of this year's award. Cast your vote by following this link: http://poundpuplegacy.org/node/37652.

The nominees (see links below for more information) include the following:

Adoptions First for offering of a free birth mothers package

Athanasios Kollias aka Teo for the involvement in various Guatemalan child trafficking cases

Barnardos for promoting the removal of children and have them adopted as the solution to family breakdown

Bethany Christian Services for using coercive tactics obtaining infants for their customers

Deborra Lee-Furness for pushing laxer regulations in inter-country adoption

Harry and Bertha Holt for starting the placement of "special needs children" who are truly not adoptable, into the homes of already huge families

Independent Adoption Center for plugging their business on WE TV's Adoption Diaries, making them the non-denominational Bethany

Joint Council on International Children's Services for supporting temporary movement of foreign children to America because such trial-basis "exchange" programs "help" the adoption process

LDS Family Services for using coercive tactics in obtaining infants for adoption and for not respecting paternal rights

Scott and Karen Banks for child trafficking, coercive adoption practices and the abandonment of their adopted children

The Dutch Ministry of Justice for preventing research into corrupt adoption practices in China, because of diplomatic and business relations with that country

The government of Malawi for allowing Madonna to adopt Mercy James
