"HE'S GOING TO HAVE A BABY", a warm-hearted look at a homosexual couple in the US adopting a foreign child, turned out to be an abortion (screened June 16th).

As this blog discovered, a review in the Sydney gay paper, The Sydney Star Observer, saw that the deal was a dud for reasons deeper than the sexual orientation of the adopting parents.
Unfortunately, He’s Having A Baby is unlikely to help the wider community warm to the idea of gay and lesbian families ... [the adopting men] seem to have no interest in his culture, his past, or even his personality. And the adoption process reduces children to the same status as everything else a rich enough person can buy.
