Adoptanter i USA har fået besked om en biograffilm, der har premiere denne sommer. Forfilm kan ses her: http://orphan-movie.warnerbros.com/ (skal advare om, at det er en gyser!).
Selvom ingen helt ved, præcis hvad den handler om, og hvordan adoptionstemaet er vægtet i gyseren, så samles der protester mod filmen på grundlag af filmens trailer. Bl.a. her http://www.petitionspot.com/petitions/OrphanMovie.
Der er udformet et standardbrev, som man kan sende til Warner Brothers
To whom it may concern:I want to express my outrage about the release of the movie Orphan. The film plays into the stereotype of adopted children as damaged and dangerous. It discourages families from pursuing adoption, particularly adoption of older children, who are especially in need of loving homes. As someone who cares about adoption, I am horrified by the line in the trailer that "it must be hard to love an adopted child as much as your own." Adoption has often been misrepresented in the media, but the previews for this film are unbelievably offensive. I urge you to change the promotional materials, and to consider holding the release of the film altogether.
