Ryan Bomberger was conceived in rape. His adoptive parents raised him in a family of fifteen children, and unleashed love and purpose by their legacy.
Today he is an adoptive parent to two children; he and his wife Bethany also have two biological children.
We discuss the backlash against adoption. Bomberger exposes the organized ideological opposition to adoption. Tactics include demonizing adoption and distorting negative mental health outcomes to adoptees.
Bomberger also raises the alarm about Bethany Christian Services, a formerly pro-life organization, whose current policies would block multi-ethnic adoptions while promoting same-sex adoption. Further, any couple opposed to LGBTQ ideology could be banned from adopting at all.
He also shares the surprising story of his encounters with the NAACP for his parody of their organization as the "National Association for the Abortion of Colored People."
