President Poutin banning Americans from adopting Russians

Post by world is quiet here » Fri 28th Dec 2012

I think this is crazy. Recently he passed a law that Americans cannot adopt Russian kids.


So, this is totally putting Americans into one category. This is what people do to Jews, Muslims, anyone.

I think it's wrong.

You?

Putin made a risky move in retialation to what he thought was Americans being bad to Russians (You'll notice that it mentions a U.S. legislation). The thing is, if you look at both sides of the arguement you'll probably think that Poutin made a stupid decision. However, I like how he made a risky decision that will risk his political career to try and maintain fairness. I don't quite understand the "U.S. Magnitsky Act" or why it was made. The Americans are preventing people who are accused of commiting certain crimes from entering the U.S.. Personally any foreigner who is accused of commiting a crime that has not yet served time or had a trial shouldn't be allowed into the U.S., in this case the problem seems to be with human rights abuse. I don't know what that means and I don't think that very many other people do either. Here, I think in the big picture the problem is with the U.S. law (which should be at least altered), and I like the move by Putin in this case. That's looking at the big picture, if you look at it closer you'll think that the Russians are using children as effective hostages. But the big picture shows that it isn't as true as it looks.

^This is not meant to be provoking in any way, as I know most people believe that Children should be treated very nicely, especially those who have problems with their every-day life. I personally believe that Children are humans and should be treated like humans, not anything else.

Also, although I like the risky move by Putin, I'm not quite sure what reward there is to get. In this case it feels like it's too much risk for no visible reward.

On July 3, Mr. Putin signed a law banning the adoption of Russian-born children not only to gay couples but also to any couple or single parent living in any country where marriage equality exists in any form.

A few days earlier, just six months before Russia hosts the 2014 Winter Games, Mr. Putin signed a law allowing police officers to arrest tourists and foreign nationals they suspect of being homosexual, lesbian or “pro-gay” and detain them for up to 14 days. Contrary to what the International Olympic Committee says, the law could mean that any Olympic athlete, trainer, reporter, family member or fan who is gay — or suspected of being gay, or just accused of being gay — can go to jail.

Earlier in June, Mr. Putin signed yet another antigay bill, classifying “homosexual propaganda” as pornography. The law is broad and vague, so that any teacher who tells students that homosexuality is not evil, any parents who tell their child that homosexuality is normal, or anyone who makes pro-gay statements deemed accessible to someone under-age is now subject to arrest and fines. Even a judge, lawyer or lawmaker cannot publicly argue for tolerance without the threat of punishment.

Finally, it is rumoured that Mr. Putin is about to sign an edict that would remove children from their own families if the parents are either gay or lesbian or suspected of being gay or lesbian. The police would have the authority to remove children from adoptive homes as well as from their own biological parents.

This is a petition urging sponsors to withdraw their support from the 2014 Olympic games: https://www.change.org/petitions/stand- ... i-gay-laws

This is a petition calling for Elena Mizulina and Vitaly Milonov (main contributors to the bill regarding "homosexual propaganda") to be placed on the Visa ban list by Obama: https://petitions.whitehouse.gov/petiti ... a/mYMFcF9W

This petition is going to the International Olympic Committe, urging them to stand up to Putin: https://www.allout.org/en/actions/russia-attacks
