Feedback at 5:00: Initiating Adoptions Online

There is an investigative report in Alaska that found children up for adoption on Craigslist.

According to the story, the outright sale of children is a crime, but there are no state laws in Alaska prohibiting the advertisement of children for adoption.

That means initiating private adoptions through Craigslist are not illegal.

However, those who want to adopt must still go through the legal adoption process, including a home stay and approval by the state.

For today’s Feedback at 5:00, should there be restrictions on what can be posted on Craigslist and other online classified sites?
