Madonna's Baby Crusade DENIED

Aging pop star Madonna has had her request for adopting another child rejected by a Malawi court.  A judge ruled that the adoption “would set a dangerous precedent to bend rules requiring that prospective parents live here for some period.”  Madonna is said to be devastated and is appealing the decision.

Madonna adopted a baby boy from Malawi in 2006 and hoped to adopt a 4 year-old girl named Mercy James. The ruling came as a surprise to all involved, as the previous day the country’s Information Minister has publicly supported the adoption. Malawian law requires prospective parents to be a resident of Malawi for 18 – 24 months before allowing adoption. Madonna bypassed this law when she adopted David Bandas in 2006.

Madonna’s ex-husband, Guy Ritchie, released a statement defending Madonna. He said, "Madonna is a fantastic and loving mother who cares deeply about her own children, and children who may need additional help and support. I fully supported Madonna in her decision to apply for this adoption, and I am saddened that her application has been rejected. She is motivated only by being a caring parent who seeks to share some of the advantages and opportunities that her life has given her.”

Judge Chondo said that allowing Madonna to adopt Mercy would endanger other children, as it would open up the doors to child traffickers.
