Preying on prospective adoptive parents

I'm reading a book right now by Ellen Herman, and this story I just saw on the Today Show brought up all kinds of thoughts from the book.

Adam Pertman from Evan B. discusses being a good "consumer" in this clip. "Not of the baby, but of services."

Even with the clarification, it still is so distasteful to me, this use of commodified language.
