  Adoption - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Adoption results in the severing of the parental responsibilities and rights of the biological parents and the placing of those responsibilities and rights onto the adoptive parents.
The number of children available for adoption inside Western nations have dropped considerably in recent years, partly because of the legalization of abortions, partly because of the increased acceptance of single parenthood.
In countries which practice confidential adoption, this desire has led to efforts to open sealed records (for example, see Adoption reunion registry) and efforts to establish the right of adoptees to access their sealed records (for example, see Bastard Nation).

 Adoption in Ancient Rome - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In ancient Rome, adoption of boys was a fairly common procedure, particularly in the upper senatorial class.
Adoption was agreed between families of (for the most part) equal status, often political allies and/or with blood connections.
Adoption was not secretive or considered shameful, nor was the adopted boy expected to cut ties to his original family.

The number of children available for adoption inside Western nations have dropped considerably in recent years, partly because of the legalization of abortions, partly because of the increased acceptance of single parenthood, and partly because of the publicity surrounding past practices of forcing unwed mothers to relinquish their children for adoption.
Because of the decline in domestic adoptions, many children are adopted from foreign countries nowadays; however, such international adoptions have issues of their own.
In countries which practise closed adoption, this desire has led to efforts to open sealed records (for example, see Adoption reunion registry) and efforts to establish the right of adoptees to access their sealed records (for example, see Bastard Nation).

 [No title]   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-20)
Adoption is the legal act of severing the parental responsibilities and rights of the biological parents of a child and placing those responsibilities and rights onto adoptive parents, taking a child who is not a blood relative into one's own family.
A related case where government intervention has resulted in adoption is the case where the child's blood relatives belong to an outgroup culture which has been deemed unfit as a whole by the controlling government.
In countries which practise closed, secret adoption, this has led to efforts to circumvent sealed records (for example, see Adoption Reunion Registries) and efforts to establish the right of adoptees to access their sealed records (for example, see Bastard Nation).

Adoption agencies can range from government-funded agencies that place children at little cost, to lawyers who arrange private adoptions, to international commercial and non-profit agencies.
The number of children available for adoption inside Western nations has dropped considerably in recent years, partly because of the legalization of abortions, partly because of the increased acceptance of single parenthood.
This situation is morally difficult because the adoptive families and government agencies see adoption as a great benefit to trans-racially adopted children, while some African-Americans see it as an assault on their culture.

 We Three Kings: A History of Adoption -
Paragraphs 185 through 193 of the Code deal specifically with adoption, the responsibilities of adoptive parents, and conduct of the adoptee.
Adoption had to be with the consent of the birth parents, and was arranged by deed whereby they released any claim.
Adoption was very common during the ancient/classical periods, and generally involved adults - to carry on a dynasty, occupation, or family name; to care for a parent in old age, or to protect property rights.

Antony occupied himself with military campaigns in the east and a romantic affair with Cleopatra; Octavian built a network of allies in Rome, consolidated his power, and spread propaganda implying that Antony was becoming less than Roman because of his preoccupation with Egyptian affairs and traditions.
Moreover, Rome was not prepared to accept the control of a despot.
Rome's borders were advanced to the natural frontier of the Danube, and the province of Galatia was occupied.

 Amnesty International urges government to sign the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court before the deadline ...
In November 2000, President A.R. Robinson from Trinidad and Tobago, called the adoption of the Rome Statute "a most significant achievement in the history of mankind." In 1989 he first introduced the motion in the General Assembly that ultimately established the Court.
Amnesty International, together with thousands of NGOs worldwide and the majority of states, considers that the adoption of the Rome Statute (which establishes an International Criminal Court that will prosecute people accused of the most heinous crimes known to humanity) is one of the greatest ever advancements in international law.
When the Rome Statute was adopted on 17 July 1998 the drafting states included a provision that the Statute would be open for signature until 31 December 2000 and after this date states that have not signed will have to ratify the Statute in one step.

 CATHOLIC ENCYCLOPEDIA: Martin Luther
His mission to Rome, extending over an estimated period of five months, one of which he spent in the city of Rome, which played so important a part in his early biographies, and even now is far from a negligible factor in Reformation research, occurred in 1511, or, as some contend, 1510.
By this ignoble business arrangement with Rome, a financial transaction unworthy of both pope and archbishop, the revenue should be partitioned in equal halves to each, besides a bonus of 10,000 gold ducats, which should fall to the share of Rome.
He at once took refuge in the excuse that such a trip could not be undertaken without endangering his life; he sought influence to secure the refusal of a safe-conduct through the electorate and brought pressure to bear on the Emperor Maximilian and Elector Frederick to have the hearing and judges appointed in Germany.

 Wikinfo | Nero
Rome was severely damaged by this fire, which started at night in densely populated areas like the Suburra, in which had been built the insulae, sort of modern condominiums on 3 or 4 floors, made of wood.
After the burning, Rome was rebuilt, and Nero is supposed to have played a leading role in the reconstruction; it was now that the building of his famous Domus Aurea began.
The emperor left for Greece, in 67, where he amused his hosts with other artistic performances, while in Rome Nymphidius (a colleague of Tigellinus, taking the place of one of the Pisonian conspirators) was collecting the support of praetorians and senators.

 Human Rights Brief - Center for Human Rights and Humanitarian Law - Washington College of Law
The U.S. delegation to the Rome Conference, led by David Scheffer, former U.S. ambassador-at-large for war crimes, was not concerned that one of its citizens acting in an official capacity as a soldier or government representative would commit the crime of genocide.
Rather, the team was concerned that, under the language of the Rome Statute, the ICC could misconstrue a peacekeeping, pre-emptive defense, or other military action by a U.S. citizen as a commission by that citizen of either a crime against humanity or a war crime.
During the Rome Conference, Senator Jesse Helms (R-NC), chair of the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, declared that the Rome Statute would be Adead on arrival" in Congress unless the ICC incorporated a provision exempting all U.S. citizens from its jurisdiction.

From 1996 to 1998, six sessions of the UN Preparatory Committee were held at United Nations headquarters in New York to work on a draft statute to establish a permanent international criminal court; a first draft had been produced by the UN’s International Law Commission.
At the end of the five weeks of intense and often emotional deliberations, 120 nations voted in favor of the adoption of the Rome Statute of the ICC.
Nevertheless, almost all members of the Coalition committed themselves to remain engaged in the process, to support the treaty as it stands and to continue to work through the Preparatory Commission and once the Court is functioning to ensure that it fulfills its enormous potential.

At the same time, the number of white children available for adoption declines, as white families are discouraged from interracial adoption.
In ancient Rome, adoption to secure an heir was a common practice.
The latest studies of interracial adoption do not support critics' claims that such adoptions expose children to prejudice and make them uncomfortable with their racial identity.

 Constanstine the Great
By his adoption of Christianity, and by various policies encouraging its growth, he played a major role in transforming it from a persecuted sect into a dominant religion of Europe.
It might be argued that Constanstine's adoption of Christianity did not really change the course of history, but merely ratified the inevitable.
After all, although the Emperor Diocletian(who ruled 284-305) had conducted a vigorous persecution of Christianity, his attempt to suppress the religion was unsuccessful, for by that time Christianity was far too strong to be stamped out by even the fiercest measures.

The development of the Rome Statute was a decade long process, eventually leading to official adoption in Rome on July 17, 1998.
Article 5 of the Rome Statute lists the crimes within the jurisdiction of the ICC: crimes of genocide, crimes against humanity, war crimes, and crimes of aggression still to be defined by the ASP (Article 5, paragraph 2, Rome Statute).
The mission statement of the Rome Statute personifies the new ideology of an international society (with common goals, values, and interests) and the ideological principle of universal jurisdiction (the Rome statute describes an ability to have jurisdiction over the most serious crimes but realistically has limited jurisdiction).

 Books and Review: "International and National Prosecution of Crimes under International law: Current Developments"
The adoption of the Rome Statute of the International Criminal Court on 17 July 1998 is widely seen as the starting point for a new phase in the history of international criminal justice.
The well-known United States’ argument that the Rome Statute is allegedly “flawed” was once again reiterated, and this, in the opinion of Kaul, the German senior negotiator, cannot and should not be overlooked by anyone.
Consequently, a number of difficult issues that could not be resolved in the negotiations on the Rome Statute are not conclusively regulated in the Rules of Procedure and Evidence either, and are thus left to the Court to determine.
