is "theft", then what is adoption?

"kidnapping" is less strong than talking about "murder" which I'm
told is a bit too strong. Unfortunately "kidnapping" also puts the
focus on the emotions of the birth parents rather than the idea that
there is one less child born into the world.
I throw it back out to this group. Our opponents in the "one size
will be imposed on all" camp are abusing the over-simplification of
calling copyright infringement "theft" (or in some cases, calling any
diverging from their chosen business model as "theft" or "giving away").
I am looking to find use of another emotionally charged phrase that
can be used to counter that rhetoric, and put it in the context that it
should be understood which is as an irrational extremism.
So much of the full spectrum of development, distribution and funding
of creativity is obscured to those who are limited by thinking of PCT's
as remotely similar to tangible "property".
