Liam Neeson Has Issues With Madonna's Adoption Too….

snipshot_9g14pgnjicnt.jpgLiam Neeson has joined the growing list of stars questioning Madonna’s adoption of a Malawi boy last year. Earlier this week, it was Angelina Jolie laying down her concerns (of which she’s backed off slightly) and now Neeson is recalling a time when he too wanted to do the same thing, but withdrew. From the article,

He says, “I have a couple of views. I’m always arguing with my wife about it. It was something I considered when I was there (in Africa) but… I think about it from time to time, but to be honest with you, I have a lot of issues with it. With taking a child away from its parents if they were alive, its culture, its country. I’m slightly worried about the exotic content of it too. It’s like, I dunno, it’s a delicate issue.”

Neeson, who is also an United Nations Children’s Fund (UNICEF) ambassador, is heavily involved in charity organizations; from the ONE Campaign to Make Poverty History. His views seem to match a lot of the discussions people have had over Madonna’s adoption. If the boy’s father was not still alive (and potentially as involved in his life as appears) I do not believe there would be as much controversy. Still, I think it’s a positive step for this kid’s life regardless.
