Is being loved as a child a human right? This practical, philosophical and provocative discussion will explore the justification for a fundamental right of children to be loved and our societal obligations to provide such love for them. The fulfillment of children’s rights to be loved are made more complicated by poverty, unwanted pregnancies, the challenges often involved in adoption and the fact that each year, thousands of children leave foster care at age eighteen without ever finding a permanent loving family.
