“Abolition of Adoptions without Parental Consent”

ABOLISH CHILD ADOPTION 1Online Evidence in Support of
a Petition to the EU Parliament

A Compilation of Statistics, Media Coverage and Human Outcry or ‘Cris de Coeurs’

Introduction

When investigating the problem of adoptions without parental consent, especially in the UK, it has to be noted that children are often snatched by force, against their own and the parents’ will, generally without legal documentation or authorisation, even at birth. ‘Evidence’ is produced while the children are in ‘care’, supposedly in the ‘interest of the child’. Secret family court hearings first justify the ‘care’ and then the adoption, against the parents’ wishes.

In the meantime, ‘contact’ may be allowed, but supervised, often imposing deeply disturbing conditions and lately even payment! Furthermore, parents may get ‘injunction orders’ that threaten with imprisonment, should they dare to complain about their ordeal to the media. Those who end up in prison may or may not see their children there. The ultimate punishment without crime takes place when the parental consent for adoption is dispensed with in unlawful ways. Furthermore, a ‘culture of non-investigation of crimes against children’ exists, starting with some 50 children a year dying in ‘care’.
