The Shame of Ireland
Almost 80 per cent of the 796 children who died in the Bon Secours mother and baby home in Tuam did not live to see their first birthday.
By 1920, these lay monks had established reformatories all over Ireland. The reformatories were actually slave labor camps for children somewhat like the Gulags in Russia.
Under the British system, reformatories were phased out by the end of the 19th century. Children of broken homes were placed in foster care with other families. Not so in Ireland. These corrupt monks wanted to have access to the children at any cost.
value for adoption.
"adoption is an industry driven largely by money and Western demand, justified by the misguided savoir complex"
Bessboro still used as contact center with the same cruelty to mothers and children.Searches, etc and most awful abuse. Still all hidden under the use of "law."
Money changed hands for babies sold to UK too.Adoptees found this in their files.
Adoption was a social experiment in which babies born to unmarried mothers were taken at birth and given to strangers for adoption. It was claimed to be in the best interests of the child, who would be protected from the slur of illegitimacy and would have a better life in the adoptive family. Adoption enabled infertile married couples to have a family, and the State saved money on its welfare bill.
Forced Adoption is on its way back to Ireland though.
note the adverts for fostering everywhere!
Yes Jack, here we are full circle selling children for money.
Ireland HSE paid 28 million euros to UK fostering in a year. I need to check it was 2012. So all that money going out of Ireland, all made at the expense of Irish children - again.
Have you seen how lucrative the fostering business is for foster carers? for the same child?
it is always other people's children and how can they be more loved???????????????
