The UK’s forced adoption scandal was a state-sanctioned abuse by Gabby Hinsliff

WChicken Ann Kane gave birthThe midwives rejected him for a few days because of the pain. That way, they told her, she would remember it and learn to be so bad again. Behaving like an animal in labor, denying the most basic compassion and respect, was only part of the punishment she earned for getting pregnant from a marriage at the age of just 17 years. The hospital discharged her without any follow-up care, as if she had never been born. But the most serious part of the story is that she also went home without her child.

For Kane, there is an unknown number of unmarried British women who were forced to hand over their newborns between the 150’s and 1970’s, who are now Boris Jason apologizes On behalf of the governments of the day. But perhaps most importantly, they want to admit that they did not give it to their children happily. Some were told that if they loved their children they would be raised by a respectable married couple, not in the shadow of illegitimacy.

Instead of informing them about the financial support they should receive, they were warned that having a child would be a big problem for their family. And while some agreed to adopt under this kind of repression, some said the forms were signed on their behalf only for adoption by parents or so-called “moral welfare workers”. In fact they became an unnecessary human production line of children for adoption by couples who were more qualified based on the merits of the wedding ring. Grief for mothers should be lifelong, and for many it was handed down to a generation when their children grew up to a comprehensible age and worried about what had happened.

The repressive morality pervading religion is a clear indication of how such unimaginable events could have happened. Pregnant teens, such as Kane, were sent by their perverted parents to a church-run mother and child home to hide them from neighbors, and often adopted through church-run agencies; He is the head of the Catholic Church in England and Wales He has already apologized What he called “hurt” is because of the agencies working in his name. Yet the long history of the use of weapons against women in the name of organized religion is not only the washing of the secret magda, but only half the explanation for the cruelty to women giving birth in British NHS hospitals, who were different from women. Other mothers This was an effective state-sanctioned abuse by the state, and in a week when most of the country is in a state of turmoil rather than a recent failure, it does immediate lessons.

When it comes to Ireland Taosich recently apologized For the “deep generation” of wrongdoing done to survivors in Irish mother and child homes, a public investigation revealed horrific cruelty, with some responding with rage. They were not told to blame “society” or the culture of the time; They wanted a forensic examination of the names, audit trails, government decisions and procedures that allowed this to happen. British mothers are barred from conducting public research, but seek to recognize that this is fundamentally a state failure, some Curious understands Probably the best.

Surprisingly, the teenager who was screaming when the doctor made her a nurse after giving birth to her, then became a Labor MP and finally – as Minister of Health under Gordon Brown – advocated dignity and compassion in the health service. But it is a principle that is very broad in public life.

At the heart of almost every account of the public scandal I have read are individuals who have been somewhat humiliated in the eyes of the authorities; Whose feelings are considered meaningless.

This, in particular, often accounts for how there are unimaginable breeds of contempt Police officers gathered Through an interview with Girl S, the victim of child sexual abuse in Rochdale was gang-raped, whose case was initially dismissed because she considered her problem: hurried, damaged, not a credible witness. It’s there Shocking stories About the treatment of Windsor Generation in the hands of the Home Office, and how dangerous accounts are due to the Granfell Tower fire Residents’ security fears were allayed.

And it was hidden behind Dominic Cummings’ account Boris Johnson It has been alleged that Kovid was “only 0 years old” and that his life was in short supply. The nature of who is and is not counted may change with the passing decades, but the text remains the same; The most frightening thing is that with the failure of the state, they start treating every citizen with the same treatment as they did.
