What is the main difference between “then” (the past) and now?
Well in the past mothers were pressured by parents and/or doctors to sign adoption
forms and so lost their babies.
Now however it is much much worse ! Mothers usually refuse to sign anything so they are dragged through the courts and however hard they fight to keep their babies they usually lose because their babies are said to be at risk of future emotional harm !
How can the UK tolerate such cruelty to both mother and child?
