Dossier indicates drive to increase adoptions is punitive for low-income families and alternatives exist
The research found a 65% rise in the number of children that are separated from their parents since 2001.
The push to increase adoption in England is punishing low-income women, who are increasingly losing their children due to poverty, according to research by Legal Action for Women.
A report to be presented at the House of Commons on Wednesday contains new research from the legal service and campaign group, which suggests the policy of increasing adoption has not reduced the number of children in care – as it was intended to – but has increased the number of those separated from their parents.
A federal class action lawsuit filed out of Southern California states that the Riverside County Department of Public Social Services has kidnapped “thousands” of children without warrant or reason.
According to the suit, which makes mention of several social workers and investigators, Riverside’s operation “makes a habit” of kidnapping young children.
Speaking with the Courthouse News Service, the Plaintiffs’ attorney, Shawn McMillan, said that he “uncovered an alarming trend” when investigating similar cases in the area the year prior.
“County child welfare agencies regularly subvert the constitutional rights of parents and children by seizing children from their parents when there is no danger to the child, and in fact no need to seize the child at all,” McMillan told Courthouse News. “The class action is designed to address a procedural problem. They [Riverside County social workers] as a matter of course don’t get warrants before seizing kids.”
There are no statistics that will ever help you understand what it feels like to be a child abused by the child protection system. No one really watches out for these children they are all lost within a world ruled by narcissist, pedophiles and do-gooders.
A child removed from a home of poverty [aka neglect], is thrown into a broken system where true abuse becomes a life they can not escape. Even when the child is allowed visits from parents and family who can witness the physical marks of abuse - it is still ignored by arrogant workers who believe the parents are incompetent and their reports are retaliation.
What about the children that were ripped and torn away from their family? Why are we getting pushed into the darkness? Why? Why? Why?
Are there any ANSWERS? NO! there are no answers for us kids and I will not stand down anymore.
I have been in care for 11 years now and I have had the worst bringing up then I would have had living with my parents ….. I have been pushed around, pushed to the back, put down and I have my rights thrown out the window I’m here to tell everyone that this needs to stop it needs justice!!!!
*** ADOPTION CHILDREN ... WHERE DO THEY REALLY COME FROM? FIRSTLY, DoCS aren't damned if they do or damned if they don't remove children. They just prefer to take #kids from #parents who are easy targets - usually the ones who would rely on state funded #LegalAid to TRY and keep their kids.
They routinely choose to ignore kids who are being abused - even placing kids with #paedophiles - in order to perpetuate that myth that only the really abused kids are taken. And mostly it works. And yes, 80%. This is based on many years auditing casefiles for #compliance with #law - to ensure that only children who are being #abused or #neglected are removed. Alecomm hasn't audited one single case yet where #docs workers haven't broken the law. Not one in over a decade.
Abstract: This article reports on a study of Children's Court files relating to completed applications for variation of care orders (section 90 applications) in three specialised Children's Courts in New South Wales. All files that could be located for completed applications were reviewed and nonidentifying data was recorded. The study attempted to examine the type of applications, the characteristics of applicants and the outcomes of the applications. One hundred and seventeen applications were reviewed: almost half of these were made by the then Department of Community Services (DoCS), and about the same proportion of applications were made by parents. After the section 90 applications were determined there was an increase in care orders allocating parental responsibility to the Minister for Community Services with 73% of the children placed under the care of the minister to age 18.
Police, child protection, family court's, criminal courts, the legal system, our government ... They all protect predators and perpetrators. Hundreds of thousands of stories are emerging Australia wide and yet the general public still don't get it!! No one is exempt, unless you have money to buy your way out!!!
Innocent people are played every single day!! False reports are made, evidence hidden, and when evidence is available it is kept under lock and key!!! Innocent people being forced to plead guilty to crimes they never committed, their children taken under false pretense, and abused in a system that proclaims to provide a better life!! A better life for who?? The money making fraudsters who pocket billions of Australian tax dollars per year?? Or our children??
This is currently what our children endure !! Tell me if this is the better life you all envisioned?? Full of beatings, rape, murder ?? Homelessness, hunger, with no job prospects, little education, no love or true support ?? And ten times the chance of dying ...
Court was AGAIN adjourned at Broadmeadow Children's Court in Newcastle. If you are able, please front up and stand in peaceful solidarity for this broken family who are crying out for their baby.
There has not been a single finding supporting FACS' ridiculous claims of malnourishment presented to the courts or Marc and Cini. In the 3 weeks since Chase vanished from his mothers sight without a trace, there has only been adjournment after adjournment.
Today it has become crystal clear how much influence the medical establishment has in Australia. The medical establishment showed it true reach into our society. Where are the rights of the parents gone in this country, when parents are not allowed to medically treat their child in a way they see fit. A way that involves a plant, which has proven all over the world to work with their child’s conditions.
These parents have seen the improvements their little boy went through after he started using medicinal marijuana. Anyone can see the improvements Chase has shown over the last 6 months. There is no denying.
A ladies ex-husband sexually assaulted their girls - and went to jail. Now he's out and CatholiCare and Child Protection NSW and the ICL are all stating that they are going to not only allow him to have contact with his victims but force the youngest son to have a relationship with him, without knowing that his father raped his sisters.
We really need to get control freaks out of our government. They're supposed to be public servants not Lords and masters. As someone who has suffered the irrational and corrupt way that child services deals with innocent parents I can say with confidence that unless your child is being starved, beaten, hog tied and kept in a dungeon they are better off with you than our crooked child agencies.
The "Parenting agreement" is in fact, a "Childcare Agreement / Voluntary Foster Care Contract", and is not really a Voluntary Agreement if it can be forfeited by court orders.
The Department of Community Services outsourced the Out of Home Care contracts to the Department of Education and Communities. The Department of Education and Communities represent and regulate all childcare providers.
Communities which is a part of the Department of Education Communities also known as Family and Children Services provide support through programs and childcare contracted by the Department of Community services formerly known as Social services (DOCS/DHS).
Children's Charter of Rights for all Australian states / territories attached to this article. Family and Community Services NSW state : "The Charter of Rights outlines the general rights and responsibilities of every child and young person in out-of-home-care. The NSW Children and Young Persons (Care and Protection) Act 1998 requires that these rights are supported by carers and caseworkers." BUT you will notice that none of these charters explains exactly what kids can do when they're rights are being breached ...
