Adoption Apology. To the Leaders of all the  political parties : to apologise for past unethical adoption practices

Why this is important

No woman today would expect to have a baby taken away from her just because she is not married. But this is what happened to thousands of women for about four decades, from the 1950s right up until the 80s. Those who saw the film ‘Philomena’ may think this only happened in Ireland; but it happened here too in England, as well as Scotland, Wales and Northern Ireland. Advice and support were not given, many women were harshly treated in Mother and Baby homes, and many of us never had any more children because of the stress of this first loss.

We ask everyone who can relate to this grief, to sign our petition, so that at last we will get some recognition of what we have gone through, and some acknowledgement of what this did to us. Many women are still too ashamed to speak out about it, and so continue to suffer in silence and still experience long term post–traumatic stress. We need the public recognition which a cross-party Parliamentary apology would give us. Please sign our petition
