Laws on ‘forced adoption’ cause controversy in Europe, says leading judge

Parents Rights Blog

A leading judge says he is “acutely conscious” of concerns voiced in parts of Europe about the “forced adoption” of children in England and Wales.

Sir James Munby, the most senior family court judge in England and Wales, says English law allows children to be adopted without their parents’ consent – and that practice is “unusual” in Europe.

He says there is “no shirking” the fact that the English approach has given “rise to controversy” abroad – particularly in Europe.

But Sir James says there can be no suggestion that the domestic law of England and Wales is incompatible with the UK’s international obligations or its obligations under the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms.

  1. Sir James Munby has stated the law quite clearly .He says that adoption without parental consent of a baby against the will of the mother is probably the worst thing that could happen to her since the abolition of capital punishment. and that”Adoption is a last resort when nothing else will do”. With respect to this very learned judge that simply cannot be true as in France and most other European countries they find other”last resorts” and have no need for forced adoption.There seems no reason why the UK cannot do the same .

  2. And many a slip ‘twixt cup and lip, but the wheels are turning, admittedly with grinding slowness, in the right direction.

      There have probably been far many more add options the ones that are not known about and that is why it’s only just coming to people’s attention. It’s probably just the tip of the iceberg and there must be many people in the social care system running scared. I don’t think anyone knows just how big a problem it really is and when the sadistics are finally outed, there will be many a shocked person who have been oblivious to all this
