Spain's Lost Babies
How much are children worth to you - especially your own child?!
In recent news.....
Spanish society has been shaken by allegations of theft of thousands of babies by nuns, priests and doctors, which started under Franco and continued up the 1990's. More then 900 cases are being investigated but new cases are still coming to light - lawyers say that the total could reach 300,00.
There have been meetings for people affected by the scandal who have never recovered from losing their first-born, even nearly over 40 years ago. Mothers thought their children were dead and buried but are now learning that they are alive and well and living in Spain. They were believed to be crazy but now, as this information comes to light, they are proven not mad and are amongst many other similar women, experiencing the same feelings.
Is this possible in todays civilisation? - Could you give a child up for adoption? - Could you be be a surrogate mother?
