Child protection in England: In the best interest of the child?

Florence Bellone
Stealing or buying babies from vulnerable mothers to give them to childless people is one of the oldest human activities. From frustrated individuals to churches, charities and states all over the world, there is a history of playing foul with the destiny of new-born babies. Older children were also removed from poor families hoping for them a promise of education and career. They were most often facing forced labour, sexual abuse or medical experiments.
