Executive Summary of Human Rights Abuses identified in three documents submitted to Senate Inquiry
New South Wales, Sydney
The theft of 250,000 newborns and toddlers from their mothers whilst committing acts of torture to obtain them for the adoption market is scrutinised through the lens of International Human Rights and Natural Law. The Executive Summary was submitted to the Australian Human Rights Commission and was awarded 2012 Australian Human Rights Commission Award for best submission based on Human Rights Law to a government inquiry. It was also an overview of two other submissions submitted to the National Senate Inquiry into Forced Adoption: Commonwealth Population Policy and its Influence on state based adoption law and The Broken Bond – Research that clearly implicated the Commonwealth’s role in influencing state policy as it pertained to the forcible removal of newborns from unwed mothers. The Commonwealth Population Policy research was forwarded to David Templeman MP and Dr. Rachel Siewert and relevant others confidentially prior to their call for a Federal apology and the Federal Senate Inquiry.
