Parallels between historical domestic and contemporary intercountry adoption
New South Wales, Sydney
The article describes the parallels between the inherent malpractice and abuse in historic Forced Adoption and contemporary Intercountry Adoption. It also critiques the pro adoption lobby's techniques to make adoption fashionable and its use as a default welfare measure rather than learning the lessons of the Black and White Stolen Generations and the damage done to families torn apart.
