Apology urged for forced adoptions in Australia
February 28, 2012
Catholic Health Australia has apologized for its role in the forced adoption of the children, and called for a national apology for the practice.
Martin Laverty, the head of Catholic Health Australia, argues that a national apology is necessary for the “healing process” in the country’s recovery from the forced adoptions. His group also suggested counseling for the women whose children were taken from them, and a commission to resolve remaining grievances arising from the adoptions.
