At first when I was told by people that they thought that Social Services were driven by a desire to increase adoption, hence they would take more children into care to get them adopted, I did not believe this.
Having spent a bit more time on the issue, having noted that when Downs Syndrome children are born Social Services disappear, having noted the use of the phrase "adoptable commodity" by social workers to describe children, having noted the flimsy basis upon which children are taken into care, it now seems quite clear that children are taken into care in order to get them adopted. That is not to say that children are not taken into care to protect them, but some are taken into care purely to have them adopted.
I already have the evidence of child protection procedures being used to force children into dangerous medical research. I am working to find out the numbers that died or were brain damaged as a result.
I think progress is being made on opening up the system to scrutiny. However, given that children are advertised for adoption on websites it is clear that the secrecy in the system is there not to protect the children, but to protect the professionals.
