Denise Robertson said:"I was scared because it seemed so cold so remorseless. I can't understand why the public are not rising up about what is going on. We know this is happening. We have talked about it. Fran's an example. The message that is going out there to young girls is "do not tell" because it will be held against you.
"I cannot understand why people are not getting behind John Hemming's campaign. We have had so much sympathy, quite rightly, for the McCanns, but I cannot see the difference between a child being abducted by a stranger and being abducted by the state. To me the loss, the pain is identical.
"I think that the family court always without exception takes the word of social services and rubber stamps what is put in front of them. On this programme some while ago I appealed to hear from someone who had been to the family court who had had the situation reversed to write to me I have not had one letter yet i have had letters piled like this from people in the same position but are gagged because the baby's in the world. Once the baby's in the world we can't help her because there will be a gag put on her and even when people write to me they are breaking the law. This cannot be right. This is acountry where you are innocent until proven guilty and I cannot undersatnd why mothers and grandmothers with their babies on their knees are not saying that we have to write to our MP we have to write to a newspaper.
"Some babies must be taken away because it is right and proper.
"I've got a grandmother in touch with me at the moment who she has been allowed to adopt the three older children who are tots, the pretty blond baby is going to be adopted. Why she is either fit to take them or she isn't. She wants to keep her family together. She is either a fit person or she is not. To say she is fit for the ones she might have difficulty in adopting, but this one she isn't fit to look after. That can't be right. "
