child snatching in the UK
From a mothers’s side
By Vivienne Black
In more recent months, with the help of some outspoken brave people and the use of the Internet, one would assume that we would, here in the UK, have made some progress , or changes to our family court proceedings, with on going horror stories of late, seem to be more abundant than anyone was aware of. Now, it would seem, with so many people coming forward with their own personal story, surely Britain’s secret courts should simply be abolished once and for all
I have read so many stories of innocent families being torn apart and mothers having babies snatched from them literally after giving birth. I find my tears of sympathy and bewilderment are turning to anger and frustration as to why this is still going on. There have been so many parents who’s babies have been stolen, without any kind of court order or any signed documents by any judge or otherwise, then surely it is illegal, as well as ill moral and why can’t the parents simply refuse to hand over their baby? How will they manage to pry that child from a mother unwilling to hand over her child? Would this not be classed as assault? If there is no legal documentation, then this should be classed as kidnapping. A person has a right to defend their home in which ever means possible, if they feel threatened by burgers, they are by law, allowed to use which ever means possible to defend themselves and their home. So a mother should have a right in a maternal aspect, as well as physical, to be able to protect her child. I also think that there should be tight security at the hospitals safeguarding mothers whether or not their babies are bottle fed or nursed. There should be tight security to protect mothers who should not have to worry that a group of unauthorised strangers can simply walk into a hospital room and simply steal her child. If there is no legal right to take that child, then the same should be applicable in her refusing to hand over her baby to complete strangers with an obvious alteria motive. For what possible motive can there be to take a newborn baby away from a mother that is in a state of overwhelming emotion after giving birth and fatigue. For some new mothers, after spending considerably many long hours of discomfort during labour. To do this to any mother and causing her undue stress, is barbaric. There are no other words to describe this utterly diabolical , highly disturbing and unbelievable scenario. It is outrageous and has to be the ultimate worst nightmare for any mother and that is all it should be. A nightmare. At least she can return to reality and wake up knowing it was all a bad dream.
Is there a normal person on this earth that can actually try and imagine how this must feel? Can anyone try and feel their pain? Apart from the other mothers that have experienced this themselves, I don’t think anyone can take this in. I can only try and imagine the grief. The unimaginable fear.The shock alone must take a few days , even weeks for it to actually even penetrate or comprehend what has happened.
What of the after affects? Still dazed and confused and in a state of absolute panic to then be told you will never see your baby again and will not ever again, be this child’s mother. How do you cope with that? How can anyone cope with that? The truth is…
You can’t. You don’t and you won’t.
