ABC Australia examines Victoria’s Past Adoptions

 

The Victorian Government has formally apologised to all those affected by the forced adoption practices in the state between the 1950s and 1970s.

The apology follows a landmark inquiry by the Federal Senate, which found up to 250,000 babies were forcibly taken from their mothers, who were mostly young and unmarried.

 

Premier Ted Baillieu, Opposition leader Daniel Andrews and Nationals leader Peter Ryan addressed a joint sitting of Parliament as about 400 invited guests watched on.

Mr Baillieu described the practice as wrong, disgraceful, ill-conceived and in some cases, illegal.

“As one, we say to you all we are sorry,” he told Parliament.

“What was done cannot now be undone, but we do hope this official recognition and apology lifts the burden of secrecy, and brings peace and relief.”

Mr Baillieu says as a parent, he can barely imagine the heartache of never seeing his child asleep or missing the first day of school.

“Today is about the Parliament apologising for the trauma, pain and loss so many experienced and continue to experience to this day as a result of flawed and harmful government policy,” he said.

BEATING IN HOSPITAL US

QUOTE FROM YOUTUBE..As a courtesy to the family I am available for interview as a family
spokesman and can also arrange interviews of Robert Leone’s parents.
Robert is still incarcerated.Thomas Jefferson said:

“The price of freedom is eternal vigilance.”
I add to this:
“The battle for freedom is never won, and is never lost.
The battle for freedom always continues.
It is never too late, and it is never soon enough, to defend freedom.
No matter how enslaved we are, we always have hope.
No matter how free we are we are never safe.
NOTHING EVER LIMITS THE GOVERNMENT, EXCEPT THE PEOPLE.
Any generation that fails to defend freedom will lose it.
The next generation will have to shed blood to gain it back” John Perna

Growing older & left in your Urine & Poo

Common Practice In Age Care homes when you have incontinence & you will have incontinence with Staph infection.

‘’One of Australia’s highest profile hospitals has launched an investigation into claims an elderly woman was left in a corridor for six hours and told to urinate in her bed.

The New South Wales Health Minister has labelled the allegations “shocking” after revealed the case of the 89-year-old woman who was taken to St Vincent’s Hospital’s emergency department last week with a serious staph infection.’’
