← [UPDATE - BBC link added] 300,000 babies stolen from their parents - and sold for adoption: Haunting BBC documentary exposes 50-year scandal of baby trafficking by the Catholic church in Spain

Thanks Michael for your posts.

The numbers ARE unimportant. Some poster has come up with 16 sold babies per day. So what? Are you all assuming only one hospital? 16 hospitals in Spain means 1 baby a day. Not much to manage by the good nuns of the majority Catholic run hospitals that were in Spain. There are many more than 16 hospitals in Spain!!!

Yes, the same thing happened in Australia and in so many other places - and it is still going on. It is the Roman Catholic bloody church keeping its numbers up and selling the religion for god via babies into good catholic families.

Sheesh. I loathe and detest the Roman Catholic Church and all its grubby dealings. Don't split hairs over numbers for pity's sake. Spain has just funded (in May) Catholic Youth Day or whatever it is called to the tune of millions paid by Spaniards, against the stated wishes of a large minority in Spain while it is in the throes of the GFC.

Maybe this is all serendipitous or maybe it has been orchestrated and the timing is right. Or maybe whatever.

It is outrageous regardless of the numbers published. Outrageous!! I will be watching the BBC tonight at 9pm.

Angry (again!!) V
