Desperate Refugees beg for adoption to save their children

Some refugee mothers held within Australia’s inhumane detention system have become so desperate they are begging Australian families to adopt their children to give them a better life.

They have become so desperate about the fate of their unborn babies and the plight of their children that they have called for Australian families to “save” their baby when its born by adoption

This is a shocking indictment on Australia’s treatment of its most vulnerable –  one can only hope that the mothers will be given the support they need so they can rear their own children in an appropriate environment  –  and one hopes that those in more powerful positions do NOT   once again take advantage of those in such a powerless situation – as was the case for most of the 20th century when unwed mothers were used like unpaid and forced surrogates – expected to birth children for the benefit of infertile married couples.
