The Baby Safe A Unique Way To Abandon Babies - Instead Of Dumping Them

Cape Town - A clinic is offering mothers who no longer want their babies a safe and anonymous way of handing over their little ones.

The Baby Safe is a non-profit organisation that has a unique way of getting moms to drop off their babies instead of dumping them.

“The safe itself is a mechanical box created by an engineer,” says the organisation’s Danielle Thomson.

“Once a baby is placed inside on the mattress, it magnetically seals shut and then through an installed sim card, it calls our on-call phone and two staff members immediately.

“We then fetch the baby within three minutes.”

Foster father jailed Friday for Sept. beating of girl, 3, in Lancaster

"To my dear Belle," Martin began, as he and his many supporters wept. "I'm very sorry, dear child. You were placed in my care and I failed you. I will forever hold myself accountable to you. I pray for you every day, that you will go on to live a long, happy life." These words from a child abuser. Who had supporters in the court proceedings to help him.

I am just disgusted by this, the child was only three years old and only in the home for ninety days before this monster enacted this violence against a little girl. Who would support that? I would not.

False Allegations Of Child Abuse Can End Up In Civil, Criminal, Or Juvenile Courts

The Jerry Sandusky criminal trial is over; the civil lawsuits are in active settlement mode. Undoubtedly, the entire country is more tuned into child abuse than it ever was. The National Conference of State Legislatures reports that about 105 bills on the reporting of suspected child abuse and neglect have been introduced in 2012 legislative sessions in 30 states and the District of Columbia.

More state interference in families will not protect children

For anyone familiar with how our “child protection” system too often works in practice, rather loud alarm bells might be rung by a Bill currently going through the Scottish Parliament that takes the state’s intervention in family life to a startling new level. Under the Children and Young People (Scotland) Bill, every child from birth will be given a “named person”, charged with keeping an eye on that child’s interests until it reaches adulthood.

Why French Kids Don't Have ADHD

ADHD A Measureable Disorder


Sorry, but due to my personal experience, I tend to disagree. The brain is an organ that is influenced by chemicals/hormones & the general biochemistry of the body just like any other organ of the body, thereby susceptible to disorders & diseases. As with Diabetes, diet can help to improve the disorder but cannot ultimately cure it, similarly, with ADHD being a disorder, diet is not a cure for ADHD. In my personal case, my son was never fed a diet of sugar, white flour products or any kind of artificial food.

Foster Kids Get More Psychiatric Drugs

Friday, May 24, 2013

A GOVERNMENT Accountability Report released this Thursday showed America’s foster children being prescribed powerful psychotropic drugs, at doses beyond what the Food and Drug Administration has approved. At a congressional hearing the same day, Thursday saw lawmakers discussing both the problems and possible solutions.

Obviously, those in foster care are more likely to have had elements of abuse or traumatic experiences during their upbringing, thus they are more likely to end up on medication, especially once they are labeled as

Liam Osborne Died In 2009 At 4 Years Old In Care of Babysitter - No Findings Against Babysitter Fiona Garth

A BABYSITTER had lied repeatedly about events surrounding the death of a child in her care but there was not enough evidence to say how the boy died or whether she was responsible, a coroner has found.

Liam Robert Osborne, 4, most probably died between 8.30pm and midnight on June 27, 2009, at the Claremont home of Fiona Maree Garth, coroner Stephen Carey found today.

Although Garth had admitted assaulting the boy and was jailed for nine months, his cause of death could not be

Dad Writes To School About Social Progression And Diversity Within The Community

Social progress, like beauty, is in the eye of the beholder.

For instance, we like to think that Australia is less racist than it was. Considering the heritage of terra nullius and the White Australia policy, there is some validity to that belief; after all, the Federation of Australia may have been founded on notions of egalitarianism and racism, but racism has since been superseded by multiculturalism.

A Life Lived In Fear Of Child Protection Industry Is A Life Half Lived

A link on the Facebook Group today came through with this petition. It says the petition has received one thousand signatures. When you look at the time since this legislation was introduced to the US to legalize kidnapping of children from their biological family, sixteen years have passed. Indeed thirteen years have passed since Senator Nancy Schaefer was murdered after she was pushing for DSS reform.

We are on a treadmill and we are like mice being breed for the purposes of this industry.
