May i ask what difference was there in Ireland from War time Nazi Germany to the nuns who ran mother and baby homes across Ireland ....In the concentration camps they gassed the Jews removed the gold from there teeth dug trenches and buried the dead in mass graves....Mean while in Ireland the children who died in the mother and baby homes in Ireland was wrapped in a rag no coffins and buried in mass graves after being classed as spawns of Satan........Castlepollard a prime example the work men drove nails into the walls still visible to this day so as to give an indication on how many died, nails have fallen out but loads still remain Sean Ross Abbey there is no nails no markers no grave stones no nothing except the eerie feeling you are walking on bones. Bessboro is anybody's guess as it was the longest opened and running........Some babies were sent to the Royal college of surgeons for dissection in the name of science while others were used as lab rats in clinical trials better known as the vaccine trials ,.Yet to date 2013 we the survivors have not yet heard or had an apology our Minister for children Francis Fitzgerald sits and nods her head with the nodding dog syndrome..and still fails to address the abuse that happened in these places and refer to us and our birth mothers as historical...............We need a open and transparent and analytic report done free from government and the shadow of church as both are guilty as each other in the crimes committed church and state funded abuse .........................What is needed is open adoption .What we were was forced adoption as no other choice was there, unlike to day the unmarried mother has state backing and the right to keep rear and love her child .....Neither church or government had any right in Banishing 2,500 known banished babies sent abroad to US and future a field what rights did they have to take upon its self to decide these children must be banished as Irish citizens and sent like lepers to foreign lands . Yet to date no effort has being made either by church or state so that they can return to see there home land of Eire.....This has being a long history lesson in Irish abuse we have had industrial schools Reformatories just to name a few we have had report after report done costing millions the last of being the McAleese Report into the Magdalene laundries yet today Sept 2013 the women from the laundries are still waiting to be compensated this is a disgrace .We are the last in the history lesson so its time to open the last chapter and get justice for the mother and children affected by that era in forgotten Ireland.

What if black people were NOT be entitled to their birth certs?
What if gay people were NOT be entitled to their medical records?
What if people with Special Needs w
What if all Travelers babies who died had to be surrendered for medical research and routine dissection for training purposes?
Are you shocked at such politically incorrect language and extreme right wing ideology in this day and age?
Don't worry; just replace the words, Black, Gay, Special Needs and Traveler with "Adopted" and that's perfectly acceptable for the 50,000 adoptees living in Ireland past and present.
50,000 people classified as second class citizens and "illegitimate", and denied basic human and civil rights contrary to the Human Rights conventions of the European Union and the United Nations and the Constituation of Ireland.
The Irish Adoption Industry is the last dirty little secret of Holy Catholic Ireland.
And the Adoption Machine is also by far the worse of all the secrets. Babies and children were exported like livestock; rented out for drug experiments like lab rats, and murdered by the cold-blooded with-holding of basics like proper food, medical treatment, and medical equipment, from their terrified single mothers who were often the victims of rape and incest.
From 1948 to 1973, at least 2,132 babies and young children were effectively sold to rich American Catholics by the nuns with the assistance of the Minister for External Affairs, Eamon De Valera, who illegally issued passports on the orders of Archbishop John McQuaid and the nuns.This was child trafficking on an industrial scale.
From 1960 to 1973, in the 3 Sacred Heart run Mother & Baby Homes,there were at least 4 trials of experimental and/or modified vaccines carried out by a state employed Professor of medicine and a Doctor on behalf of the Borris Wellcome Foundation (now a part of GlaxoSmithKline). These trials were carried out on control groups of babies up to 18 months old who were held in the M&B homes instead of being adopted. These monstrous trials were in direct contravention of the Constitution, the International CODEX guidelines, and the Doctor’s own Hippocratic oaths. The Nuremburg Code issued during the trials of Nazi war criminals to prevent the evil experiments of Nazi Doctors such as Josef Mengele ever re-occurring, was simply ignored by the Irish church and state. For thirteen years, the state, religious orders and the Borris Wellcome foundation (now part of GlaxoSmithKline) conspired to turn between 200 and 300 babies and children into
human lab rats in the three Sacred Heart M&B homes and other institutions.
After the trials, the conspirators simply walked away. The babies were adopted
out without their new adoptive parents being informed of the trials and without any form of monitoring or after-care whatsoever.
Between 1940 and 1965, from the fourth major Mother & Baby Home, St. Patricks, and its sister hospital, Saint Kevins in Dublin, the bodies of at least 460 dead babies were “donated” for routine dissection practice by medical students and/or research, to all the major medical teaching institutions in the state, including Trinity College Dublin, UCD medical school and The College of Surgeons.
In both the vaccine trials and the “donations” of bodies, consent was neither sought from, nor granted by, either natural or adoptive parents. Nor were they even told the truth about their children, living or dead.
Most shocking and disturbing of all is the mortality figures for the babies of single mothers both inside and outside of the High Walls of the Adoption Machine. It is in these horrific mortality rates that the influence and the consequences of the church’s iron grip on Irish civil society can be seen most clearly. Since 1922, the mortality rates for babies of single mothers has run considerably higher than the national average. In the years 1923 to 1929 inclusive, infant mortality rates for illegitimate babies ran at about five times the national average for legitimate babies. In 1930, 60 of the 120 babies born in Sean Ross Abbey died and during the 1930s, mortality rates ran at approximately 4 times the national average. By 1948, John Cunningham, Professor of obstetrics and gynecology at UCD, stated that the annual national infant mortality rates were 47 per 1000 babies born within marriage (4.7%) and 147 per 1000 babies born outside marriage (14.7%), over three times the rate. He also stated that this was not a problem.
In the 3 Sacred Heart run Mother and Baby Homes, there are so called "Angels Plots" which contain the bodies of between 3,000 to 4,000 buried without birth certs, death certs, coffins, baptisms or names, in unmarked or barely marked graves.
Fianna Fail did nothing in all their years in power during the Celtic Tiger, to corrrect the injustice their founder Eamon De Valera inflicted on tens of thousands of Irish citizens. Fine Gael and particularly Ministers Francis Fitzgerald and Alan Shatter promised the sun, moon and stars to the Adoptee community during their time in oppostion, and have completly failed to act on their promises since assuming office over a year and a half ago.
