Suicide Rate Up To Five Times Higher Among Mothers Whose Children Enter Foster Care


It is too easy to compare ordinary mothers, fathers, and parents in general, with those parents who have historically foisted their children in to the sole care of nannies, nursemaids and laterly – au pairs; and so decide there is a fundamental lack of concern among those parents who suffer so much when robbed of their parenthood.

It is a clear breakdown in trust, and in the fundamental rights of parents to bring up the children they have conceived and borne.

Researching Reform

New research has emerged which confirms that women who have their children removed from them and placed into foster care, are more likely to commit suicide than mothers whose children are not fostered.

An article in The Conversation written by Elizabeth Wall-Wieler, a PhD student at the University of Manitoba, Canada, highlights key research which shows an increased mortality rate for mothers who lose their children to the care system.

Wall-Wieler explains that while mothers whose children are taken into care sometimes have underlying health conditions, the studies take those pre-existing conditions into account, meaning that the data is directly linked to the impact of losing a child to the care system.

The first study, published in December 2017 in the Canadian Journal of Psychiatry, was co-produced by Wall-Wieler, and examines suicide attempts and suicide completions among mothers whose children were placed in care. The researchers discovered that…

Poll Offers Shocking Revelation On Why Parents Record Child Protection Meetings


Using modern recording methods can sometimes prove a lifeline in proving the truth when combatting officialdom.

Researching Reform

After this site revealed that law firms and councils coerced parents into signing illegal documents forcing them to give up their right to record child welfare meetings, a new poll asking parents why they choose to record offers a shock revelation.

The poll, created on Facebook yesterday, asked parents who were going through the family courts whether they had recorded a communication during their case, and if they had, what the reason was for making that recording. The poll initially offered the following five responses:

  • The professional seemed to have an agenda
  • I wanted to be able to read/listen/ see it again at my own pace
  • The professional had made errors in past reports/ communications
  • The professional was breaking the law
  • Other – please add your comment below

Facebook allows posters to add more options to its polls. A parent added the following sixth option to our poll, which went…

Washington’s birthday. Two guns were fired at sunrise. At 8 o’clock the vessel was decorated with flags. The U. S. Union Jack was hoisted at the bow, the U.S. Mail, English Union Jack, French Tri-color, and Chilean at the foremast; the Mexican and New Grenadian at the missen mast; and the stars and stripes at the stern. A single pennon was exhibited on the mainmast for an hour or two; then the Union Jack and a flag bearing the name of the vessel were hoisted. We arrived at Acapulco about 11 o’clock. A…

Maurice Kirk: Police intercept Rule 39 letter to prison doctor, + more 07 Dec. 2018 + archive


An unbelievable saga of lies and deception by the South Wales Police continues. This is the UK of 2018 on the eve of 2019.

VICTIMS OF THE STATE

Received: Maurice [still on hunger strike for many weeks] tells that the prison doctor, who has had many dealings with Maurice before in previous totally unjust sentences spoke with him and offered to contact his family, as communications to his family are greatly restricted for Maurice – hardly legal, but nevertheless happening right now, and as MK states in his note below “..but after writing Celia’s name and telephone number ‘in house’ South Wales police stopped the Rule 39 letter to her leaving the wing until 5.30pm deliberately as, by then, Dr. Marnell would have gone home” – such are the dirty deeds of these public servants who salaries are paid by the taxpayer. The message continues to say a “turnkey” confirmed to MK the following morning that the S Wales police would have read the letter “at the HMP Security Office“. He goes on to…

EXCLUSIVE: Child Protection Professionals Intimidating Parents Into Signing Illegal Undertakings


Governments still get away with much that would shut-down most other organisations.

Researching Reform

This site has learned that law firms and councils are unlawfully coercing parents into signing informal agreements which forbid families from recording child protection meetings.

Clauses in an agreement asking a parent not to record conversations or exchanges with child welfare professionals are illegal, and are sometimes referred to in family proceedings as unlawful undertakings. Domestic undertakings set out in agreements are very rarely enforceable, and parents are not under any obligation to sign them. If you have signed an agreement prepared by a local authority or lawyer asking you to set aside your legal right to record communications in child welfare proceedings, you can withdraw your consent at any time.

This site has seen a copy of an agreement drawn up by a council which clearly states that the parent named in the document may not record any phone calls or meetings within their home or the local authority’s…
