I came across this article from Yahoo News about an investigation into forced adoptions. It seems to be pretty common knowledge that this happened a lot in the 1940s – 60s, but apparently it happened in a number of countries as late as the 1980s. If that isn’t shocking enough, the article shares how some of these mothers described their experiences. The most common description was “sad,” but there are many other, more devastating descriptions, such as “horrifying,” “tragic,” “barbaric,” and even “soul rape.” Check out the whole article here.
