Ban forced adoption and save £millions

Local authorities receive financial incentives for getting children
adopted – FACT.
If forced adoption was outlawed, the money for these incentives
would no longer need to be provided.
This however would result in more children being in care – which
costs money…  But hundreds, if not thousands of children in care
have been taken from innocent families and should never have been
taken into care in the first place.
If children were taken into care based on evidence-based harm only
(in the same way as in a criminal trial,) the number of children
being taken into care would drop dramatically.   Such children who
have not been proved to have been hurt should then be returned to
their parents.  The care system is currently bulging at the seams
and the government is paying out massive amounts of money for
foster carers needlessly.
Time and money is wasted on taking children into care
unnecessarily. This DESTROYS families and CREATES child abuse
(emotional harm from being taken away from loving family) where
there was none to begin with.
At the same time, these injustices are being allowed to carry on
due to the Family Courts being held in secret.  Family Courts
should be open and have a jury, as in a Criminal Court.

Making these 3 changes alone would save the government millions of
pounds every year:

1. Ban Forced Adoption
2. Children to only be taken into care if it is proved by way of
evidence (as in a criminal trial) that the child has been abused.
3. Family Courts to be open and have a jury, (as in a criminal
court.)

These changes would make the child protection system far more
effective, children would be safer and more children and families
would benefit than they do now
