Church stole and sold 300,000 babies

This is not a bad joke. This is the reality of how religion poisons people’s minds beyond any level of sanity.

Over 50 years, the Catholic Church in Spain stole up to 300,000 babies and sold them. And told their heart-broken mothers that their babies were dead.

From Daily Mail:

Many mothers who gave birth there claim that when they asked to see their child after being told it had died, they were shown a baby’s corpse that appeared to be freezing cold.
The BBC programme shows photographs taken in the Eighties of a dead baby kept in a freezer, allegedly to show grieving mothers.

Why did the Catholic Church do this? Because the priests said those mothers were “unfit”.

Several mothers say they were told their first-born children had died during or soon after they gave birth.

But the women, often young and unmarried, were told they could not see the body of the infant or attend their burial.
In reality, the babies were sold to childless couples whose devout beliefs and financial security meant that they were seen as more appropriate parents.

[…]

There are also many mothers who have maintained for years that their babies did not die – and were labelled “hysterical” – but are now discovering that their child has probably been alive and brought up by somebody else all this time.’

[…]

Experts believe the cases may account for up to 15 per cent of the total adoptions that took place in Spain between 1960 and 1989.

In some cases, babies’ graves have been exhumed, revealing bones that belong to adults or animals. Some of the graves contained nothing at all.

  1. Just vile. I’ve read about this in a couple of places, but I’ve never seen original source quotes. I don’t even know what to say.
