Exposing the REAL Child Traffickers: EVERY Foster or Adopted Child is Wanted by Someone – The Child Welfare System Needs to be Abolished
9News out of Denver, Colorado has done some good investigative reporting recently on the status of legal child trafficking in their state, known as the "Child Welfare System." With access to both federal funds as well as state funding, it is much more lucrative for the State to place children in foster care and make them available for (adoption) trafficking than it is to let the child's own family take care of them. While this is a problem in every state in the U.S., it is apparently especially bad in Colorado according to a new report published by the National Coalition for Child Protection Reform. 9News in Denver interviewed one local family who exemplifies this problem, as they have tried to adopt their own niece, who has already spent 2 years with them, but the State wants to place their niece with foster parents who are not related to the family instead. Statistics compiled over the years on the Child Welfare system clearly show that low income families, who are overwhelmingly minorities (Blacks, Natives, and Latinos), have a much higher rate of their children being put into the Child Welfare System than wealthier families, who are also the ones that make up the bulk of foster and adoptive parents, and are overwhelmingly White middle class Christian Conservatives. 85% or more (depending upon the state) of these children are removed from their homes, NOT because they were being abused, but because they were removed under the more broad term of "neglect," which has a wide range of interpretation, such as "medical neglect" when a parent refuses to comply with a doctor's opinion for medical services, such as vaccines. Other published studies have shown that even when the children have "troubled parents", which the vast majority of the time is defined when the parents are labeled as "drug abusers," (which almost always means illegal drugs such as marijuana, but NEVER prescription drugs, the choice of drugs for most middle class parents), those children of these "troubled parents" still do MUCH better in their "troubled" homes than they do in Foster Care, which is the nation's #1 pipeline for child sex trafficking. This is where the REAL child trafficking occurs in this country, and the only solution to end this child trafficking is to abolish the Child Welfare System. What kind of twisted, corrupt system exists to provide funding for strangers to parent other people's children, but almost nothing for biological families to keep their own children?
