Claims blocking adoption for child abusers is a ‘breach of their human rights’
With Theresa May on shaky ground as the current Conservative leader and British Prime Minister, details of an executive order she made that would give more rights to child abusers, has come to light.
May had ordered a review of current legislation that would prevent pedophiles from adopting children claiming that it was a “breach of their human rights.”
The order spurred on by the late Helen Reece who was a reader in family law at the London School of Economics, who supported the then-Home Secretary’s policy on relaxing the law for child rapists because “they have the right to build a family unit like everybody else.”
Speaking about the proposed changed, leading legal academic Reece said that blocking sex offenders from working with children was also “unfair.”
She also stated that rape victims should no longer be granted anonymity in trials against sex offenders as it gives defendants a “disadvantage.”One of May’s arguments for the change in policy was that although pedophilia is on the rise, the number of pedophiles that murder children is “still quite low.”
