Parents for Children: State 'cannot be trusted' to care for children17/10/2012 - 07:17:07
A number of groups are launching their campaigns today for a 'No' vote in the forthcoming Children's Referendum.
One such group, Parents for Children, has said it is unhappy that if a child is deemed to be at risk from his or her own parents, that under the proposed amendment, parents would be "powerless to defend children who are being failed by the State".
Parents for Children said the State "cannot be trusted" and the option should be there to let another family member, such as an aunt or uncle, care for the child instead.
Voters will go to the polls on the Children's Referendum in three weeks' time.
