The price of Catholicism could be a life... or 300,000 of them

In a shocking expose that ranks of all things could overshadow the pedophile priest scandals, it has been revealed that the Catholic church, along with the Spanish government, stole up to 300,000 newborn babies from their mothers, and trafficked them around the world to whom they considered 'better Catholics'.

Up to 300,000 Spanish babies were stolen from their parents and sold for adoption over a period of five decades, a new investigation reveals.
The children were trafficked by a secret network of doctors, nurses, priests and nuns in a widespread practice that began during General Franco’s dictatorship and continued until the early Nineties.
Hundreds of families who had babies taken from Spanish hospitals are now battling for an official government investigation into the scandal.
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.  Daily Mail
To what price is it to be a follower of a religious denomination to have priests, nuns, and a pontiff determine whether you are worthy of possessing and raising a child?
