I kept asking for my baby and they kept telling me “no”

'I kept asking for my baby and they kept telling me 'no' 'C Cole is one of an unknown number of mostly young, unmarried women in NSW between the 1950s and 1970s whose children were taken from them in what is commonly referred to as ”forced adoption”. ”

Ms Cole was given a range of drugs against her will during her stay in hospital, including mind-altering barbiturates and Stilboestrol, to dry her milk. She was never told she had a right to revoke her consent to adoption in the weeks after the birth. ”
