Queensland Anglican Church apologises to victims of forced adoption

On Friday the Anglican Diocese of Brisbane released a statement saying it was sorry, and acknowledging the church’s role in forced adoptions.

In the apology, Brisbane Archbishop Phillip Aspinall said mothers had suffered shame, isolation and humiliation while in the care of the church, resulting in significant grief and loss.

“We deeply regret that we did not always provide the care, information, protection and support which these mothers, fathers and children should have received,” Dr Aspinall said.
