“We take care of everything” is the phrase repeated thousands of times, in clinics and maternity wards, mothers and families to which they announced the death of her newborn, who later proved to have been given up for adoption. Some of those mothers and families bring their thrilling testimony in this book, whose author Francisco González de Tena, president of the Federation Coordinator X 24 (Associations of Victims for the Theft of Children in Spain) and vice president/spokesperson of the Collective Identity of the Canary islands, establishes this hypothesis of research: what it can promote to doctors, midwives and people close to the catholic Church to dealing with newborns?

It has been a valuable contribution to give out a huge drama silenced for years. Missing a study that out a step further and offer some key social essential to appreciate this problem of State.

The book poses key questions, which are going to be very uncomfortable in such a critical moment to the policy developed by the ministry of Justice of Spain. Asking questions is not anything innocent, especially when in the text there is enough material so that each reader can reach their own conclusions. To a certain extent that is the role more legitimate Policy and, in this case of the Sociology Retrospective.
