And guess who's right at the very heart of this one...
"The scandal is closely linked to the Catholic Church, which under Franco assumed a prominent role in Spain's social services including hospitals, schools and children's homes."

Only one child would be too many, but I must ask about where the BBC takes the number from: there are 900 cases on different Spanish courts right now under investigation. There is a big jump to 300k. Just saying.
The bbc did not say 300k were actually stolen. If you read carefully:
Lawyers believe that up to 300,000 babies were taken.
which means they found 1 lawyer who thinks (not knows) that 300k is an accurate guess...
Thanks for this post. I'd never heard of this scandal in the mainstream media.
