Many Many? Large numbers of kids?

You can google it, but with 60,000 kids just in 2016 being taken away from abusive/neglectful moms/dads, I think the stats speak for themselves.
The sexuality of the crazies is irrelevant.

Sexuality most certainly is relevant if the abuse was/is being ignored because of it. It's strange to me how nobody even entertains that notion.

How many of these 60,000 children were removed from adoptive parents, rather than bio parents? I think you'd find a far lower percentage of adopted kids among this sad total.

Clearly, neither of these women should ever have adopted or had biological children at all, and it's a disgraceful tragedy that none of the previous reports of abuse were taken seriously enough to remove the children from them. Hindsight...

As has been noted, you can google for any number of them. Here are a couple:

https://www.desmoinesregister.com/st...ia/2570373002/

There's a current case going on in NH where abuse has not yet been proven but there are a LOT of red flags. In that case, though, it was the parents who were killed.

There's an interesting documentary by Dan Rather that recounts several of them -- one is a couple who adopted a bunch of children and when they weren't sufficiently grateful and compliant they threw them out.
Dan Rather Investigates America’s Most Pressing Issues in “Dan Rather Presents” | AXS TV

There's a big push right now in the right wing evangelical community for people to adopt children for Jesus. When the children are insufficiently grateful, the parents abuse them and eventually either kill them, throw them out on the street (sometimes even fabricating assaults, calling the police, and having the child arrested) or putting them on a plane with a one way ticket back to their country of origin, with no money, a changed identification, and having been stripped of their citizenship.

I would think it was their willingness to take in sibling groups of older children of color. Its not like a lesbian couple who wants to adopt is going to just be handed over baby after baby.

You really think the mothers being gay is what caused the children's deaths? I would have thought it was some serious mental health issues... Unless you think being gay is a mental health issue (which its not).

Why didn't they just turn the kids in then go out Thelma and Louis style? I just don't get it, unless they were demonically possessed maybe?

Because they probably had serious mental problems and we're delusional enough to think they were the only one's who could "care" for these children.

Same for murder/suicides committed by bio parents.

You may be absolutely correct. I don't know. None of us does. What bothers me is that nobody wants to ponder ANY possibility that the CPS authorities turned a blind eye because of the lesbian factor. Are you 100% sure that didn't happen?

All I'm saying is "Let's look", but everyone else is screaming "Bigot!" at me.
