Children removed from parents

Society must protect children from harm. However there are parents in Britain today whose children have been removed without their consent. The separation is heartbreaking for parents seeking to be reunited with their children who in turn may suffer the repercussions of separation anxiety.
No one wants to hear of mistreated children but post Baby P, have we gone to the other extreme? View French interviews with British parents:

Post Baby P:
On Forced Fostering and Adoption
 
We have read of grieving parents
Children taken from the womb
Not by God above or others
But by pen; given a tomb
 
For a tomb allows no love
Between a parent and a child
Separated by a family court
Whose fears are running wild
 
Forced adoption is not the answer
Forced adoption is not the way
Parents facing difficulty
Need help in many ways
 
Where the mother is still willing
To bring up her loving child
Only wickedness would prise
The bridegroom from the bride
 
Our Services should foster
Loving ways to help the child
The agenda should support
Those who are supposed to guide
 
Social Services should adopt
Ways to help the grieving mother
Not to prise her child away
To be fostered by another.

Our Social Services exist to help cohesion and probably do a great amount of good in the majority of cases. Yet there are families who feel that their lives have been ripped apart by cruel decisions on the part of those who were supposed to be helping them:
