The Precedent Organisation founded on exposing the truth of adoption fraud and its subsequent mental
Origins has fought for nearly two decades for the rights
of those that have been affected by unlawful, forced and harmful adoption practices
Origins members have succeeded in obtaining two State Parliamentary Inquiries in NSW(1998)
and Tasmania (1999)
In November 2009 the committee of Origins
was summoned to Canberra by Minister Jenny Macklin and was offered "whatever we wanted" if Origins mothers of "forced adoption"
accepted being part of the Forgotten Australians and Child Migrants Apology, we soundly rejected this proposal demanding our
own Senate Inquiry so that those affected by illegal adoption could tell their stories.
Through a media campaign for over a year we were successful in our lobbying and a Senate Inquiry into unlawful
adoption practices was later announced in November 2010, that subsequently led to a national apology given by Julia Gillard
The members of Origins take great pride in being trailblazers for
adoption activism and the rest of the world affected also by these practices look to us to continue the fight for those who
have not had access to justice
