In Franco's Spain the Catholic Church, nuns and doctors were co-conspirators in 
operating a criminal ring where young single mothers delivering babies in 
hospitals which in that time were all owned by the Church, were led to believe 
their babies had died. The babies were then given for adoption to affluent 

Not a far cry to reflect on this happening to poor and unwed mothers in 
Salazar's Goa where a similar ideology and strict moral code existed.
