More children will be removed from their biological parents and placed for adoption, under “urgent” new rules to be announced by ministers. For the first time it will be a legal requirement that family courts and councils prioritise the “long-term stability and happiness” of children, Education Secretary Nicky Morgan said. The emphasis on placing vulnerable children in the care of families who can look after them right up until their 18th birthday is likely to see more adoptions – in attempt to reduce the number of young people bouncing in and out of the care system.
Northern Ireland's abortion laws break the EU human rights rules, Belfast High Court has ruled.
The ruling comes after a challenge brought by the Northern Ireland Human Rights Commission (NIHRC), which seeks the legalisation of abortion in cases of serious fetal malformation, rape and incest.

During the first two years of life, a child's brain undergoes extensive development, especially of pathways used in higher functions such as thinking, learning, attention, memory, social control, and language.

The groups’ petition follows Monsanto Agricultural Nigeria Limited’s own application to NAMBA that seeks to release GMO cotton (Bt cotton, event MON 15985) into the city of Zaria as well as surrounding towns.
Another application seeks confined field trials of two GMO corn varieties (NK603 and stacked event MON 89034 x NK603) in multiple locations in Nigeria.
In a press release, the groups said they are particularly alarmed about the commercial release of Bt cotton into Nigeria, which is being phased out in Burkina Faso due to the “inferior lint quality” of the GMO cultivars.
According to work by the Bureau of Investigative Journalism published last week, more than 600 former unaccompanied asylum seeking children have been sent back to Afghanistan since 2009 – their claims and appeals rejected.
