Father Joe: Babies are always placed for adoption in these cases. It's thought to be in the child's best interests.
Jenny Lee: What about Mary's interests? She's the mother, she did not consent!
Father Joe: Nurse Lee. She can't consent. She's only 15, still legally a child herself. It was a case of which child should we choose. How can a girl of 15 with no home, no education, no trade other than that of prostitution, bring up a baby?
