Ethnic minority mother gave child up for adoption because her family would kill her if they learned she’d had sex before marriage

A mother from an ethnic minority gave up her baby for adoption because she feared her family would kill her if they learned she had sex before marriage, a court heard.

The woman, who cannot be named, told social workers that she did not want the father or her family to know that she had given birth.

She said she would be ostracised from her family and community or even killed if they found out about the pregnancy, a judge said.

What mysterious ethnic group is this?

    Ethnic minority community in London eh? Well that would be English.

    I don’t think there’d be any shortage of couples wanting to adopt.
    Sikh couple in UK barred from adopting because all the available children were white and their “cultural heritage” was unsuitable.
    Of course, they might be barred by not being muslim.
