I don't think that if a child is taken away from their parents for abuse and or drug abuse that they go back. They were taken away for a reason. The parents get a certain amount of time to get their s**t together before they lose parental rights. Moving around from home to home can do a lot of damage to a Childs development. They need to be able to have a safe place without feeling like they are going to be ripped out of that home and be returned to their birth parents who abused them and chose drugs over taking care of their children. The child should NOT get to go back with their parents after they are taken away.

Good people of DDO I ask you, What is a child?
I guarantee whatever description of a child you have brought forth, Regards that child as a second-class citizen, Instead of considering children with such contempt, I would urge the readers and my opposition to regard children as functioning human beings with free will and desires of their own, To that end, Shouldn"t it be the child's choice on whether to return or not? Therefore, I reject my opponents position; they"re in favor of taking rights away from children.
