Give us justice; YOUR LETTERS.

I AM a parent involved in the organ retention scandal at Alder Hey.

I was brought up to believe that stealing is a crime. If you stole, you were punished, and if you persisted in stealing you were taken to court. And then, depending on the severity of the crime, you were taken out of society by being sent to prison.

Taking organs without permission is theft, and it was done on a large scale. Doctors persisted in taking organs from hundreds and hundreds of dead babies and children.

It was a deplorable act of larceny.

Larceny, of course, is a serious crime and is punishable by law. And I want the people responsible for this act to be punished, also.

My son Stephen Wardrop died in 1985. He was nearly seven years of age. Organs were taken from him without my permission, and I believe that was an act of larceny.

And I, like hundreds of other families, want justice.

Mr R Wardrop, Liverpool 15.
