Truly disgusting.

I suppose the Archbishop of Drive-By Posting is going to come around with a post with only the word "Trite" written in it.

Funny that they did not know it was illegal, but took insurance out to protect them against the fallout.
Actually, no conflict there. You take out insurance against a risk of civil liability. You can incur civil liability (i.e. an obligation to compensate someone) for lots of acts that are not crimes- breach of contract, breach of your duty of care to another, professional negligence, etc.

More on the mother-and-baby homes:

Here's an interesting excerpt:
It notes there were letters from the Tuam mother and baby home to parents asking for money for the upkeep of their children and notes that the duration of stay for children may have been prolonged by the order for financial reasons.

It also uncovered letters to parents asking for money for the upkeep of some children that had already been discharged or had died. The social worker, “working in her own time and on her own dollar”, had compiled a list of “up to 1,000 names”, but said it was “not clear yet whether all of these relate to the ongoing examination of the Magdalene system, or whether they relate to the adoption of children by parents, possibly in the USA”.

I also found this bit interesting:
The report highlights the “intricacies of Bessborough’s accounting practices”, and that “detailed financial records and accounts were not handed over to the HSE by the Sacred Heart Order”.

We also learn of the nuns’ “preoccupation with material assets” and “preoccupation with materialism, wealth, and social status”, and that the women provided “a steady stream of free labour and servitude”. The nuns also received “financial renumeration” for the children of these women.

The Northern Ireland Historical Abuse Inquiry has commenced its examination of the crimes of Fr Brendan Smyth. http://www.rte.ie/news/2015/0622/709660-brendan-smyth/

Today, they heard a confession from Smyth to a doctor in 1994 where he claimed the number of his victims could run into the hundreds.
