Disproof

No evidence given. While homosexual couples can be foster families, there are no official statistics of the number of homosexual foster couples in Germany. They are estimated to 1% of foster families in big cities, says a researcher at the University of Siegen http://bit.ly/2ssxIlI. In 2014, there were 41.000 registered same-sex couples in Germany, which make the numbers cited in the story quite unlikely: http://bit.ly/2fgMaFl. The objective of removing children from their families is to ensure the well-being of the child. If parents protest the removal of their children, public authorities must return the child to the family or seek permission from a court: http://bit.ly/2sPbMUk // There are no concentration camps in Germany.
