• Regarding the forthcoming Children's Rights Referendum, nothing is defined and by default this will allow the State to take full control of all Irish children.

I focus on words in Article 42A. Failure -- by parents -- is something which only the State defines. The words and the lack of definition really do matter.

What we have here is "the blind man leading the blind man into the pit" (scripture).
