Church of Scientology 'toxic' for children - 2010-05-19
Scarlett Hanna, whose mother Vicki Dunstan is the president of the Church of Scientology in Australia, said she wanted the church to "take accountability" and apologise to those who were victims of its abuse.
In an interview with the ABC's Lateline, aired last night, Ms Hanna alleged children, including herself, who were born to members of the sea org -- Scientology's elite unit -- were deprived of contact with their parents, given a lack of medical attention and forced to live in cramped conditions. "It was an incredibly lonely childhood." Ms Hanna said.
