    Child taken from womb by social services

    Child taken from womb by social services - Telegraph

    A pregnant woman has had her baby forcibly removed by caesarean section by social workers.



    Essex social services obtained a High Court order against the woman that allowed her to be forcibly sedated and her child to be taken from her womb.





    The council said it was acting in the best interests of the woman, an Italian who was in Britain on a work trip, because she had suffered a mental breakdown.


    The baby girl, now 15 months old, is still in the care of social services, who are refusing to give her back to the mother, even though she claims to have made a full recovery.

    So the woman is in the UK for some kind of job training. Apparently she's being treated for some kind of bipolar disorder. She gets off her meds and calls the cops who take her to the nut house where a decision is made to take her baby.

    She's not a citizen of the UK.


    OK...so this isn't one of those things we discuss when talking about nationalized health care but should it be? Is this really the kind of decision we want the government to be making for us? I mean, near as I can tell there was no representation for this woman until after the fact.

    Wow. Just wow. A nervous breakdown doesnt make a woman incapable of loving or caring for her baby. What a bunch of bs.

    And yet, there are still people in this country that think we should be more like the British.

    The huge nanny state knows what is best for all of us. The leaders may simply claim not to have known about this until they read about in the news. They will investigate this matter, declare it well discussed and promise to try to do better in the future. The gov't is why we need more gov't to help control the gov't.

    I bet there is more to this story. I have not looked it up yet...but could she take her bipolar meds while pregnant? Was she suicidal or attempting to harm herself or others or the baby? I bet there is a bit more to this story.

    It almost sounds like an abduction - ending up in a nut house like that. I wonder where the father of the baby is?

    Why in hte world do you think the Brits just want to do Csections on Itialns? Sounds like she was so crazy they had to to get her back on her meds. The article really dosent say much about the C section the problem is with keeping the baby in UK.

    WOW. I mean, WOW, like ZOINKS! That's the kind of stuff you only see in dystopian movies, but no, it's the real-life state of the UK. I cannot imagine a greater violation of your person than forcibly slicing your body open and taking your unborn child. That's a tick above China's forced abortions.

    Yeah, I understand. There's a lot missing in the report about her mental condition. The problem in my view is not whether the surgery was necessary or not - it may have been - it was how it was done and what transpired afterward.

    There's also a lot missing on her state of pregnancy. I couldn't even seem to find how far along she was.
    I call my own shots, largely based on an accumulation of data, and everyone knows it.
