    Link: Child Taken From Womb By Social Services - Woman was forcibly sedated and her child was taken from her womb by caesarean section (yes, you read that right)

    It is so completely outrageous that I am wondering what the other side has to say. There is a suggestion there is a lot we don`t know.

    I know there are some skanky parents but this seems OTT by any standard.

    It`s a legitimate newspaper, so it probably isn`t made up.

    The UK has become increasingly authoritarian in my lifetime, but this is surprising. Sadly not unbelieveable, though - combine the "protect the children!" mentality with the draconian UK mental health laws (you can be stripped of almost all rights, essentially a non-person) and this is all too believable.

    Nothing new.
    Crack babies are taken from their crack-whore mothers all the time. I am sure Child Services had a legitimate reason to take this child....which is not listed by the biased media.

    And that`s why you don`t call the cops about mental health stuff you go to urgent care or the hospital.

    Did you even bother to read the article, Gerry?
    It covered the reasons in a fair amount of detail.

    The only thing why did it take 15 months for the media to pick it up. The lawyers have been going strong during that time but only after it hit the internet do the UK and Italy law makers want to do something to make sure it does not happen again to someone else.

    At least they did not remove the baby to abort it but to take care of it the best way a state can.

    Well this is a load of speculation invented words and half truth with regurgitated crap from a journo with an axe to grind against social services
    A full break down for those who care

    TL:DR - Women had been sectioned for 5 weeks. Doctors applied to court and decided to do Caesarian for clinical/medical reasons, i.e save the mother and child. Essex Social services have only been allowed to correct false information when court says yes (secrecy for child protection in these cases) Decision to take kid away is unrelated to Caesarian.

    yea, they may have been in their legal rights for their actions, but ionno, in my opinion, thats pretty drated up. like seriously, i am in question with thoes peoples morals. if the chick was a crack whore, maybe, but even then, this seems way OTT to me.
