British Social Workers Confiscate Children


I wonder how motivated Britons would have been to bravely defend their homeland from the Nazis if they knew that only two generations later it would degenerate into a country so far from free that the government seizes children from their parents for not meeting bureaucrat-mandated body mass index requirements:

Four obese children are on the brink of being permanently removed from their family by social workers after their parents failed to bring their weight under control.

In the first case of its kind, their mother and father now face what they call the ‘unbearable’ likelihood of never seeing them again.

Their three daughters, aged 11, seven and one, and five-year-old son, will either be ‘fostered without contact’ or adopted.

Either way, the family’s only hope of being reunited will be if the children attempt to track down their parents when they become adults.

The couple, who have been married for nearly 20 years and are not being named to protect their children’s identities, were given a ‘draconian’ ultimatum three years ago…

Warned that the children must slim or be placed in care, the family spent two years living in a council-funded ‘Big Brother’ house in which they were constantly supervised and the food they ate monitored.

But despite subjecting them to intense scrutiny … there was apparently little or no improvement.

So the children will be confiscated, and the parents will probably never see them again, despite not having committed any crime.

This intolerable tyranny is justified by official statistics claiming that people who are overweight are a burden on the socialized healthcare system.

While it’s still conceivable that we might repeal ObamaCare, we need to ask ourselves: are we willing to live in a country like Britain has become, or are we still Americans?
