Government-Sanctioned Child Theft
Liberty Minute December 6 2013
It is difficult to imagine anything more cruel or depraved than forcibly sedating a pregnant woman, ripping her child from the womb, and then abducting the baby. Such incomprehensible sadism is well within the ability of child protection bureaucrats.
Social workers in Essex, England obtained a court order allowing them to sedate an Italian immigrant worker who reportedly suffered an emotional breakdown, and then remove the child through an involuntary c-section. The infant, who is now 15 months old, remains in the possession of the social services bureaucracy, despite the fact that the mother has recovered and is understandably anxious to be reunited with the baby she has never seen. The officials who abducted that child made no effort to identify and contact family members in Italy.
The woman’s problems began when she panicked after failing to find passports for her two other daughters. She called the police for help. When they arrived, the police took her to a hospital, assuring the frantic woman they were making sure “the baby is OK.” Only then did she learn that the facility was a mental ward – and when she awoke, her baby was gone.
Never forget that all government intervention is pregnant with totalitarian possibilities.
Let us take back the liberty wherewith Christ has made us free.
