No fiction can make it up what this mother and baby have had to endure – in the most child loving culture of Italy. Two articles in The Telegraph:
- Woman has child taken from her womb by social services
Exclusive: Essex social services have obtained a court order against a woman that allowed her to be forcibly sedated and for her child to be taken from her womb by caesarean section
- ‘Operate on this mother so that we can take her baby’
A mother was given a caesarean section while unconscious – then social services put her baby into care
But: there are Early Day Motions with long lists of MPs having signed that give us hope that we’ll get a National Debate rather than just John Hemming MP speaking out in Parliament and Christopher Booker writing in The Telegraph:
- National Debate on Child Protection – signed by 44 MPs so far
- Barnardos and Tackling Child Sexual Exploitation – signed by 80 MPs so far.
