Horrifying news out of the UK, with serious implications for all pregnant women.
Here’s the gist of it: Pregnant Italian woman travels to the UK for job training. While there, she becomes distressed. She is taken by police to a psychiatric hospital where she stays for over a month. During that time, socioa services workers obtain permission to have her baby delivered by csection against her will (and without her knowledge). Over a year later, the baby is still in social services care in the UK.
Sounds like a dystopian nightmare of the kind that has made Margaret Atwood a household name in literature. Unbelievably, it’s true, and the details are even more horrifying than my brief summary can capture.
