Social workers took a 2-year-old U.K. boy into care after his mother refused to give him junk food.
Zak Hessey was 17 pounds, 6 ounces when his mother Lisa took him to hospital, telling doctors he was a “fussy eater” and not gaining weight.
Doctors said he should weigh 19 pounds, 8 ounces, and advised the mother of five to bulk him up on chips, chocolate and cakes.
When she said no, social workers were called in and her son was put into foster care to assess if his eating improved.
This is good. Rather than finding out what’s wrong with the kid, they order the parents to feed him garbage, and when the parents refuse, the government accuses them of neglect and abduct the child.
Why doesn’t the UK just establish a Lebensborn system and be done with it?
