Let me repeat: Social service is to be notified when you have one or both mentally handicapped people preparing to be parents. It is already the law. Both were/are probably receiving SSDisability and both or one may have been working through a government program. Last, unless she had the baby at home, the doctor and nurses would have realized the child was in danger.
Why do people always try to make the Govt responsible for fixing everything? Their family and neighbors should have stepped in. Social services can help but they've also proven their ineptitude time and time again.

I would question whether it is moral to allow people like this to marry in the first place. Remember, scripture says not everybody is fit to be spouses/parents. Matthew 19.
I'm pretty sure this biblical position is not reflected in the laws of this country, with the emphasis on individual liberties, but maybe it SHOULD be...
I think it used to be not allowed, but now common sense has taken a back seat to 'civil rights'
