I’ve suffered from panic attacks occasionally all my life. My Doctors advised blowing in a paper bag and physical exercise first before taking meds. I never knew that in Briton a panic attack is cause for having your child taken away, but of course she is the one that called the police.

Its a better place career-wise for me and beside that, she-who-must-be-obeyed is from England and I promised her we’d move back if she kicked breast cancer. She did, and after paying off 10k in medical bills, we packed up and moved over, other than the weather, I love it here.

Bipolar disorder is highly heritable. The baby has a high chance of being bipolar as well.

None of the government's business.

Something like that would alone cause serious mental anguish and problems. Talk about trying to send someone over the edge.

Sooner or later, the government will assume control over that which it presides. Making abortion in Roe V. Wade a federal issue which it is not (as well as many other thing the Feds interfere with unconstitutionally) allows the government to close in on assuming control over pregnancies. The “progressives” and socialists would like to make everything and everyone property of the federal government. They already do pretty much whatever they want. The next step isn’t too far from that.

If this bi-polar woman had decided to have an abortion the British state would have paid for it and applauded her “right to choose” to “terminate her pregnancy” and expel the “fetal tissue” from her body. They would not have accepted an argument that she was not mentally fit to make such a decision or that the unborn child had any recognized rights. By intervening in this case and forcibly taking the baby, the British state has effectively recognized that the fetus is in fact an unborn child deserving of protection. They are blinded by their hypocrisy and will never admit the obvious.

Whether or not that’s true, one thing IS true: is it is none of the government's business.

Okay, how is that even remotely ethical?

Why not let her deliver the child naturally? Thisnis barbaric. Next they are going to mandate abortion. Pro choice my arse. Even Hillary is speaking of sustainable development.

If they try doing that to my future wife and child, I'll turn into the worst boogeyman that these vermin can imagine. None of this sitting around at home whining about "injustice".

We are free when we declare ourselves to be such. So far I'm not seeing a whole lot of bravery from the human race. It appears that people love comfort so much that they are afraid to step on any government toes....even if that means the torment and death of their own children. I hate people...

I did. Being bi-polar is definitely heritable. I’ve seen it run in families as well.

People in Britain don’t go to church any more: don’t have the time or the money.

Abortion in the UK IS set by strict rules. You aren’t allowed to do it when you wish (there are time limits), nor if you aren’t mentally competent.

Having a good friend that is a Psychiatrist, he estimates a 25% chance of Bipolar if one parent has the disease, 50% if two. This can be the case with other conditions, and Bipolar is treatable. Also, if Bipolar runs in the family those 25% and 50% numbers include those family members that are going to get non-Bipolar Depression and other mood disorders, which many people have with no family history.

I know Huldah. We have to do what we can to make a difference without becoming discouraged by the evil that surrounds us. Difficult days ahead.
