A pregnant woman has had her baby forcibly removed by caesarean section by social workers.

Essex social services obtained a High Court order against the woman that allowed her to be forcibly sedated and her child to be taken from her womb.

The council said it was acting in the best interests of the woman, an Italian who was in Britain on a work trip, because she had suffered a mental breakdown.

The baby girl, now 15 months old, is still in the care of social services, who are refusing to give her back to the mother, even though she claims to have made a full recovery.

“They are also upset that social workers insisted on placing the child in care in Britain, when there had been an offer from a family friend in America to look after her.”

Gubmint’ knows best (blechh). This is like some horror/sci fi movie. And to think the formerly pregnant Italian lady was in the UK for work training.

It’s pretty appalling. Visit UK, be forcibly sedated, have the baby cut out of you and then given to a stranger.

They couldn’t find a doctor to do the dirty deed?
