Winter is coming
I can’t help but wonder if doing something like this hurts weapons….
There is the road to awe~
When the child behaves like an adult,
And when the adult is just a child.
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.
If you are not absolutely terrified and outraged by this you are wrong. The precedent this sets put every person on earth in danger.
oh my god read the article this is FUCKING HORRIFIC. she got back on her bipolar disorder medication and is in recovery but they won’t give her her child back “because of the risk she might relapse”. What you’re fucking saying with that is that mentally ill people shouldn’t even be allowed children even if they’re safe and well *just in case*, that we’re a permanent threat to ourselves and others even when we’re in treatment and recovery and living a stable life. I am FUCKING LIVID
Over a fucking panic attack. I’m fucking serious, all of this over a single panic attack. They took her baby in the most horrific way possible because she had a fucking panic attack.
From the Article:
She suffered a panic attack, which her relations believe was due to her failure to take regular medication for an existing bipolar condition.
It’s worth noting, that it’s very common for people on psychiatric medication to go off of their meds if they become pregnant, because of risk of side effects.
I bolded the above. I wanted there to be no one to think that she was being irresponsible for not haven taken her meds regularly. She did it for good reason, for the health of her own baby. And she got punished for it.
So she did what was best for her kid, has ONE SINGLE PANIC ATTACK WHICH IS A THING THAT CAN HAPPEN TO ANYONE WHETHER THEY HAVE A MENTAL ILLNESS OR NOT and decide that they can literally violate her body in a horrific manner and take her kid away. But she’s the dangerous one.
I can’t even imagine how terrifyingly awful that situation had to have been. Forcing a woman, against her will, to undergo sedation and then waking up in pain, without the fetus you’ve been carrying for 9 months? That’s beyond the pale. How much do the rights of an unborn fetus circumvent the rights of a full-grown adult? How much do we have to other the mentally ill, treating them (us) as less than human? She was literally treated like a breeding animal, with no cause of concern for her safety, mental health or well-being. Fuck. Fuck.
This is literally the stuff that horror movies are made of.
When K was relating this story to me, I couldn’t believe it until I read the article for myself. Have we really gotten to the point that a woman who, even just from the stress of being pregnant, has a panic attack can legally have her baby ripped out of her body and be thrown into a mental institution? Did we slip back into the 19th century, because I don’t recall any horse-drawn buggies going by outside.
This is why we need mental health reform. This is why we need women’s rights. This is why we need to treat fellow humans like fucking humans, not livestock to be cast aside when they seem a little “off.”
I am physically ill. Fuck. I can’t even—fuck. This is some Edwardian Era-level BULLSHIT right here. This is fucked up on so many levels it’s ridiculous. First of all: MENTAL ILLNESS DOES NOT AUTOMATICALLY MAKE YOU A BAD PARENT. Second of all: WHAT RIGHT DO YOU BRITISH FUCKWITS HAVE TO FORCIBLY SEDATE A FOREIGN (Not even one of your own citizens) WOMAN AND PREFORM AN UNWANTED C-SECTION ON HER? Third of all: PANIC ATTACKS CAN HAPPEN TO ANYONE NOT JUST THE MENTALLY ILL. Fourth of all: AT WHAT POINT DID YOU THINK IT WAS OKAY TO TREAT A WOMAN LIKE A BROODMARE? Fifth of all: WHAT THE ACTUAL FUCK?
What the fuck I thought this was a parody article at first. It HAD to be a parody article, it’s so ridiculous. But it’s not oh god it’s NOT.
