    The people in those articles are very, very young. What they did is just unimaginable, shocking...but they may grow up to realise the true extent of what they have done and be completely remorseful.

    I find it distressing beyond belief, but sterilising people imo won't bring back those babies. I believe more funding and support of docs having more power to prevent things like this with children at risk would be better.

    Education and support/intervention is the key I think.

    I find it interesting that the first one was so so frightened to tell her mother that she hid the baby and then left it in the driveway, and that she has an intellectual disability. What does that say about her mother?

    If I was the parents of the intellectually impaired girl, I would have taken her to the doctors and got a contraceptive implant as soon as she was about 15 years old / or I knew she was sexually active.

    No need for forced sterilization these days I feel. Human rights....

    My mum took me to Dr and put me on the pill as soon as I was sexually active. Whether that's right or not I don't know but if these parents had done the same thing it might have prevented the horrible short life of that poor little baby Maybe?

    I'm not pointing blame ....just looking at how it may have been prevented.

    Yes it's disgusting. I know someone who has 2 kids in care (that she doesn't even try to get back) and another child living with the father and she's now fallen pregnant to some random guy.
    I hope docs take the baby before she leaves the hospital.

    Im glad this happened sometimes! I know a woman who lost her first 2 kids, 3rd was taken at birth. She has none of these 3 back but has now been able to keep child 4+5!!

    So messed up! Particularly as its plain to see on fb that she hasent cleaned herself up!

    Iys like they thought 'oh she keeps having kids, so maybe if we let her keep 1 or 2 she will stop!'

    Poor babies

    I know of a few girls who are up to their 5th and 6th kid each. All get taken off them by 6 months old, many from birth. They smoke, drink, take drugs through pregnancy.Families rife with crime and abuse. It's so sad watching those poor little kids. I wouldn't want to take away someones human rights, but I see what happens to these poor kids, their mums need sterilizing.

    It would be nice if people could be assisted in getting their kids back. Obviously one living with the father is different, but I would like to see (where possible) parents getting kids back in their care. Not just keep getting them taken away.

    Nice? They usually get taken away for very good reasons. I know a few people who's kids get taken away. They have been offered every kind of help available and they just don't care and can't be bothered.
