    There's a difference between protecting fertility and taking an already existing child away from a mother who was coping.



    According to the article she was capable - assessed by various professionals.

    So much stigma from so many people. We're in the 20th century people.

    Well, according to BigRedV, the professionals who diagnosed my sister were incorrect.

    So, the "diagnoses by professional" cr@p no longer flies with me. They could have diagnosed incorrectly. The judge would have seen this during the court proceedings. Everyone always natters on about what's best for the children. The judge decided this was. You can't have it both ways. Either the courts decide what's best for a child or they don't, so going to court for any children is pointless.

    ETA: Yes, we are in the 20th century, with a higher understanding of people with special needs. Therefore, we should have an understanding that they need a higher and different level of care to other people.

    The judge didn't decide - did you read the article? The mothers legal advocate conceded her rights

    I did read the article. The judge would have agreed, or they would have ruled in her favour.
    I also noticed that there is limited information to go on. Actually, I would go with next to no information to go on. So, we are arguing for the rights of a CHILD, not her mother, to live a normal and healthy life and actually be a child.

    Let me put it very clearly for you how I see these things: No mother has rights. Children have rights. Children have the right to be in the hands of a CAPABLE and loving parent, without worries or anything about being anything other than a child.

    The mothers legal advocate conceded her rights because...? I can't think of a single reason other than being in agreeance that she can't properly care for her daughter.

    Default Re: Little girl permanently removed from her good single mother :(

    I think what's a bit frightening about that thought of a child would be better off in the care of another despite the lack of harm or neglect, is then by what criteria does someone need to meet to maintain their parental rights if there is a "better" alternative? When the child's actual welfare isn't so much a factor as the alternative being better?

    That's not true actually. The judge never viewed submissions or had evidence submitted either way. The elderly relatives wanted custody, the mothers legal advocate gave it to them. The judge signed off.

    The mothers legal advocate would have conceded because they don't have funding to fight expensive legal battles.

    That just makes me believe it's the right decision even more! The situation had to be pretty bad to start with if the mothers own legal rep thought she wasn't capable.
