They should also sort out their disability care so that this woman wasn't lost in the system for her last 6 pregnancies!!! Someone should have caring for her and ensuring that she was having antenatal care and not birthing at home!![/QUOTE]
I do agree with this bit

I would assume that whoever helps her with her decision making now has explored other contraception in the past and it has either failed or she has not been compliant with it.
Having forced sterilisation done is a huge huge thing. Even someone who wants to be sterilised but lacks capacity has to go through a court hearing.
This would be a last ditch effort after everything else has failed I am sure of it.
And committed for what @VicPark?

Im not saying this is the solution but the risk she is puttinf herself and any future babies in is to much for nothing to bed done.

Court to consider forced sterilisation of mother of 6
Thanks for your thoughts.
I think I'm like Delirium, I'm not really sure how I feel about it. I'm just wondering though, given that five of the children have the same father and they are in a long term relationship, surely a forced vasectomy is/should be on the cards as well?

Haven't read any replies yet, but while I was reading the article I just kept thinking, "yeah, ok, but its she a good mother??" because that would determine my opinion... Until I reached this paragraph:
"All six of her children, aged between six months and 12 years, have been taken into care, with five formally adopted"
So my thoughts are, as terribly sad and heartbreaking as it is, it (sterilisation) is for the best.
Also, it sounds like the poor woman had suffered through post natal psychosis with two of her pregnancies. Devastating.

Is she mentally ill? You can't use the mental health act to detain people of low IQ who are making poor choices. I don't know that Autism would come under the Mental Health Act.
If she's living OK independently in all other areas and just not making good health choices I doubt a guardian would be appointed to choose her housing. When a Guardian is appointed its not for all decisions; health, financial, housing choices all assessed separately.
It sounds like she has a long term partner, if they are managing well in the community and the pregnancy issue is the only problem there's no need or even any way she could be institutionalised and nor should there be.
