Social workers in Scotland took away an unnamed couple’s two preschool children after warning them that they could lose custody of all of their children if the six kids, ages 3 to 13 and weighing between 56 and 220 pounds, didn’t lose weight.
“This whole case has been dreadful,” said the couple’s attorney Kathleen Price. “Neither of these parents takes drink or drugs. They have a big, happy, noisy family, which is prone to being overweight.”
According to Price, the couple, who are expecting their seventh child, are worried that social workers will enter the hospital when the new baby arrives next month. (Fox News)
