Two top docs writing in the Journal of the American Medical Association sparked outrage by suggesting that extremely obese children should be taken away from their parents by the government and put in foster care. They say the goal would be to help the whole family and reunite them as soon as possible, but critics says it’s outrageous government intrusion.
- There are already plans for a new cartoon, “Fat Albert Goes To The Fat Farm”.
- If the government really wants to help parents out, they should take all children when their born and give them back when they’re potty trained.
- Years from now, thousands of thin kids will say, “I owe it all to my foster mom, Jenny Craig”.
