    To make this thread slightly less sickening I will post pictures of cute fluffy kittens every two paragraphs or so. It won't give you any more faith in humanity but hey, at least there's a superior species out there.

    Mass suicide for the good of the world will be at 10. Coffee and biscuits will be served at 11.

    I particularly like (NB: no I don't) how this woman phoned for an ambulance after starving her four children practically to death. Did I mention :tdown:?

    Something about that line just doesn't fly.

    Assuming the mother's the maternal mother of all 5 kids, she would've been at most 16 when she had her first child. And for whatever brilliant reason, looks like she doesn't believe in condoms.
    Ack.

    <- votes for manditory birth control.

    I think that's only if you're outside the UK. I've never had any problem with it.

    he was only jailed for seven years?! i bet the mom got off easier. crimes agenst children like this are the worst kind; are inexcusible. that was torture.
    in cases like these i think that the punishments should fit the crimes.

    Welcome to the modern world. :tdown::(

    My mother's a midwife, and while this is high on the list of shocking stories I've been told, she deals with 16 year old mothers (and even kids as young as 13 :hmm:) on pretty much a daily basis.

    What I really dread to think about is the fact that this is not a unique case, and that a lot of these sick people are smart enough not to phone for "help".
    While I'm all for making sure they (the parents) never have any kids again, It won't help the one's that have gone through this.
    Wonder if they were fostered by different families...

    thanks for the link, but im still using ye old IE... i know, i know, but i kinda like its quirks and annoyances and fequent crashes... im downloading firefox as we type.

    on topic: both got the same sentence iirc, 7 years. the children, if able to foster, will probably have formed such a strong bond as to be unseperable anyway, and its highly likly that all will be re-homed together, or at least in pairs.

    How's about a call for sterilisation of the offenders? I believe these idiots have forfeited the right to create any more lives.

    hmm. last year (or even six months ago) i would have disagreed.
    now, though, i think it sterilization is a viable option, it would make the ability to bear children more preciouse. but who do we put in charge to control/decide these cases? who decides when it is 'right' to sterilize someone for a crime they have commited? a person who is just as moral as you or i? i worry more over who is given a power like that.

    Sterilisation eh? You might as well say heil hitler. Rather have them able to bear children but not care for them, immediate adoption. Besides if you want to remove them from the gene pool then capitol punishment should be brought back, might as well be a hanging and for extra fun make it televised.

    And it's zero to Godwin in three seconds! A new record!

    (not that I don't agree with the sentiment)

    Every Saturday night with Ant and Dec. To complete the 21st century 'reality' experience you could have several condemned going head-to-head in a to-the-death challenge: last one to stop breathing gets a pardon and their own short-lived column in the Daily Express.

    Who's removing them from the gene pool? They've already created life and ****ed up so bad they've been put in front of a jury of their peers and found unfit to care for children. Why run the risk of them having more children to abuse? Why create the extra hassle of keeping an eye on them so they don't breed (or at least when they do, you just whisk their kids away from them)?

    I'd only ever advocate sterilising people if they had acted like the couple in this article. I want to make this very clear, I would never advocate sterilising anyone other than those who had been found to be negligent in the most extreme way. They'd be found guilty by a jury the same way as people who have murdered someone are sentenced to death (where the death penalty applies). I personally think the logic follows. Life for a life. Child abuse, ability to create life revoked. And I'm not saying I advocate the death penalty either.
