Mom Could Lose Son Over Obesity

British authorities are considering taking a child from his parent for what is being called child neglect. The boy in question is 8 years old and weighs 218 pounds, or 99 kilograms for our friends across the pond. Because of privacy concerns, it is unclear if the boy suffers from a medical condition or whether he just "can't stop eating 'em ".

This case might be the extreme situation, and I'm not so sure it wouldn't be in his best interest physically, but how about mentally? Cause children always react well when they are taken from their parents. What else could a government decide isn't good for children, and will they threaten to take those kids too? In my opinion, this is a very slippery slope.
