The latest in social engineering...

In Norway, if you're overweight..it will be tougher to adopt.
Concerns have arisen over a possible change requiring potential adoptive parents to disclose their height and weight.

A proposal for a new application form for adoptive parents includes information on height and weight, as has already been the practice in Denmark for many years. Overweight is often a factor in adoption refusals there.

"If overweight carries significant health problems with it we must accept that it is part of the assessment," Øystein Gudim, general manager of the Adoption Forum, told radio station P4.

The Ministry of Children and Equality is now considering whether weight and height are necessary information for disclosure.

"If one is very heavy it poses a risk for high blood pressure, diabetes or cardiovascular diseases. So in this respect weight and height information can have significance for the outcome," Gudim said.

I see their objection - they just dont want to put the children with families that are likely to be dead in ten years.

A parent with a bad lifestyle is going to raise kids with a bad lifestyle, simple as that.
