Default Re: Dutch Parliament to Consider Forcing “Unfit Mothers” to Take Contraception

What is the definition in the Netherlands of an "unfit" mother?
I'm not familiar with Dutch statistics.

In the orriginal article, "unfit" refers to people who neglect or abuse their children. It is not a term used by Dutch authorities or Dutch media.

I fully agree with you. In fact, I'd say castration would be better in such a case.

As I said, the term "unfit" here refers to people who neglect or abuse their children. Sexual abuse is part of that definition.

I'm all for that.
Like I said, so am I. Both issues are unrelated, though.

With a "z" and not an "s."
Sterilised can also be written with an "s".
