This podcast discusses the debate of whether childhood obesity should be considered child abuse and whether it is right to be able to take a child from their home because of it. I chose this topic because it seems to be a “hot topic” in the the area of child obesity and I think it is very interesting. The passage I will read will be a short blog post I found on the topic from the website http://www.bioethics.net/2011/07/is-child-obesity-a-form-of-child-abuse/ . This blog post talks about another article on this issue and I discuss it further and use some examples.
Hope you enjoy listening!
