Around 5% of all pregnant women in the UK - more than 38,000 - are severely obese, putting them and their babies at risk, according to a new study.
A stillbirth is twice as likely if the mother is severely obese.
Very overweight mothers are also at greater risk of blood clots, high blood pressure and bleeding after birth.
Nevertheless, this not insignificant proportion of overindulgent women still feel entitled enough to become pregnant.
A fact that no man anywhere can realistically be blamed for, since men have no reproductive rights.
Thus, these women have nobody but themselves to blame when they go through with pregnancy, only to result in a stillbirth.
It should be obvious that they are unfit parents - what kind of role model is an obese mother? That point may even become moot as children end up having to take care of their parents, far too soon in their young lives.
If these women were responsible in the slightest, they wouldn't be having children.
They would be sorting out their own lives, fighting whatever demons cause them to eat too much and exercise too little, and becoming responsible adults in the process.
Rather than indulging themselves on every whim without a thought to the harm they will cause others.
I want food!
I want a baby!
A child cannot raise a child.
