Mapletree,

And yet you want the government to remove a child from it's parents.

I think that most people believe that the government has a duty to protect from abusive or otherwise inadequate parenting. If there's reason to believe that a child might be in danger, as is the case when the biological parents prove their lack some combination of judgement and self-control by conceiving a child out of wedlock, the government must protect the child.

Norm.
