An MP is to raise in Parliament the case of a pregnant Italian woman whose baby was reportedly forcibly removed by caesarean section in Britain by order of social workers.
A High Court order was obtained against the woman that allowed her to be forcibly sedated and her child to be taken from her womb, the Sunday Telegraph reports.
The council said it was acting in the best interests of the woman, who was in Britain for work reasons, because she had suffered a mental breakdown, the newspaper reported.
Liberal Democrat MP John Hemming said today: "I intend to raise this in Parliament. I need to speak to the lady tomorrow evening to find out how she wishes to proceed.
A spokesman for the council involved said "it does not comment on the circumstances of ongoing individual cases involving vulnerable people and children."
