have you ever wanted something so much that your willing to risk the health of others in order to gain this want?
i know a lady who is pregnant and who is starving herself in a form of protest as she has been kept on a waiting list for accommodation.
she is not a happy bunny at the moment and she is determined to get what she wants from the council so she is black mailing them through her pregnancy, she refuses to eat, harming herself and her baby. now i don't know about you but i personally find this behaviour rather selfish and i get really annoyed when i hear things like this, i don't understand the concept of risking someones health for personal reasons!!!
if you want to do something to your body then so be it especially if your in the right frame of mind, i remember a couple of years ago a man protested about being sent back to his original country by sewing his mouth together to ensure starvation, not a pleasant sight but its his choice at the end of the day, and he was sane enough to come to that decision.
this lady on the other hand is in danger of damaging her baby (which by the way she does want to keep) for the sake of a 3 bedroom house, last time i saw her, she didn't look to good, and her health is getting affected, i mean when a woman is pregnant she goes through allot anyway usually needing iron tablets due to lack of iron in her body, dehydration sometimes due to vomiting, heart burn, aches and pain, the list can go on, so it doesn't really help matters when you starve your body from what it needs to make her survive as well as the baby growing in her.
she has every one bending over backwards because of this starvation business, and the sad thing is that no one is impressed by her actions, instead people are rolling eyes and expressing there disgust, the council have yet to comment, i don't think there buttons have been pushed far enough, clearly there not budging and inch and to be honest i don't blame them.
