Man Lost Custody of His Children Because He is Obese

A single father from Ottawa, Canada claims he lost custody of his children because of his weight, CTV National News reported Thursday. A family court judge ruled that his kids will be put up for adoption.

The 38-year-old, 360-pound man will appeal the case and stage a hunger strike at Ottawa's Parliament Hill Friday, the news program reported.

The boys, ages 5 and 6, have reportedly been in foster care since last year, when the man's ex-wife was hospitalized for a mental breakdown and a suspected overdose. Since then, the father has been locked in a custody battle with the Royal Ottawa Hospital's family court clinic, which conducts court-ordered assessments to see if parents are fit for child custody.

The father said his weight played a part in the court's decision to deny him access to his kids, though he has reportedly acknowledged that marijuana use and anger management issues were problems for him in the past.

"One of the reasons they used is because I was too fat, and couldn't keep up with my children," the man told CTV National News on Wednesday.

It's not the first time obesity has played a part in a custody battle. In October 2011, the Wall Street Journal reported on the growing role of obesity in child-custody battles in the U.S. -- from parents voicing concern about the nutrition of their children to accusations that ex-spouses are "too obese to perform basic child-rearing functions."

So he is going to go on hunger strike? perhaps he should have done that years ago then the fact that he is a fucking fat ass wouldn't be a factor.

Re: Man Lost Custody of His Children Because He is Obese

are the kids themselves obese or severely overweight? because that right there is a 100% valid reason to take kids away from an obese parent. the fact that he admits that "anger problems have been a problem in the past" makes it sound an awful lot like he's an abuser, too.
