Too fat to be a fatherWednesday, August 8, 2007 at 7:16 | Posted in absurd, Sweden | 2 Comments
Jan and Mona-Lisa Karlsson in Tibro, Sweden have been denied an artificial fertilization. The local health officials say the father is too fat to be a parent. Mr. Karlsson is 168 centimeters high and weighs 85 kilograms. According to the officials, general health of both parents is regarded in their consideration.
To be consequent about it, weight regulations should also be imposed on men who wish to become fathers the old fashioned way. Why not legislate about a compulsory weight control before granting license to have sex?
