Children with unemployed parents should be taken away for there own good. Parents who cannot earn money cannot afford to take care of there children leaving the children malnourished and the unemployed parents starved. I would not wish this fate on my children. Children in this case are being abused though they don't realize it and it hurts the parents to see there children like this leaving them to resort to ways to escape there sad reality like drinking and drugs. As a child, I wouldn't wish this fate onto my parents. Its a sad state for everyone involved and the children can live a better life in an adopted or foster home.

This claim is ridiculous.
First of all, this is immoral! What gives the government the right to steal children away from parents who are having trouble making ends meet. Second of all, the unemployment rate is 7.9%, which means that 12,258,000 parents would be losing their children. And thirdly, just because a parent is unemployed does not necessarily hinder them from raising their children. There are many social welfare programs that can help make ends meet.

Giving starving children better homes cannot be considered immoral. The unemployment rate is high leaving devastated families an malnourished children. The other 92.1% should step in to help. Parents under the stress to feed there children may resort to alchohol and drugs to release there sad reality, in fact 95% of unemployed people do. Its not "stealing children" its giving them a better home.

Giving starving children better homes cannot be considered immoral.

The average American has 2 children. Now let's mutliply that unemployment rate by 2. Over 24516000 will now be put into foster care. This would literally destroy the foster home business. Every foster home would be crowded, leading to health problems. How is this a better home?

Just because a parent is unemployed does not necessarily hinder them from raising their children

You're right, it's actually kidnapping.
