Sunday 20 March 2005 Response to ‘Healthy Start’

Policy Watch #9

'Consciously using health professionals 'as agents of persuasion' to help regulate people's behaviour is a worrying development. Families have to be allowed to determine how they choose to live their lives, to make real decisions and choices, to have those decisions and choices respected even if some of them are considered 'wrong' in the eyes of the government.'
