A Portuguese judge legally commits a crime against humanity

A Portuguese Muslim — from Cape Verde Islands origin — married woman with ten children had seen seven of them taken away from her for adoption, after she refused a surgery to block her fallopian tubes. As a Muslim, she couldn’t agree with such a surgery. And, as she and her husband are poor, a judge decided to take away from her the younger seven children for adoption.

When a so called “democratic” society is unable to cope with numerous families, then we ought to conclude that the system is not democratic at all.

In this case, the judge decision could be framed as a crime against humanity: instead of seeking social solutions for the problem, as for example looking for private and/or public institutions which could help that family in particular, a Portuguese judge choosed to split the family and send the children for adoption, albeit the suffering of the mother who will never see her children again.
