China announced yesterday that it will enforce new international adoption selection criteria beginning in May, 2007. Among the new restrictions, are the criteria that adoptive parents will not be considered if they are taking medications for mental health conditions like depression or anxiety, or if they have a body mass index of 40 or above. The message seems to be that obese individuals are unfit to parent. (see story here ).
