This recommendation is discrimination, pure and simple. What the hell, really? Fat people are told they can’t adopt and told they can’t get pregnant (from both societal and medical angles); let’s just add in some more.

And it speaks a little more to social engineering, methinks – don’t even allow fat people to breed, because, well, their kids might be fat. And you know what that means.
