We can clamp down on antisocial children before birth, says Blair

(1.9.2006) Tony Blair has said it is possible to identify problem children who could grow up to be a potential „menace to society“ even before they are born.

Setting out plans for state intervention to prevent babies born into high-risk families becoming problem teenagers of the future, the prime minister said teenage mothers could be forced to accept state help before giving birth, as part of a clampdown on antisocial behaviour.
