Oregon Parents Have Children Taken Away By Government Because “Their IQ Scores Are Too Low”

Eric Zeigler, 38, and Amy Fabbrini, 31, an Oregon couple, had their children taken away from them by the government because the entity said their IQ scores made them unqualified to take care of children.

For years, the couple has been doing what they could to show the state that they could take care of their kids. However, the Oregon Department of Human Services said that the couple was mentally-limited to care for the children properly.

Not long after the birth of their first boy, Christopher, they lost custody. The state once again stepped in and took custody of their second son, Hunter, when he was still in the hospital. Both of the boys are in the foster care system now.

Despite no signs of abuse, the kids were still taken away. The state justified that the problem is that Fabbrini’s IQ was 72 and Zeilger’s was 66. The average IQ ranges from 90 to 110.

Fabbrini said she did not know she was pregnant until her third trimester. Zeigler receives a government check for his mental disability.
