Sorry but you are nuts. It is very wrong. They had no evidence she was suicidal. Alsoo even if she was they could have kep her and evaluated her and if they determined she was a danger to herself and child they could have kept her until she gave birth naturally. It seems they knew they couldn't/shouldn't and acted quickly. This is insanely wrong and I'm shocked that anyone could agree with it.

The authorities said the woman had had a mental breakdown and it acted in the best interests of the child
I guess the answer to your question depends on the nature of the "breakdown." If she was acting psychotic and homicidal then the safety of the child was in question and the actions justified.
Since the article doesn't elaborate it makes it impossible to say. Is there any additional information on this?
There is not a chance that the UK would have had the full social and medical history of an italian woman who was here on a holiday to make any sort of informed decision.
I also read how despite members of her family (e.g. a step aunt, respectable profession / career/ etc) willing to take the child, the UK is still refusing to give up this child. It is absolutely outrageous.
