I'm worth how much?A new mom is facing felony charges after selling her baby to a friend for $15,000. Bridget Wismer says, however, it's not what it looks like. What it looks like is this single mom, who lives with her other two children and her own mother, unexpectedly got pregnant. She is unemployed and had no way to care for the baby, so she either gave or sold the baby to her friend Jack Gavaghan -- who is also facing charges. The fact that Jack gave her $15,000 seems like, hey, he just bought himself a baby. But Wismer insists that he was just helping her out during a hard time.
Either way, dude got a baby, and the mom got $15K. Seems like some kind of transaction happened, whether the lady tried to get cash money for her newborn or not. While I know selling babies is illegal, it does make you wonder: Is $15,000 too much money to spend on one baby?
