Sometimes you just have to accept that there are things we will never understand in this world. That's especially true when it comes to mothers who betray their own children. The latest example? A mother in Colombia is accused of selling her 12 daughters' virginities. Horrific, right. Wait, it gets even worse.
Not only did Margarita de Jesus Zapata Moreno take money from men who wanted to de-flower her girls once they turned 12, she then made the girls work as prostitutes. Clearly this woman is more monster than mother.
The entire sordid mess only came to light when one of her daughters told police what was allegedly happening. The teen was reportedly pregnant and angry that her mother wanted her to abort the child (which was presumably a product of a night with a john). Moreno was arrested and so was Tito Cornelio Daza, the 51-year-old father of the baby.
It's just unbelievable that a woman would do this to her children -- 12 of them. All this, reportedly, to pay her bills. It's just sickening. Not surprisingly, Moreno denies all of this. And I actually pray this is not true, but why would her daughter lie about such a monstrous thing? And it's not just the mother that will deserve a harsh punishment. What about all those depraved men who took advantage of those little girls? They need to be locked away too. I just hope her 12 daughters get the help they need to start healing from this nightmare.
What do you think motivates people to do horrible things like this?
