Mother Forces Her 14-Year-Old Daughter to Get Pregnant ... Because She Wants a Baby

Horrifying 63

bsby feetToo often, we hear stories about people who clearly shouldn't be parents. The latest head-shaker will undoubtedly rank right up there with the worst of the worst. A woman desperate for another child forced her 14-year-old daughter to get pregnant using donor sperm. It's absolutely sick. And the details are almost too shocking to be believed.

She was already the mother of three adopted children, but that apparently was not enough for this woman. When she was denied the chance to adopt a fourth child, she decided that her teen would have a baby that she would claim as her own.

It was a sick plan years in the making. The American divorcee, who was living in England, ordered sperm over the Internet. Officials believe that the girl had a miscarriage during the first attempt. Six more inseminations followed until she gave birth to a son in July 2011 at age 17. The situation didn't draw suspicion until the teen gave birth and nurses noted her mother's bizarre behavior and the fact she did not want the baby to get attached to the girl. The hospital called the police and since then all of the kids have been in foster care. The mother, convicted of child cruelty, is now serving five years in jail. And that's not enough if you ask me. There is something very sadistic about this entire case.

The judge quoted the poor girl as saying, if "I do this ... maybe she will love me more." She also reportedly said, "My mum is a very determined person and she does her best not to let anything get in her way if she wants it." This is one of the most disturbing stories I have ever heard. It's heartbreaking to hear of a mother using her child's need for love and acceptance in this way. What was this woman thinking? How could she do something so selfish to her own daughter?

It's just as twisted as it is sad. This mother clearly has no idea what being a parent really means. It’s not just about caring for an infant and it’s certainly not forcing your teen daughter to fulfill some sick need you have. This woman is clearly disturbed.

Do you think a five-year sentence was enough for what she did to her daughter?

I read elsewhere that she ordered syringes of semen online, and had the girl do the injections herself.

You an order sperm online???



I thought I had heard everything but I stand corrected.

Well technically @Lore Doney-Bruther: that could be the truth considering she bought donors online =) But no, five years is not nearly long enough for this woman. 


I hope the baby has someone that will love and care for him though.
