Deranged UK mother forces 14-year-old daughter to get pregnant from donor sperm just to gain fourth child
by Jonathan Benson, staff writer
(NaturalNews) An American divorcee living abroad in the U.K. has been sentenced to five years in prison for child cruelty after she reportedly forced her oldest daughter, who was a minor at the time, to get pregnant from donor sperm in order to provide her mother with the fourth child she always wanted. As reported by CBS News and others, the unidentified woman compelled her daughter to inject syringes of sperm she purchased online a total of seven times before the girl finally became pregnant with a baby boy, which she delivered in July 2011 when she was just 17 years old.
Previously sealed and restricted from media release, details of the case continue to emerge highlighting one of the more deranged forms of child abuse to be reported in recent years. According to court documents, the mother, who U.K. High Court judge Peter Jackson recently declared to have behaved in "a wicked and selfish way," came up with the plan to artificially inseminate her daughter after she was barred from adopting a fourth child on her own. And her daughter complied, believing that if she did so, her mother would love her more.
"My mum is a very determined person and she does her best not to let anything get in her way if she wants it," the daughter is quoted as saying to officials. "(I thought) if I do this ... maybe she will love me more."
Confused daughter sacrifices her own dignity to gain mother's approvalReports indicate that the mother purchased the donor sperm from a Denmark-based company known as Cryos International. And because she preferred that her daughter, who was only 14 years old at the time, bear a baby girl, the mother also administered douches containing vinegar and either lemon or lime juice to her daughter. This application, she believed, would increase the young girl's chances of having a girl, a plan that ultimately failed as the daughter eventually got pregnant with a baby boy.
This horrendous scheme finally got the attention of the state, however, when the pregnant girl was admitted to the hospital to deliver the child and her mother began acting strangely. Midwives reportedly observed odd behavior from the deranged mother, who insisted that her daughter not breastfeed the newborn child, stating "We don't want any of that attachment thing." The hospital proceeded to alert authorities, and all of the children, including the daughter who had just delivered the newborn child, were taken and put into foster care.
In his final judgment, Judge Jackson described the mother as having "an exceptionally forceful personality," and expressed "an abiding sense of disbelief that a parent could behave in such a wicked and selfish way towards a vulnerable child." And since the case became public, several groups have also questioned the ease with which people like the mother in question are able to obtain sperm so freely from an international marketplace, adding to a sentiment expressed by Judge Jackson that "there [are] no effective checks on a person's ability to obtain sperm from Cryos."
