A woman was jailed after forcing her adopted daughter to impregnate herself.
The teenage girl suffered at the hands of her adopted mother who forced her to get pregnant by artificial insemination in order to provide the mother with a fourth child, according to British court documents.
The mother, is unable to give birth due to her health problems. She adopted three children with her former husband, but when she wanted to adopt a fourth child her application to adopt was denied by the agency.
When she was refused permission to adopt again, the divorced woman carried out the despicable plan of using her daughter to give her a baby, the court heard. It is believed, that the girl had miscarried at age 14, but was successfully impregnated and gave birth at age 16. The mother bought the sperm from an online shop that sells sperm in Denmark.
The girl was home schooled and had no friends apart from her two younger adopted siblings. The girl was forced to inseminate herself alone in her bedroom, using syringes of semen prepared by the mother. The girl admitted that she was shocked by the request of her mother, but she agreed and hoped that this act will make her mother love her more.
Social services visited the home on four separate occasions, but the mother was able to fool them into believing that the children were well taken care of. Finally, the authorities intervened successfully after the girl gave birth to a healthy baby.
The girl’s midwives alerted authorities to the strange behavior of the mother. The midwife was concerned about the mother’s “aggressive and insensitive behavior” and the girls reluctance to hand the baby to the mother. The judge presiding over the case, said: “I am in disbelief that a parent could behave in such an evil and selfish way to a vulnerable child.”
“This girl suffered a lot, hopefully, the girl gets the help she needs to raise her baby. I am glad that the evil woman was not able to take the baby away from the teenage mother,” Natasha Smith, 32, of London, England told YourJewishNews.com after hearing about the mother’s evil plan.
The mother was found guilty of child cruelty and was sentenced to five years in prison.
The social service agency is reviewing the entire case to determine how this happened under their watch.
