LONDON: An American woman living in the UK forced her 14-year old daughter to inseminate herself with sperm she found on the internet because she could not conceive and could not adopt another child. The mother suffered a health condition that prevented her from giving birth on her own and had undergone elective sterilization. She had already adopted three children, including the 14-year old, and apparently became distraught when she was prevented from adopting more children. In desperation, she hatched the plan to use her daughter as a surrogate.
Over a two-year period, the daughter was made to inseminate herself seven times using syringes of semen. But the mother’s madness didn’t stop there. She was determined that the child be born a girl so she forced her daughter to follow a special diet and use painful acidic douches containing vinegar or lemon and lime juice believing these measures would affect the baby’s gender.
Midwives became suspicious when the mother would not allow the daughter to breastfeed the child saying: “we don’t want any of that attachment thing.”
An outraged High Court Judge said the mother had behaved in ‘a wicked and selfish way’ that almost defied belief. He then hammered her with a five-year jail term for child cruelty.
