In the UK, a 14 year old teenager girl was forced on several occasions to inseminate herself using sperm donor syringes purchased from on online cryogenic sperm bank, reports ABC News.
The reason this began is because the teenage girl’s mother desperately wanted to have another child but was not able to conceive on her own.
The UK mom who lives in Britain is originally from America; additionally the mom had adopted three children and was trying to adopt a fourth. Upon finding out about the denial of the possibility for adopting a fourth child, the mom devised the plan to have her own daughter be inseminated.
The mother purchased sperm donor syringes from the cryogenic sperm bank known as Cryos International and had them delivered to the home. Once the syringes arrived, the mother instructed the daughter to inseminate herself. After six failed miscarriages, the daughter was successful at an insemination conception and gave birth to a boy in July, 2011 at the age of 17 years old.
This case has been proceeded by the High Court in Britain.
Judge Peter Jackson said the daughter, identified only as A, “became pregnant at the mother’s request, using donor sperm bought by the mother, with the purpose of providing a fourth child for the mother to bring up as her own.”
In his ruling, the judge quoted the teenager as saying said she was shocked by the suggestion, but thought, “If I do this … maybe she will love me 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 teenager added.
The judge said the mother also made the teenager use douches of vinegar or lemon and lime juice in hopes of increasing her chances of having a girl.
The judge said it was likely but not certain that the daughter soon became pregnant and suffered a miscarriage. After six more attempts with the donor sperm, she gave birth to a baby boy in July 2011, when she was 17.
As a result, the child was adopted into foster care shortly after being born. Furthermore, the mother has been charged with child cruelty and is currently serving five years in jail.
A court order bars identifying the family members in order to protect the children.
