An American woman living in the UK has been in the news for her cruel and inhumane actions.  She is the mother of three children, all of whom she has adopted.  According to the news, she wanted to adopt a fourth child but was rejected. This rejection apparently gave her the disgusting idea to force her 14-yar-old daughter to get pregnant using none other than syringes of donor sperm.  The 14-year-old was forced to “inseminate herself with syringes of sperm purchased over the Internet” by her mother.

Mother’s Behavior Wicked and Selfish

The judge overseeing the case called the mother’s behavior “wicked” and “selfish.”  According to the judge, the daughter was taken aback by her mother’s plan, but believed that if she inseminated herself with donor sperm then maybe her mother would love her more.  According to Business Week, “After six more attempts with the donor sperm, the woman's daughter gave birth to a baby boy in July 2011, when she was 17.”

The American woman is now serving five-years in jail for child cruelty.  In my opinion, she should have been given a much harsher sentence.

Why was she allowed to adopt a child in the first place?  I wonder if she even had to go through an evaluation process.

What do you think?  Do you think the mother should have been given a harsher sentence?
