14-year-old forced to get pregnant

14-year-old forced to get pregnant, A UK MOTHER forced her 14-year-old daughter to become pregnant with sperm bought over the internet after she was prevented from adopting any more children.

The daughter, a virgin, gave birth after two years of regularly inseminating herself with the sperm because she was too scared to refuse her “domineering” mother, The Guardian has reported.

The adoptive mother, who cannot be named for fear of identifying her daughter and grandchild is now serving a five-year prison sentence after admitting child cruelty.

Details of the shocking case became public after permission was granted to report a previously secret court judgement.

In his judgement Family division judge Mr Justice Jackson described “an abiding sense of disbelief that a parent could behave in such a wicked and selfish way towards a vulnerable child.”

The mother had adopted three children as babies from abroad.She had chosen never to give birth herself because of a health condition and had undergone a sterilisation.

But when she was denied approval to adopt a fourth baby she turned to her teenage daughter. The judgement explains that “The AI [artificial insemination] programme was planned when the daughter was 13, began when she was 14 and ended when she became pregnant with her child aged 16”.

The mother subjected her child to a “degrading, humiliating and, on occasions, painful” ordeal. Over two years the daughter had to inseminate herself seven times, “alone in her bedroom, using syringes of semen and douches prepared by the mother”.

It is believed she miscarried at 14. But, it was only shortly after birth that her vile scheme began to unravel.
Midwives were alarmed at the “pushy and insensitive” mother who tried to prevent her daughter breastfeeding the new-born saying, “we don’t want any of that attachment thing”.

And when the mother attempted to remove the baby from the ward they called in child protection workers.
On four previous occasions social services were alerted over concerns about the children’s welfare but on each found no immediate child protection concerns.

In a statement, the local Safeguarding Children Board said: “Nothing can change what has happened to the children in this truly terrible case.

“It is clear that public bodies must highlight the major public policy issues which arise from this case.
“The relevant local Safeguarding Children Board has undertaken a serious case review and they aim to have this published in the coming weeks.

“The lessons from this case are already being put into practice as the relevant agencies are starting to implement its draft findings.”
