A British mother made a shock confession to law enforcement after her 12-year-old daughter was discovered pregnant.
It turned out that the mother and her new husband planned to use the 12-year-old (unnamed because of her age) as a surrogate to carry a child, because the mother could no longer do it. As law enforcement learned that the child was pregnant because of a rape, the parents were immediately arrested.
The 12-year-old finally admitted to being raped and abused at home to a teacher she trusted. She told the teacher she felt horrible that her mother “sacrificed” her for a new marriage.
“She [the girl] told the teacher: ‘She made me do it. He raped me, but she asked me to do it, my own mum,'” prosecutor Steven Bailey said.
A British mother was arrested and jailed after she reportedly asked her partner to rape and impregnate her 12-year-old daughter.
The mother and stepfather admitted to plotting to use the girl as a surrogate after the mother learned that she was unable to have children. The court learned that the girl became pregnant as a result of the rape.
Judge Andrew Lockhart harshly addressed the mother and stepfather in court, according to Daily Mail:
Great trust is placed in the hands of those who are parents; and when that trust is broken, great damage is done to the child and to society. You planned to have a child together, but were told it was not possible. You both then decided that one way forward would be for her to become pregnant and for you to raise the child. That was a wicked thing to do. It had no regard for her age or for the future damage it would do, or for her welfare or the welfare of any child that might be born. This was not just rape, but rape with the intention of ensuring the pregnancy of a 12-year-old child.
