Human selfishness and cruelty knows no bounds. This is just sickening.
A British surrogate mother of twins, one of whom was born disabled, has said the intended mother rejected the unhealthy child, referring to her as a “dribbling cabbage”.
The mother, also British, took the healthy boy but refused to accept his twin sister because of her severe muscular condition Congenital Myotonic Dystrophy, the Sun reported.
The surrogate mother, referred to as Jenny, had given birth to the twins for a couple in a £12,000 agreement and has raised the separated sister.
The surrogate mother said: “I’ll never forget what she said on the phone.
“I remember her saying to me, ‘She’d be a f****** dribbling cabbage! Who would want to adopt her? No one would want to adopt a disabled child’.
“I was shocked.
“I could not believe what I was hearing.”
Two embryos were implanted into the surrogate mother’s womb and a few weeks after becoming pregnant she learned she was carrying twins.
The surrogate mother said: “I got into surrogacy because I wanted to help a mother who couldn’t have children.
“But I feel very angry because of what she’s done to the baby girl.
“I’m glad she is miles away and I’ll never see her in the street.
“I hate the couple for what they did.”
She should. God bless her moving forward with the child, who is much better off with someone who actually cares about life and can show the necessary compassion.
