The woman admitted on Nov. 23 she tried to impregnate her teenage daughter with a turkey baster since the woman had multiple sclerosis and could not have any more children.
The News-Sentinel is not naming the woman because it would identify her daughter, the victim of a sex crime.
The woman, who was interviewed by Fort Wayne Police detectives after the incident with her attorney present, said her daughter, who is under 18, agreed to be a surrogate for her. After the woman had sex with her husband, the woman told detectives she used a medicine dropper to draw her husband's semen from the condom and gave her daughter the dropper to insert the semen inside her.
The daughter, however, told detectives her mother made her go to the store and purchase a turkey baster, and that evening her mother asked her, "Are you ready to have my baby?" The daughter also told detectives her mother used the turkey baster to try to impregnate her and was told to stay still for 10 minutes.
Afterward, the daughter called her boyfriend's mother, who then called the police.
