Mother Forces Pregnant Teen to Drink Turpentine

 

The mother of a 16-year-old pregnant girl has been arrested after she allegedly forced her daughter to drink turpentine in an attempt to cause an abortion. The girl's two cousins were also arrested late last week.

The mother, 44-year-old Rozelletta Blacksire, has been charged by police in Columbus, Ohio, with first-degree cruelty to children and criminal abortion. The cousins, aged 26 and 28 were charged with criminal abortion.

The girl is three months pregnant and it is still undetermined as to whether the digestion of turpentine harmed the girl or the foetus. The case is being handled by the sex crimes unit, as it is thought the baby was conceived during an assault.

  huh  
 
The source link is broken. If the pregnacy was the result of a assult then can't she get a legal abortion?

  Turpentine  
 
is actually an effective treatment for lice and is used in some chest-rubs (like Vicks) to relieve congestion. Although no longer a common practice, turpentine was also used to treat intestinal parasites as it does have antiseptic properties. However, it does often cause renal failure (kidney malfunction) when ingested in all but the smallest doses. As far as inducing abortion, it certainly could do so (although it is more effective when instilled in the uterous) but it is far more likely to simply inhibit the health of the fetus, causing mental retardation and physical deformity.

She can, but apparently she doesn't want to, otherwise it wouldn't have been 'forced'.

Force feed the mother a jug of turpentine and call it a day.

  SAD  
 
The poor girl has such a vile witch for a mother not caring about her child or grandchild

I do enjoy Wikipedia, but you'll notice on the history of the Wikipedia article on turpentine that someone added the information after I posted here. I hope you weren't implying that I plagiarized?

Not at all, in fact I didn't even look at the page's history - just noticed a lot of what you said was there. There's nothing wrong with using them for info, they can be just as accurate as other pages.

Eh, we have our moments, but we're not that bad... Really, the only thing Ohioans do is drink, have sex and support crappy football teams. I speak mainly of the Cleveland area...

  @SKW and svengali  
 
we do the same thing here... sex, drinking, and the bucs... BUT, the thing is, most of the people in FL moved to FL and are from places like Ohio and "up there where it gets cold"... so you see, it's not FL that has the issues... it's that all the dumb ones move here and ruin our great state!!! :) we do call y'all notherners "snow birds" and most do have bird brains, especially behind the wheel... and especially from Ohio...
