Mother Sells Her Infant Son So She Can Buy A New Car!

By Robert Paul Reyes

"A Florida woman was charged with trying to sell her infant son in order to pay for a new car, police said Tuesday.

The baby`s grandmother brokered the deal and initially demanded $75,000 but agreed to cut the price to $30,000 when told the prospective buyer could not get a bank loan, the Florida Department of Law Enforcement (FDLE) said.


The mother of the eight-week-old boy, Stephanie Bigbee Fleming, 22, of Bradenton, Florida, was to receive $9,000 of the proceeds, the FDLE said.

"Fleming planned to purchase a new vehicle from the money received," an FDLE spokeswoman said."


When a baby is born mother and grandmother will get together to plan how to baby-proof the home, but this mom and grandma got together to conspire how to sell the baby.

The mother sold her infant son in order to pay for a new vehicle, it`s despicable to value a material possession more than your own flesh and blood. But there are too many people in this world, and I wish more females would decide to purchase a new ride instead of bringing one more hungry mouth into this overpopulated world.

A new car smell beats the crap out of the stench of soiled diapers. It`s a lot less expensive to maintain a new car than to raise a baby. After a few years if your automobile starts to have mechanical problems, you can trade it in for a new one, but you are stuck with your child for eighteen long years.

The two women have been charged with illegal sale of a child, and the baby remains in state custody.
