Mothers are supposed to be the prime examples of love, expressed in being protective of their children. But once in a while we hear of monster mums whose behaviour defy logic and often puzzling based on how we saw our own mums take care of us from the day we were in her womb until we became adults.
However, occasionally, there are mums from hell. And one of them is Margarita de Jesus Zapata Moreno, 45, who is accused of pimping her 12 daughters' virginity for $200 each!
She was detained in Bogota earlier this week, following a complaint from one of her daughters whom she made sex trade workers. The daughter, now 16 and pregnant, reported her mum to authorities because she ordered her daughter to about the baby,
Also arrested was 51-year-old Tito Cornelio Daza, the alleged father of the unborn baby.
Reports said that Ms Moreno has 14 children, and she would peddle their chastity when the daughters turned 12. The other two are a boy of 11 and a girl of 9, not under the care of the Department of Social Service.
Her daughter who complained is being help by psychologist from the Colombian Family Welfare Institute.
The money raised from selling her daughters' virginities are used to pay their household bills.
Ms Moreno denied the accusations from her El Buen Pastro prison cell. Mr Dazo is jailed at the Modelo Prison. If Ms Moreno is found guilty of the charges, she faces a prison term of 10 years.
While cases of mums pimping their daughters and even sons are not new, what is relatively new is teen girls or young women selling their virginity through the Internet such as this one.
The young woman involved is 20-year-old from Brazil named Catarina Miglionni who wants to auction her chastity for at least $160,000. To go around prostitution laws, she offered to have sex on a flight from Australia to the U.S.
However, in the next video, the situation is the opposite of Ms Moreno because the daughter here is selling her virginity to save her mother.
Now, if Ms Moreno is a mum from hell, 18-year-old Rebecca Bernardo is a daughter from heaven but who has to pass through hell out of love for her mum.
