There are dramatic reports coming out about a scandalous incident in South Carolina. Reports are saying that a 53-year-old woman was taken into the custody of South Carolina authorities for allegedly striking her 16-year-old daughter.
Reportedly, the Spartanburg woman discovered that her child had been having consensual sex with a family friend. Discovering a horrendous fact like this would make any parent completely go off. Yet, the authorities in this South Carolina community saw the alleged incident as just cause to apprehend the woman for her attempt to discipline her own wayward child.
We don’t yet know the full story behind the incident. But the surface events are so salacious that it is hard to blame the mother for her reaction. If this promiscuous 16-year-old child contracts a sexually transmitted disease or becomes pregnant, it is clear that the healthcare and newborn responsibility will fall to the 53-year-old adult in the house.
Minors, obviously, should not be able to freely make these kinds of decisions when they are not capable of handling the possible repercussions they may create.
