If anyone needs an example of why people need to teach their children how and why to use contraceptives, look no further than Knoxville, Tennessee’s Desmond Hatchett and the mothers of his 30 children. Yes, this man is 33 years old and has 30 children.
From Yahoo News,
Desmond Hatchett, 33, of Knoxville has children with 11 different women, reports WREG-TV.
The state already takes half his paycheck and divides it up, which doesn’t amount to much when Hatchett is making only minimum wage. Some of the moms receive as little as $1.49 a month. The oldest child is 14 years old.
Hatchett explains how he reached such a critical mass: He had four kids in the same year. Twice.
Back in 2009 when Hatchettwas in court to answer charges that many of the mothers were not receiving child support, he had 21 children. At the time, he said he was not going to father any more kids, but he ended up having nine more in the past three years.
The state cannot order Hatchett to stop making babies. He hasn’t broken any laws, according to the report.
I feel really bad for those kids. They were born to mothers who could not wield enough self-control to use some sort of birth control while having sex with this man. And he has also chosen to be irresponsible, as he could not find some kind of job or jobs to pay his baby mothers more than $1.49 a month.
The sad part about it all is that this man is still probably having unprotected sex with many more weak minded women. And only a weak minded woman would deal with a weak minded man such as Desmond.
