Mother charged after allegedly faking cancer and raising thousands in donations
But… But… Christians say that women who are mothers are total saints, so godly, so pure, incapable of mean or selfish acts! They say parenthood instantly turns someone into a pillar of the community, someone who is more giving and ethical than a childless or child free woman.
And she is married, too. Christians claim that singles are not as mature and responsible as marrieds, but that they are immature and not as grown up as marrieds.

The 35-year-old married mother from Chillicothe, Ohio has been charged with felony theft after allegedly posing as a cancer patient and weaseling thousands of dollars in donations in a scheme said to have fooled her own family.
The disturbing revelations of Taylor’s tear-jerker were revealed earlier this month after an anonymous tipster led to her surprisingly cancer-free medical records being subpoenaed, the Columbus Dispatch reported.
By then, Taylor — who had claimed to be undergoing vigorous chemotherapy while fighting not only cancer of the small intestine but heart disease and lupus — had reportedly amassed at least $21,000 in donations.
In an online blog on the website CaringBridge.org, Taylor regularly documented her suffering and steadfast pledge to get better.
“For those of you who don’t know, last week was really hard for me. I pushed myself a little too much (shocking I know) and wasn’t prepared for what the increase in chemo…” she most recently posted on March 3.
Thousands of dollars was raised for a woman who said she had cancer and other illnesses, but police said she was faking it.
Mindy Taylor, 35, originally of Smithton, was indicted on theft charges in Ohio, where she now lives.
Police said Taylor faked three illnesses to raise money for cosmetic laser treatments and to pay off personal debt.
Authorities said folks donated more than $21,000 to help Taylor. $7,000 was raised at a dinner in Smithton.
Police believe she acted alone. They also said she lied to her parents.
