Infamous cult murderer Charles Manson, 80, reportedly has been planning to smuggle his own sperm out of prison in an effort to get his 26-year-old bride pregnant.
The strange claims come from Manson’s 47-year-old son, Matthew Roberts, who only learned that the killer was his father a decade ago. Roberts claims that his father will go to “any length” to get his bride, Afton Burton, pregnant.
“I understand that somehow he hopes to smuggle his sperm out of the prison,” Roberts said, according to the NY Daily News. “He is a very resourceful man, so he may have other plans too.”
Manson has been denied conjugal visits with Burton, so this may be the only way for him to get the 26-year-old pregnant. Roberts admits that he is actually going along with the plan in the hopes that he can raise the child to, as the NY Daily News states, “reject the evils in the family bloodline.”
“I’ve always wanted to raise a child, but for the purpose of raising a child and loving that child,” Roberts said. “So I could be the person in the outside world to provide a father figure for the son or daughter. Charles has wanted to be a father for many years. Part of the whole thing with him marrying Star is that he would love to have kids and he was really waiting for someone to come along and provide that. Star is the woman that Charles wants for that.”
Roberts says that despite his father’s horrific crimes, he should still be allowed to father a child if he wants to.
“Nothing that happened in his past can be approved of,” Roberts made clear. “However, Charlie does have the right to father a child. He, as a human being, deserves to fulfill his right to procreate and produce a child.”
According to Roberts, Manson and Burton are now legally married.
