Declaration of Jane Blackmore
Based on the histories taken from my FLDS patients, I can also estimate that 30-40% of the FLDS women I delivered were under the age of 18 at the time that their first child was delivered. The ages of the underage mothers at the time they first gave birth ranged from 15 to 17.
In addition to these underage mothers whose babies I delivered, over the years, I have also taken histories and physicals from and treated several FLDS girls younger than 18 whose pregnancies terminated in miscarriages. Elissa Wall was one of these girls.
