This week we worked with a courageous rape survivor, Debbie. Read her shocking real life story below.
LIVING HELL! ENSLAVED AND RAPED – FOR 15 YEARS
Debbie, 36, was groomed by her abuser Philip, 50, aged just 13 and he was jailed for three months. But, Debbie, then 16, discovered she was pregnant and wrote to Philip to tell him her shocking news. Out of prison he turned up on her doorstep and convinced her they should be a family together. They had more children, but soon Philip became abusive – physically and sexually – and controlling. Over time he took away her clothes, forcing her to be naked at all times, and wouldn’t let her go to bed without his permission. When Debbie was 34 weeks pregnant with their 6th child he even beat her with a pole and tried to kill their baby. He was later tragically stillborn. She was saved when, during another brutal attack at 8 months pregnant, one of her children dialled 999 on a mobile phone hidden away for emergencies. Philip was found guilty of 15 charges, including rape, attempted child destruction and actual bodily harm. He was given six life sentences. Debbie bravely waived her right to anonymity to expose her abuser in Take A Break magazine.
