9 Year Old Girl Gives Birth

As a society, in my opinion the fact that this happens even once is despicable.  But, to know that it has happened more than once and there is photographic evidence is just beyond belief!  A nine year old Chinese school girl gave birth to a healthy 6lb baby boy on January 27 via Cesarean section according to a Chinese newspaper.  Apparently her family is pretty tight lipped about the whole situation but has reported it to the police.  In China, sex with anyone under the age of 14 is considered rape since anyone under the age of 14 is not old enough to actually consent to sex.  Police are still trying to establish paternity at this time. 

According to the Daily Mail:
"The youngest reported mother in the world - and the most bizarre of all young pregnancy cases - is five-year-old Lina Medina of Peru, who gave birth to a 6lb son named Gerardo in a Caesarean operation in 1939.

Lina Medina, (is pictured here) accompanied by her 11-month-old-son Gerardo, and Dr Lozada who helped with the birth. The picture was taken in 1939 in a hospital in Lima, Peru's capital.  Her father was arrested on suspicion of sexual abuse but was later released because of lack of evidence.


In 1957 another Peruvian girl, aged nine, gave birth to a girl weighing just over 6lb and, curiously, it was in 2006 that yet another Peruvian girl, aged eight, gave birth to a 4lb 4oz girl.


Several other girls aged nine, from Thailand, Singapore, Rwanda and Brazil, have also given birth.


Mothers aged as young as 10 and 11 have also become an increasing occurrence.


The youngest mother in Britain is believed to have been 11 when she got pregnant and 12 years old when she gave birth."

This is just all very sickening to me!  My daughter is 7 and I cannot fathom her becoming pregnant or having a child.  It is unnatural and would be very hard for me to raise both my daughter and her child from behind bars, because you can bet your sweet bottom that I would stand trial for the castration and slow, torturous death of whatever man was behind it!

YOU ARE RIGHT
i cant even grasp what would be going on in that child s head poor little girl isn't supposed to be raising a child shes supposed to be being a child her self ...

It is just sickening, isn't it Katie?! I am so outraged!!

Debs said...

This makes me physically sick. Having been abused myself as child and raped as an adult nothing gets me angry so quick as this kind of abuse. Also having a 13 yr old daughter does not comprehend in my head that even she could give birth.
Like you i would do time for anyone that so much as looked at my daughter in that way.
Somethings are just incomprehensible in my opinion and in this day and age there should be more done to stop it happening!
Rant over!! lol

Debs, I am so sorry to know that you were abused in ANY way.

No child should ever have to endure physical or mental abuse from anyone, PERIOD! In my opinion this is an unforgivable act.

I agree that we should hang the offenders up by their toenails, and give them the severest punishment allowed to make examples for those who wish to follow in their footsteps!!!

Sara Elizabeth said...

This sickens me. Like Deb, I was sexual abused in my life. I thank God not to the degree that some girls and women have been. There is nothing worse than having your innocence robbed from you. Babies having babies is not right, and the men who impregnated them will rot in hell for all of enternity.

Crazy Working Mom said...

Here Here, Sara! I second that opinion! ...and I am sorry that you endured sexual abuse.

Kara said...

I agree, stuff like that is sickening. That poor little girl having to go through that.

Crazy Working Mom said...

Kara, I know! I cannot even imagine!!!

Sandee said...

CrAzY Working Mom said...

Let's see if I can say in just one word how this makes me feel:

SICK!

I can't even imagine! And to think that I thought that a 13 or 14 year old having a child in middle school (yes this does happen as I know a teacher who has some of these girls in her classes) made it babies raising babies. This is just SICK!

CrAzY Working Mom said...

Kim: I agree! Sick indeed.

"Lois Grebowski" said...

I can't say anything nice about this... Too angry that someone would do this to a child.

Katie said...

Tammy said...

OMG that is beyond unreal! I think they need some serious jail time for that! Those poor little girls!

Shana said...

AMEN

Linda said...

I find it rather mind-boggling that a female child of only 5 years old would even be ovulating and capable of getting pregnant. Not that I don't find it totally disgusting that there are sick individuals out there who would even consider sex with a child to begin with. They should all be hung out to dry - no questions asked.

Sara Cart said...

1) I agree with you.
2) EWWWWWWW!
3) Remember that I own an 38 and I don't miss.

Mama Michie (aka Michaela) said...

It blows my mind that things like this happen!
It is sick and disgusting and honestly, I think you were being tame when you said that the offenders should be hung by their toenails... I can imagine something else that they should be hung up by.
Those poor poor girls.
