Remember the good old days when 9-year-old girls couldn’t get pregnant? Well, that is no longer the case.
According to multiple reports, a 9-year-old girl in Mexico successfully gave birth to a daughter on January 27.
Authorities are currently looking for the 17-year-old boy who impregnated Dafne (the mother) when she was only 8-years-old. So far they have had no luck. Although there are still a lot of blanks to fill in, authorities from the state prosecutor’s office are filing this incident as “a rape or child sex abuse case,” according to Mirror News.
Both Dafne and her child, who was born a healthy 5.95 pounds at the Zoquipan Hospital in Jalisco, are believed to be at home and doing well after the birth. The hospital plans to do frequent and extensive checkups as a result of the mother’s young age.
Dafne isn’t the only young girl to become impregnated and give birth in recent times. Last year, a 10-year-old in Colombia also gave birth to a baby girl.
