WTF Kind Of Trend Is This?
A nine-year-old girl of the Apurina tribe in Brazil's Amazon rainforest gave birth to a baby earlier this week and doctors said on Friday police were investigating whether she was raped.
"We know of early pregnancies in some tribes, but I have never heard of a nine-year-old getting pregnant and giving birth before," said Christiane da Costa, a doctor in the hospital where the girl underwent a Caesarean section on Wednesday in Manaus, the capital of the Amazon state.
A spokesman for the local healthcare administration said they had no reports of such cases in the Amazon state "at least for several decades".
And this case in Rwanda.
A nine-year old girl who were defiled and impregnated has finely given birth to a healthy baby boy at Butare University Hospital south of the country, local media reported here Friday.
I've also recently read a report of another 9 year old girl in Africa giving birth, but can't find a link. Sorry.
I have a good friend who is an 8 year old child. To imagine she could be preggers and a mother at 9 years of age is disgusting. But this shit happens. It probably happens much more than we know.
