Nine-year-old Girl Gives Birth to a Baby Boy in Changchun
An unnamed 9-year-old Chinese girl gave birth by Caesarean section to a 6-pound baby boy. After being 8 1/2 months pregnant, the girl’s parents brought her to the hospital to give birth, MX reported.
According to reports, parents have sought legal advice and local police are currently investigating the situation. In Changchun, the father of the baby would automatically be arrested for sex with a minor under the age of 14.
While you may scratch your head in bafflement or groan in disbelief at the biological and psychological improbability, this is unfortunately not one for the history books. The youngest mother in the world is 6-year-old Lina Medina from Peru. Lina was pregnant at 5-year-old and gave birth when she turned 6. Lina’s boy grew up healthy, but she never revealed the father of the child nor the circumstances of her impregnation.
