Authorities in Mexico have discovered that the girl who gave birth two weeks ago is between 12 to 13, and not actually 9 as her parents said.
Also, the Jalisco state prosecutors say the girl was impregnated by her stepfather and not her alleged 17-year-old boyfriend.
…“Authorities announced last week that a 9-year-old had given birth to a baby girl and that they were looking for her boyfriend.
“But prosecutors said Wednesday that DNA tests revealed the baby’s father is the girl’s 44-year-old stepfather and that he is under arrest.
“They said an anthropological study of the girl showed she is between 12 and 13. The girls’ parents didn’t have a birth certificate for her and initially told authorities she was 9.”
“The girl, identified as Dafne, was impregnated by her 44-year-old stepfather, according to Lino Gonzalez Corona, a spokesman for the Jalisco State Prosecutor’s Office. The stepfather is under arrest after admitting to having his first sexual encounter with Dafne in April 2012 and a second in June.
“Dafne’s mother was unaware of the sexual relationship, according to Corona. She thought the baby’s father was a 17-year-old boy whom her daughter had met at a local market. She learned of the pregnancy in November 2012, two months before Dafne delivered a healthy baby girl by C-section Jan. 27, 2013.
“ ‘Due to her young age and to the fact that her body was not ready to give birth,’ said Dr. Enrique Rabago, director of Zoquipan Hospital, “the medical team decided a C-Section was the best option” for both mother and child.”
The article also says the medical team decided to insert a contraceptive implant to avoid pregnancy. He said the implant was a flexible rod inserted in the upper arm. It works up to three years.
So what do you think? Are you surprised the stepfather is the father, according to the prosecutors? Are you surprised that the girl is older according to the tests? What do you think about giving the girl a C-section? What do you think about inserting birth control?
