What. The. Fuck.
Here’s the story from The Mirror.
A GIRL of 10 has caused outrage after she became one of the world’s youngest mothers.
The child, who has not been named, gave birth to a healthy daughter in a Colombian hospital.
It was her first visit to a doctor in connection with her pregnancy.
The girl is a member of the indigenous Wayuu tribe in the La Guajira Peninsula and was 39 weeks pregnant when she underwent a Caesarean section.
Doctors carried out the risky operation because of her age – and both mother and daughter, who weighed just 5lbs, are said to be “doing well”.
I have no words.
Hospital director Efrain Pacheco Casadiego said: “At a time when [the girl] should be playing with dolls, they go to having to take care of a baby. It’s shocking.”
The age and identity of the father remains a mystery.
Alejandro Samplayo, director of parenthood organisation Instituto Colombiano Bienestar Familiar, said: “Since it’s a Wayuu girl we are trying to respect all of their rights since they have autonomy and their own jurisdiction.”
The girl is not the first pre-teen to give birth.
In November last year a 10-year-old Mexican girl gave birth to a son.
I bet it’s one of her relatives who’s the father.
