In north-east China, an unnamed Chinese girl gave birth by Caesarean section to a health baby boy. She was 9 years old. She was bought to a hospital in Changchun when she was eight and a half months pregnant, and gave birth there, a Chinese newspaper reported.

According to reports, local police haven't determined who the father is, but are investigating -- in this province sex with a minor under the age of 14 comes with an automatic rape conviction and jail sentence.

This new mother is among the world's youngest mothers, but not the youngest. The youngest reported mother in the world is Lina Medina of Peru, who was pregnant at five years, eight months old, and gave birth to a normal boy at age six, five months. According to a Time magazine article, Lina's boy grew up perfectly healthy. When the boy was in high school, the doctor who performed Lina's Caesarean reported: "Lina's boy is normal and intelligent. He wants to take up electronics."

That is just awful. And I can already hear a bunch of Christian fundies lauding praise over her for not getting an abortion.
You're just jealous because the voices are talking to me and not you.

I knew children were having children, but I had no idea the children having children were so young. I didn't know it was even possible for a five-year-old to become pregnant. What a concept.Sad

I'm so glad I wasn't the only one thinking that. I mean, I've got all the equipment and I didn't know.
