In other news from that jewel south of the American border, a nine-year-old Mexican girl gave birth to a girl on January 27, 2013. The father is reported to be a seventeen-year-old. Here is the real astonishing part; it is said that the girl, who is one of ELEVEN children, and the seventeen-year-old, were dating… and nobody, I surmise, thought that was odd.
Here is a few excerpts from a piece at ABC:
According to Corona, the 17-year-old and Dafne were dating but the young girl is unwilling to release any further information regarding the association between the two.
“She did not realize that she was pregnant until the seventh month,” said Corona. Her boyfriend suggested Dafne move in with him and to raise the child together but when the young mother refused, her boyfriend “decided to leave town two months ago,” says Corona.
State authorities are searching for the father of the child to acquire his own account of what occurred between the two. The prosecutor’s office in the state of Jalisco said they are willing to request cooperation from neighboring state authorities if necessary.
Corona says the state prosecutor is “still open to the possibility of rape or child sex abuse.”
Dafne, who is one of 11 children, lives in Ixtlahuacan de los Membrillos, a poverty-stricken neighborhood 25 miles south of Guadalajara. “Her parents work all day and were not watching after her,” says Corona, “and therefore didn’t realize what was about to happen.”
Why is it that poor people love to churn out kids??? And then, people like this think that they can run to the U.S. to lead a better life; no wonder why Mexico has never, and will never, change for the better.
