In north-east China, an unnamed Chinese girl gave birth by Caesarean section to a healthy baby boy. She was 9 years old. She was brought 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.
Geez, I didn't get my period until I was 13. Wow. I feel bad for this girl because it's likely she was a victim of sexual assault, but I'm glad she and the baby survived what could have been a very traumatic pregnancy.
That's scary. I mean, it's hard to even believe someone can reach puberty that early first off (although I guess it's getting younge and younger), and just the whole concept that she had to deal with it at such a young age.
