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.

4th grade.



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 awful that a 4th grader is going through this. I thought that young teens had it bad with pregnancy. 4th grade should be sooooo far removed from any serious realities such as this.

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.

Historically the age range for female puberty has long been nine to fourteen, with twelve being the most common age. Nine isn't unheard of. Pregnant nine year olds is another story though.

Apparently, the youngest known birth was in India, and the girl was 6. She was 5 when she became pregnant...



seriously sad.

Ugh. That is kind of sick to think anyone would want to have sex with someone so young.

6 and 9 year olds having babies!?! You would think early pregnancy alone would kill them at their young age, they are practically still babies themselves! My daughter is 6 and...no way! Terrible.

It's wonderful that her and her child are fine and healthy, but it's just horrible that it happened in the first place! Poor girl. ):
