9-year-old gives birth: 17-year-old father sought by Mexico authorities | Parental Responsibility | Scoop.it

A 9-year-old gives birth and Mexican authorities are searching for a 17-year-old, allegedly the father. The baby and underage mom, who did not realize she was with child until her seventh month, are healthy and resting, according to authorities in a Wednesday conference.


Citing a report from ABC News on Feb.6 report, the child mom gave birth on Jan. 27 in Jalisco, Mexico. Obviously, this sounds more like a horrible or unthinkable hoax. However, by all accounts, the 9-year-old girl gave birth to a healthy baby.


Lino Ginzalez Corona, from the local prosecutor's office spoke to the young mom, who told her she was involved in a "loving relationship." However, she is taking much of what the girl says with a grain of salt.

"Due to her young age, we don’t know if she is being entirely truthful," Corona said.
