Nine-year-old girl who gives birth to baby is then sterilized by doctors

Quote:
The nine-year-old girl who gave birth in Mexico will never have another child after she was sterilized by the doctors who delivered her baby - against her family's wishes, it was revealed today.

The youngster was given the procedure following the shock delivery without the consent of her own mother.

She has now reported the Zoquipan Hospital in Guadalajara to the local human rights commission which is investigating.

What an awful story...

Anyone have any link to why the doctors done this?

Surely the girl should have been taken into care. Her mother is a sex worker and refuses to cooperate with police regarding the rape of her daughter. I don't know how those things work in Mexico though, so perhaps doctors felt it was the least worse option for her.

Every line in that story is just a complete mind****. I read it yesterday and thought it was bad enough, but holy moses, a mother who doesn't realise underage sex is a crime (which presumes she was aware the kid was having sex) and a string of male relatives who may have had sex with her?

OK, it's the mail, so probably 50% of that is made up, but it's fairly horrific.

I would be skeptical that the hospital sterilised her for no good reason. There are rare cases when delivering a C-section birth that it is necessary to perform a hysterectomy to save the mother. If they did this, then I presume it's because her young age presented a serious complication to the procedure which left them no choice. I doubt the surgeon just decided to sterilise her on a whim.

Well I'm only making assumptions about it. I'd be inclined to trust the doctors rather than the mother in this case though. But yeah, it's pretty depressing any way you look at it.

That poor child.

In this case, the media attention can only be a good thing - hopefully someone will be able to take her and the baby out of that awful environment.

Such a shocking story. I'm surprised she was allowed to go home with her mother. She was eight years old when she got pregnant. That means she was raped, at least once, probably more. What sort of life does the poor girl have ahead of her? Apparently she doesn't go to school and spends all day doing housework, while being someone's play thing

my eldest child is 8 now and i couldn't imagine how anyone would think it was ok for their 9yr old child to have a baby
the poor thing is just there as a slave by the sounds of it and now she'll have more to deal with...scary thing is there was another story of a 12yr old that had twins in mexico the same day
children should be aloud to be children its too short as it is
just because of some sicko's

Best option would have been to sterilize her mother before the poor child was brought into a sh1tty home.

Would you stop. That's a little girl who's apparently been repeated raped and put through a childbirth her little body isn't built for, then sterilised. How you can make a joke about it is beyond me.

Maybe they did it so that she would not have to go throught the trauma of being pregnant and giving birth at such a young age again. From the sounds of it she is just being given back to her rapist so they could have thought they were doing her a small mercy. It might sound archaic to us but you're talking about a country that is incredibly violent, corrupt and backward.
