I think that often, as the girls are so young, and no-one is expecting it, no-one realises they are pregnant until fairly late in the piece, and then I guess it becomes a really thorny question ie late term abortions...
Or in indigenous populations perhaps there is not that option due to lack of resources, or religious belief? No idea really, just thinking out loud.
I don't even know if I want to read the article ... My daughter is 10 and to think of someone the same age having a baby is just so, so wrong
Poor girl. So sad.
That's terrible, Ive just been on wiki after seeing this thread and it has a list of the youngest known mothers under 12- its truly shocking..I'm speechless I actually wish I hadn't read it - majority of the girls on the list were raped & abused.
Makes me so sad for these poor children!!!!
