Girl aged 9 gives birth

Healthy newborn delivered by caesarean in China


A 9-year-old girl has supposedly given birth to a baby boy in China, it was reported today in MX, a free Australian newspaper.


The girl, from Songyuan, China, had the baby by caesarean on January 27 at Changchun hospital, in the Jilin province. The young mum and her newborn are said to be okay. Staff at the hospital have reportedly refused to comment.


The details of the girl’s pregnancy aren’t known. It was reported by another source that the 9-year-old’s parents had sought legal advice, because sex with a child under 14 means an automatic rape conviction.
