  • What right did the doctor have to sterilize her? Was it a medical thing? The poor girl would surely have wanted more children in the future. I hope the family takes care of the situation in whatever way they see fit.

  • Did you also hear the doctors made her sterile against her families wishes?

    That story makes e think I hope that 17 year is comes out of hiding and is shot dead.

  • I read that the other day... She got pregnant when she was 8. My daughter will be 8 this year. I can't imagine such a small child getting pregnant. So sick.

  • Not surprised about her getting pregnant, but surprised she survived carrying to term and giving birth. Sad for her. Some other cultures are not as diligent about protecting children. Not that the culture in Mexico advocates it, but it certainly isn't surprising to me.  The fact that the guy is in hiding makes me think that he won't be around to actually be a father.  I'm sure the family will take the matter into their own hands, and I certainly don't blame them.

  • Hard to hear. I had a friend that was molested in a foreign country when she was very young. Thank goodness she was not old enough for her period/giving birth. But, she still deals with the devestation today. The boy in hiding is such a coward and I hope he fesses up to his crime. He also needs mental attention... Come on, 9?

  • Did she live through it? Did the baby survive? That must be a nightmare for her and her parents. How awful!
