In a story as sad as it is alarming, Mexican officials say a 9-year-old girl has just given birth to a baby there. The girl's mother said her daughter was only 8 when she was impregnated by a 17-year-old boy who has since run away. Authorities in Jalisco state are looking for the teen "to get his story" because the girl doesn't understand what has happened. "This is a rape or child sex abuse case," the state prosecutor said (um, duh). The little girl and her baby girl, who was born Jan. 27, have been released from the hospital. Both are said to be doing well but doctors plan to monitor them carefully due to the new mother's age. [Source]
