How awful. That poor girl, 11 years old.

I can't even understand how you can let an 11 year old go through a pregnancy... I'm rather pro choice, which means people can also choose to keep the baby (in happiest cases), but that story just seems wrong to me...

Agreed. Plus in all likelihood the girl was 10 when she fell pregnant. Why would a 10 year old be away from her parents and in the company of a man anyway?

The 19 year old father should have known better.

Well, apparently even HE didn't know how to use a condom... or (and?) he's just really stupid.

I note that they married on the day of the birth - at 11???? As far as I am aware we cannot wed until 16 in any circumstances in this country - I may be wrong. And it seems as though their 'age of consent' is lower than ours - 14 (not 16 as in this country), though I personally think it should be lowered but that's another story.

Where were the parents? I know it is not always easy to keep your eye on kids these days but really...! In the UK she'd have been taken into care no doubt long before this (not necessarily a good thing).

I just cannot imagine giving birth aged 11 - horrendous!! And imagine being just 11 years older than your child!! I was only 19 years older which was great, but 11??

And of course the thing is that unless she gives the baby up for adoption (unlikely I guess) she will have the responsibility of another life all through her teens which should after all be carefree?!! And for the rest of her life!

Sad story in so many ways.

That's sad, very very sad.

I have a feeling, mere speculation, that the 19-yr-old was molested at an earlier age.

He should still know better. Guilty!
