    10-Year-Old Girl Gives Birth to Daughter - ABC News

    This is a different case than the URL above.

    [ame=http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=r-lX7BcLrV4]10 year old GIVES BIRTH - YouTube[/ame]

    The thing that kills me is - Google "10 year-old gives birth." 2.2 million results. Granted, the same story will be covered by many news outlets.

    For the sake of argument. Your child, ten or under, is pregnant. If this was your daughter, what would you do?

    My general answer is I wouldn't put her through the birth. HOWEVER if it's later into the pregnancy (4+ months) I would have her have a c section and raise the child myself, assuming the 10 year old's health wasn't at risk by going through it.

    I think it's a hoke.
    That was not a ten year old being wheeled into a delivery room.
    And I think the you tube video is fake.

    Okay. And how about the wiki list of all the young women who have become mothers under the age of 12.

    My first answer was I wouldn't put her through it. My second answer was based on the assumption the girl wouldn't know she was pregnant until she was showing. *Probably not even then; but I would know.* In that scenario, I would consult with doctors ASAP as to how this would affect her both physically and mentally/emotionally.

    IF I could get her through it, I would raise the child for her, if I were able.

    11 and 12 yes. Because that is when the majority of periods start.
    It may be real, but very few start their periods at around 9 or 10.

    Yes, I know it's Snopes. Just cross yourself and throw salt over your left shoulder, while standing on one foot, facing west.

    Yes and it is very rare, compared to the billions of us who are out there in the world.
