Nine-Year-Old Girl Gives Birth

A nine-year-old Chinese girl gave birth last week in the province of Jilin. Both the mother and child are doing well. The girl's parents have filed a complaint to the police as their child was statutorily raped. As young as this girl is, she is not actually the record holder. That distinction goes to Lina Medina who was only five when she gave birth in 1939 in Peru.

"A nine-year-old schoolgirl has become one of the world's youngest mothers after giving birth to a 6lb baby by caesarian section.

The baby was delivered on January 27 at a hospital in Changchun, in the North Eastern Chinese province of Jilin, when the girl was eight-and-a-half months pregnant, according to a local newspaper.

The City Evening News reported that the girl and her child were both well, but that her parents have lodged a complaint to the police.
The youngest girl ever to have given birth is thought to be Lina Medina, of Peru, who gave birth at five-years-old in 1939.
