10-Year-Old Girl Gives Birth (PHOTO)

Gladys Chelagat, a Kenyan girl, has become a mother at the age of just 10, according to reports.

She gave birth by Caesarean section to a baby weighing 2.8kg at Kericho district hospital.

Who would have done such evil to the innocent 10-year-old girl?

Also in Mexico, a 10-year-old girl gave birth to a premature baby boy by Caesarian section at 31 weeks.

The girl arrived at the Women’s Hospital in the city of Puebla suffering from life-threatening complications, including seizures, as a result of the pregnancy. The infant was in poor shape as well — born at just 3.3 pounds and currently recovering from pneumonia.

A pregnancy at such a young age raises many red flags. The Puebla state Attorney General’s office is now investigating who the father is and whether the girl was raped.

Can a Child Consent to Sex?

At just 10 years old, many would argue that a child cannot consent to sex. At such a young age, a girl is not in a position to fully understand their actions, making it impossible for them to meaningfully agree to engage in any type of sexual activity.

In the United States, most states set the age of consent, the age at which an individual can legally consent to sexual intercourse under any circumstance, at 16 years old. In Puebla, the age of consent is 12 years old.

Consequences of Child Labor

In addition to the extensive emotional trauma that sexual abuse and a pregnancy at such a young age can cause, there are also very severe health risks — some fatal. Mothers under 16 years old are actually four times more likely to die during childbirth.

In addition, young moms are more susceptible to developing anemia, postpartum hemorrhage, depression and other mental disorders. Given the difficulty of child birth on a body that is not fully developed, minors also make up 65% of the women who develop an obstetric fistula, a condition in which a hole develops in the birth canal, causing an uncontrollable leakage of urine and feces into the vagina.

    There are so many signs around us to show how wonderful HE (ALLAH S.W.T) is. This is just one of HIS numerous inexhaustible wonders. Yes, we may say its one of the signs of ‘wal-ashri’ ‘evening time’ translated as end of the world. Nevertheless, hypocrisy is what is killing the world today. Who among us wants to claim ignorance of the fact that in per second rating, the world keeps deteriorating in the area of sex? Now that a father goes into bed with his own daughter; brothers and sisters of the same parent are impregnating each other; …..
    We all need to be watchful of what happen in our various homes and neighbourhood.
