    11 yr old girl gives birth in NE USA

    An 11-year-old girl in the Northeast recently gave birth to a baby boy, according to the girl’s family.
    "My daughter and baby are fine, and the baby is absolutely beautiful," stated the girl’s mother.
    The girl and her family are not being named in order to protect the girl’s privacy.
    According to Dr. Manny Alvarez, managing health editor of FoxNews.com, the girl’s age places her in significant dangers
    "A very comprehensive approach to her care needs to be instituted early in her pregnancy," Alvarez said.
    A recent report by the Guttmacher Institute said U.S. teen pregnancies were up 3 percent in 2006.
    But of course, this case is not about a teenager, Dr. Abdulla Al-Khan, a leading high-risk obstetrician noted; it’s about a pre-teen, or child, who’s body is not built to carry a child yet.
    "Her body is clearly not defined for pregnancy with its short stature," Al-Khan said. "Her chest is not extensively developed for breast tissue, her bones aren’t quite fused, and once you expose a child this young to high amounts of progesterone and especially estrogen, there is controversy that it could halt her growth."

    "Babies having babies"!

    Unfortunately that is not an unusual occurence. They don't all make the news.

    When I was teaching D.A.R.E. several years ago, I had one (that I was aware of) 13 year-old who was aready a mother. (Of course, since she was 13, that means she had the baby when she was 12.)

    Still unreal though.
