Update on 9-Year-Old Mother: Reported to Have Been Sterilized Without Parental Consent, Stepfather Might Be the Dad
Editor’s note: This story has been updated with new information that includes sources saying the girl might have been older than originally reported.
On Wednesday, TheBlaze reported about a 9-year-old girl in Mexico giving birth to a baby girl in late January. As if the story weren’t shocking enough, it has taken a few new twists.
Now, the U.K.’s Daily Mail reports that girl, named Dafne, will never get pregnant again because her mother says she was sterilized by doctors in a procedure done without parental permission.
The Daily Mail has also reported that there is speculation the father of the Dafne’s baby is not a teenage boyfriend, like the 9-year-old told to Zapopan authorities in the country’s western state of Jalisco. Some speculate it could Dafne’s stepfather. If this is the case, it would make Dafne’s baby, who was born Jan. 27 at Zoquipan Hospital weighing nearly 6 pounds, both the daughter and step-granddaughter of the man.
DNA testing is being conducted on many of Dafne’s male relatives to get to the bottom of the paternity issue. Neighbors also are reported by the Daily Mail saying they were surprised when they learned of the girl’s age, thinking she was older than 9 years old.
Here’s more from what the Daily Mail found out about the stepfather who supposedly left the area when the baby was born:
Neighbours in Colonial los Olivos told MailOnline that they were relieved that the stepfather, in his mid 40s, had left even if it was only for a short time.
They said he used to beat Dafne and sometimes their rows would spill out into the street where he would continue to hit her.
They also claimed he slept in the same bed as her and shared a bath and that he was abusing her just as he did his biological daughter, for which they claim he had spent time in jail.
A relative of the stepfather told MailOnline: “What he has done has shamed our family.
“I don’t know why the girl’s mother lets him carry on the way he has. They’re both liars and I think it’s terrible what has happened.
“Dafne is a child. She’s just a child. The girl’s mother is in love with him so she protects him, and this is what happens.”
The Daily Mail reported others saying that they believe Dafne’s mother is a prostitute who was also trying to recruit the child mother into the illicit trade. In Mexico sex with a person under the age of 15, even with consent, is a crime.
