    Default 10-Year-Old Girl Gives Birth in Belgium

    BRUSSELS – A ten-year-old girl from Charleroi gave birth to a baby last year. The father was 13.

    "The pregnancy was a big surprise to the girl and her mother," says doctor Robert Chef from Charleroi. "The child came to me with unexplained abdominal pain. She had also put on weight. Her mother had even put her on a diet for a while but that had little effect. When we examined her it turned out she was nine months pregnant. The child was carrying a full term baby."

    What surprised the doctor the most was that the 10-year-old really looked her age. "Some girls look like a teenager of 15 or 16 at that age. But not this girl."

    Still the delivery went smoothly. The young mother was given special treatment however. She was not admitted to the regular maternity ward lest this raise too many curious questions. She was given a bed in the children's ward.

    "The father of the baby came to visit her there as well. Many pregnancies in young girls are the result of incest. But that was not at all the case here. The father was a schoolmate of 13. A young guy as well."

    Robert Chef says the parents of the girl did not respond angrily. "The grandmother immediately took charge of the baby. She said she would raise it as her own child."

    Yesterday the medical weekly De Huisarts reported that 57 Belgian 10-year-olds had been prescribed a birth control pill last year. Some for medical reasons, but others for actual birth control.

    Folk my age tend to respond (if at all) to stories like this with a combination of horrid disbelief and outright nonacceptance. Since this sort of thing "didn't happen when we were that age", we tend to superimpose our own beliefs and experiences over them.

    The problem with this ostrich-like mentality is the issue is not faced. Too often, this wounded sense of morality comes into play, leading folk my age to get their collective panties in a knot, yet do absolutely nothing to take steps toward addressing the problem. More often than not, it is ignored. By pretending something does not exist, it only tends to loom larger in the big picture.

    Sexual education should be a birthright to everyone, and it is indicated by the story above that it needs to be introduced at an ever earlier age. Publicly ringing one's hands and pretending that children are innocent does very little to help these same children after they've given birth.

    It's time for adults to stop being so damned clueless to the realities of life today and get down to the very adult issue of responsibility. It's heartbreakingly obvious that pretending the issue is "someone else's problem" will not work for the parents of these two, now three children.

    Craig, I disagree...this sort of thing did in fact happen when we were kids. However, they were sent to special hidden locations to have the babies and it never, never, never made the news. Age 10, that may be stretching it a bit. <no pun intended> but underage kids having kids has been happening for eons.
    A little more volume in the headphones please.

    I'm not stating it did not occur. What I'm stressing is this pious belief held by many that such things "never happened". There were kids actively involved with each other when I was in elementary school. Yet for some, the distant memory of youth, be it blissful or traumatic, distorts the current vision and perceptions held today.

    That new mother is only 10??? Where the eff were the parents? I'm guessing she reached the age to where everything's working. (?) Normally girls don't start getting their monthlies until early puberty, not 10. But then this is Belgium so...........

    I'm so outta touch with today's youth.
