Another Achievement for Mexico: 9-year-old gives birth in Mexico; police search for teenage father

Mexico: home of the seven-day spring break binge, cheap consumer goods, drug cartels and 9-year-old pregnancies. Last week, a 9-year-old girl gave birth to a baby girl in a Guadalajara hospital. Our favorite part of the story is that the girl's parents, upon the babies arrival into the world, notified the police of the girl's 17-year-old boyfriend who is now on the run. Were the parents not aware that their young daughter was pregnant when she began showing signs of possibly being pregnant on the jungle gym? And if so, wouldn't they notice a teenager hanging out with their daughter? Either way, we're sure this baby is going to grow up in a loving home.
