so fucked up. Now bear with me - this is the Daily Mail so they won’t be the most feminist in covering this, but it is agreed that this is an effed up situation.
The nine-year-old girl who gave birth in Mexico will never have another child after she was sterilized by the doctors who delivered her baby - against her family’s wishes, it was revealed today.
The youngster was given the procedure following the shock delivery without the consent of her own mother.
She has now reported the Zoquipan Hospital in Guadalajara to the local human rights commission which is investigating.
I hope something good comes of this. No one deserves to have their reproductive rights violated - even if they’ve given birth at 9. Unacceptable.
Also kind of surprised this hasn’t been given more attention in the feminist news cycle.
