While the nine year old girl and her lover who's a 17 years old teenager are actually a couple. Official of the prosecutor's office, Jorge Villasenor, described the encounter as a case of rape or child abuse. According to Dafne's mother, the father who is 17 ran away. And authorities are now searching for him. His capture, however, isn't going to change the fact that in Mexico about 480,000 girls between ages 15 and 18 give birth.
This new is just sad. Dafne isn't the first 9 years old to give birth. In fact, since the new millenium, she is the 15th 9-year-old Mom. Our country, Philippines, isn't new to this news because in 2007, an unidentified 9-year-old girl also gave birth in Barangay Turo, Bocaue Bulacan.
