12 Year Old Girl Gives Birth...

April - posted on 04/07/2011 ( 14 moms have responded )





Neither the 12-year-old Dutch girl nor her family knew she was pregnant. It's doubtful she was showing, because her teachers hadn't noticed anything either. But while her class was out on a field trip, the girl from Groningen started complaining of stomach pains...

Being way smarter than we are, the teachers soon recognized the girl was in labor and called an ambulance. Medics arrived at the scene, but there wasn't enough time to take her to the hospital. So the girl gave birth to a healthy baby girl in a nearby building.

She was later taken to a hospital. But when she was questioned by the cops, she refused to say who the father was. Detectives, however, have a pretty good place to start.

It seems that the girl's father had already done two years in the slam for molesting an older daughter. Through the miracle of the Dutch legal system, which sounds as shitty as ours, he was still given custody of the girl and her brother when he and his wife divorced.

Police say the girl will be sent to foster care once she's released.


All i can say is wow.

Aside from a 12 year old giving birth, the only part I take offense to is the statement at the end...."Through the miracle of the Dutch legal system, which sounds as shitty as ours..." Um, the Dutch legal system is actually FAR ADVANCED and WAY better than our system is. Look at crime rates and statistics. Really. Sorry this happened to this girl but, no need to go blaming an entire successful country for this one thing. IMO. Ok, blast away....

That is just so sad. I hope this time he goes to jail for good. I wish the people who had given him custody of her after he'd already done it to her older sister could be prosecuted too!

I third that, now she gets foster care, that sounds like a better option than going home with your sex offending, pedophile,incestuous father.......I wouldn't be mad at all if someone strung him up by his genitals and beat him with a bag of rocks. The mother must have been shooting up heroin during her testimony to have lost custody to this monster

I am so grateful that I had a father that was not a monster and instead protected me from monsters.

What i don't understand is why they gave the girl and her brother to the father instead of the mother during the divorce even when he had already been accused and put in jail for molesting the girls oldest sister?? Insane. poor girl.

@ Louise, from what Ive seen if its the father abusing themother tends to stick with him. Then at the end of it all say their sorry etc. Sad but true

This is tragic. Imagine being so young, in so much pain and my knowing why and then having your fathers baby (if it was him). The poor girl!

Blimey what a failure that country has been to that poor child. How do you get your head around giving birth to your fathers child! This will haunt her the rest of her life. Where was her mother in all of this. I know for sure I would not of left my daughter there if he had already molested one of my kids. No way. I hope one day she can find peace but there are alot of peolpe involved here that let this happen.

thats horrible I cannot believe they gave him custody what the hell. Thats messed up. Ive got close friends, sisters , who were in this situation but aborted the baby. I couldnt imagine this kid having to give birth. So sad.
