Wow! this is really shocking. How could a 5-year-old girl give birth to a child? I am even shocked when I hear news like 12 year olds getting pregnant but this is just too much. I can't bear thinking about it. This really like disturbed me.

Unbelieveable. While I have no doubt that claim may or may not be true, its another thing to shake my head at. A five-year-old giving birth? That poor girl. Shes barely grown herself and still has a lot of growwing to do. I didn't think a woman could concive that early. Quite frankly I don't really believe it. And just because its posted on waki doesn't make it true. Anyone can post just about anything on there. Doesn't make it true.

wow. i didn't believe it at first just looking at your title but reading it at wiki makes me believe. am on medicine thats why my first reaction was how could it be, the fact thay she is not yet in puberty. her menarche is so early that makes her able to conceive a child. whew!! she's so young then.

at first i did not believe that too, while my niece was telling the story so i made a research myself and there it was all true and detailed. yes her menarche is early but that does not mean that a person can get her pregnant, that was the annoying part to get a five year old girl pregnant. thanks a lot for the response

being pregnant and giving birth is just a play or a game for a five year old girl but not for poor lina. she was still a baby and going to a stage were grown up women felt depressed and mixed up emotions. it is sad but truly very brave. thanks a lot for the response

I never knew this until I read your post. Lina Medina, seven and a half months into pregnancy.Oh my God..Unbelievable!! How could it be??? Sometimes I think what's gonna be happen in future and with this lil' girl. How cruel his father would be who did this bad crime and it's nice to hear that now Medina's father was arrested on suspicion of rpe and incst, but was later released due to lack of evidence..this is so bad again.

thanks a lot se7enthbird, this is really unbelievable. But after reading the articles make me believe..wow lina is such a strong girl, she must have suffered a lot cos of her small body and at a very young age, who's the heartless man done it to her

whew!how could someone on his right mind would do that on a 5 year old girl? i am already 29 and currently pregnant with my second child and still it is not easy to go through the hardships of pregnancy, how much more to a 5 year old girl who doesn't even given the chance to enjoy her childhood.

Hi Se7enth I was really shocked to read about the young mother.....At age 5 the girl is not physically or mentally mature to go through the trauma of pregnancy......And if her father is suspected to have raped his daughter,its essential that he is punished befittingly.....
