The youngest mother on record, Lina Medina, was only 5 years, seven months and 17 days old when she gave birth to a son weighing 6 pounds. This is by far one of the most disturbing facts that we have encountered, and I was initially skeptical. But it turns out that this was a true event. A disturbing one I’ll admit, even more disturbing than this one, but it did happen nonetheless. So how did this even happen to a child that had hardly even graduated preschool? Even the biology of it is hard to fathom.
In 1939, the youngest mother on record, Lina Medina, gave birth to a baby boy via cesarean section. As we have said, 5 years old doesn’t seem at all possible, and as if it’s a fabricated story. However, all of the facts, including published papers by the physician and the woman herself, now aged in her 80’s, all point to a true story, which makes me a little uncomfortable. Why? Because for this to have happened points to the high likelihood that she was molested. There’s really no other possibility. At only 5 years of age, 4 when she fell pregnant, a young child would not have any comprehension of the physical and psychological connection of sex. In short, she was raped. Simple as that. But how is it possible that she became pregnant? Most females don’t reach sexual maturity, and thus the ability to bear children until they are about 12 years of age. Well fate had a cruel twist with this young girl.
In a report by Dr. Edmundo Escomel it is stated that she had her first period at only 8 months of age. While the exact date is contentious, some saying 2.5 years and others stating 3 years, all seem to agree that by the time she was three she was having a regular monthly period. The fact that this was happening shows that at least her own reproductive system believed that she was ready to begin having sex. But that doesn’t make it right.| | | Next → |
