Where the hell have her parents been? Why were they allowing this child to have a boyfriend at 11? Why was this girl not being treated as a child and as such, being allow so much freedom that this could have happened? Was she attending school? If so, her teachers did not see anything out of the ordinary (geez, a 12 year old pregnant, well it has so show somehow, don't you think?)? If she was not in school, then the parents should be charged.
12-year-old gives birth in bathroom
A 12-year-old girl gave birth to a girl in her bathroom Wednesday before a neighbor and the baby's 16-year-old father brought the child to a Medical Center.
Police were called to the hospital about 5:30 p.m. Wednesday about the baby, according to a police news release.
Police said they were investigating the circumstances of the baby being delivered in the bathroom. Police are not releasing the names of the young parents or the address of the residence.
Police said paramedics treated the young mother at the house before she was taken to the hospital where she was later released and described as being in good condition.
"Right now both the baby and the 12-year-old fall under the umbrella of CPS (Child Protective Services)," police said.
The parents have been in a relationship for more than a year.
After the baby was treated Wednesday at the hospital, it was transferred to a hospital where on Thursday the child was listed in fair condition.
Police said they informed the young girl's parents about the baby and the circumstances surrounding the delivery.
Nothing was said about whether the "father" (and I say that very lightly!!) was arrested.
This is just too gall darn ridiculous that people have children but never take on the responsibility of a parent.
That baby should be taken away permanently and put up for adoption. The "mother" is too young to take care of it and her parents - well they could not take care of their 11 year old daughter, what makes anyone think they would do a better job with the baby?
And while the police are at it, I think the parents should be charged with child negligence!!!
