    I'm not an OB nurse by any means but this can't be too common, right? I remember there being a pregnant girl in my 8th grade class but nothing else before high school.

    I hope they find out the full story here. Poor thing.

    Sad. I saw this earlier and could only think how their entire family is messed up for the rest of their lives. Poor thing!

    My definition of a nightmare just changed as soon as I read this!

    This in my eyes is tragic!my heart hurts for the child and family-- there no way this is not rape or sexual abuse.

    The girl although only 8 she looks much older and probably had her menses. But Lord helps us how in the world this keeps happening?

    *Very* sad to say this but odds are this is *not* an isolated incident and happens probably more often than we know. This sad and rather depressing story of child abuse, for that is what it is, comes to us only because of the powers of Internet and news media. Think about all the poor young girls in parts of Africa, Middle East, India and elsewhere that are sold/married off or otherwise handed over to an "older" man for the price of a cow or some such.

    This is common in our country as well...I recall seeing 2 cases like this...an 11 year old and a 10 year old...one was in a group home, other was impregnated by mom's boyfriend. It happens more than we think

    Now that last bit always chaffs my behind!

    In this day and age there are still mothers of young females that don't pay attention and or for other reasons ignore what is going on in they own homes.

    The sad and horrible story of "Ceily" from the book and film "Colour Purple" rightfully called out something that had been going on then, before and still today. However then as now people don't like dirty linen aired in public so better to sweep things under the carpet and or blame the child.

    Fast forward to today and the film "Precious" told pretty much the same story with pretty much the same reactions.

    Yup. Even with awareness, it seems as if its still a pushback to sweep it underneath the rug...

    They are looking for the guy in Mexico...it's going to be really unfortunate if vigilantes catch up with him..
