In a tragic update of the girl, 9, who gave birth to a baby in Mexico, doctors have sterilized the young mother so that she will never have kids again — despite her family’s wishes. So sad.

The 9-year-old girl known as “Dafne” who gave birth to a premature baby in Mexico will reportedly never have any more kids — doctors sterilized the poor girl in a Guadalajara hospital, even though her mom contested the procedure.

After Dafne’s shocking delivery on Jan. 27, doctors reportedly performed the sterilization, according to the Daily Mail, without permission from Dafne’s family. The Zoquipan Hospital in Guadalajara is now under investigation by the local human rights commission after the girl’s mother reported the horrific incident.

Paternity Of Newborn Baby Under Investigation

The biological father’s identity is also under investigation. Authorities originally believed she had gotten pregnant by her boyfriend, who is between 15 and 17 years old, and Dafne’s mother even accused him of rape. He is still on the run, and has not been found by police.

But now a DNA test is reportedly being carried out to determine the paternity of the newborn after shocking claims her stepfather may have abused her.

Dafne’s stepdad allegedly abused his own biological daughter, and also reportedly beat and shared a bed with the 9-year-old young mother, family members and neighbors revealed to the Daily Mail.

“What he has done has shamed our family. I don’t know why the girl’s mother lets him carry on the way he has,” a relative of the stepdad told the Daily Mail. “They’re both liars and I think it’s terrible what has happened. Dafne is a child. She’s just a child. The girl’s mother is in love with him so she protects him, and this is what happens.”

Such a tragedy. What do YOU think of the sad situation HollyMoms? Let us know in the comments below.
