A 9-year-old Mexican girl named Dafne–who is now reported as being 12 or 13 gave birth to a baby by her 44-year-old stepfather in Mexico on January 27. Dafne’s stepfather has been known to sexually abuse his own daughter years prior and reports say that he’s slept in the same bed as Dafne and shared baths with her.
This story is a disturbing one because it started out as a 9-year-old pregnant by her 17-year-old boyfriend, who allegedly fled and hadn’t been seen or heard from around the neighborhood.
Details started emerging that detailed a sordid relationship between Dafne and her stepfather. It’s being reported that Dafne’s stepfather has been arrested and admitted to having sex with Dafne on two occasions, once in April 2012 and again in June. Dafne’s mother had no idea of her young daughter’s pregnancy in until November 2012, which is two months before she gave birth.
Oh, that’s not all. Dafne had to have a C-section and after her baby was born, it’s being reported that the doctors decided to give her an IUD–a contraceptive implant–which will prevent Dafne from having kids if she decides later that she wants them.
Dafne is a victim of rape, but that should not take away her ability to reproduce later in life. This story is such a sad, sad case and these aren’t even all the details. More minor parts of Dafne’s tragic life keep surfacing and while it would make a riveting Lifetime movie, it’s her life and there has to be something, someone, somewhere can do to help.
