Young girl understands a 'life is growing in her womb'

.- A 10-year-old girl in the Mexican city of Chetumal recently explained that “a life is growing in her womb," a fact often ignored by various pro-abortion and feminist groups.

The girl is receiving medical attention at a local clinic, where doctors say the results of psychological tests have been positive.  The recent tests, said Lizbeth Gamboa Song, director of the National System for the Comprehensive Development of the Family, show the girl has a proper understanding of the new life within her and of what to expect during the pregnancy.

Dr. Juan Carlos Navarrete Jaimes of the Merida Clinic performed an ultrasound on the girl and found the mother and child to be in excellent health.  He also provided guidance on the prenatal care she needs during the coming months to ensure the pregnancy proceeds without complications.

Gamboa said that while the girl understands she is carrying a new life within her, “She does not yet fully realize the consequences of what it will mean to raise and care for a child” because of her young age.

“She understands what happens before a pregnancy, she knows her womb will grow, she knows at some point her water will break, and she knows how the baby will be born,” Gamboa said.
