10-Year-Old Gives Birth, Causing Alarm
By Carolyn Salazar & Jessica Ryen Doyle

Nov. 4: Authorities are questioning the health A 10-year-old girl who gave birth in Spain last week.
Authorities are examining the health a 10-year-old girl who gave birth in Spain last week.
Social workers inspected the home of the girl, who is Romanian, to determine whether her baby is properly cared for, officials said. They would not say what they found, but the town’s mayor called the home “modest.”
The case has shocked Spaniards and created an international sensation – news of the birth went viral on the Internet. But medical professionals have expressed concerns over the young mother’s health, especially since it’s unclear whether she received any medical attention the last few months of her pregnancy.
“A very comprehensive approach to her care needs to be instituted early in her pregnancy,” said Dr. Manny Alvarez, a gynecologist who is managing editor of foxnewshealth.com.
The girl’s age places her at significant risk, he said. Officials say she had not seen a doctor before showing up at a hospital last week.
“This is a very high-risk pregnancy because the anatomy of a 10-year-old is not mature,” Alvarez said. “They are at higher risk of hypertension and pelvic trauma and tend to end up having caesarean deliveries because their vaginal anatomy is so immature.”
Leading daily El Pais and other Spanish news media said prosecutors had announced they would investigate whether the parents might be guilty of any negligence if the 10-year-old child was not registered for school or had not received sufficient pre-natal care.
The girl’s mother told reporters earlier this week that she’s delighted to have a new granddaughter and doesn’t understand the fuss the birth has caused. She said the baby’s father is a 13-year-old boy who is still in Romania.
She also said since they are Romanian Gypsies, or Roma, it is their custom to marry very young. Arranged “marriages” for girls reaching puberty are relatively common among Roma, who make up about 1.5 million of Romania’s 22 million people. Those marriages are not recognized by the state, which requires girls to be 16 and have parental consent before they can marry.
Dr. Abdulla Al-Khan, a leading high-risk obstetrician, said this case was not about teen pregnancy, it’s about a pre-teen whose body is not yet built to carry a child.
“Her chest is not extensively developed for breast tissue, her bones aren’t quite fused, and once you expose a child this young to high amounts of progesterone and especially estrogen, there is (a possibility) that it could halt her growth,” Al-khan said.
There are also psychological issues associated with pre-teen pregnancy because a 10-year-old cannot be mentally ready to give birth, Al-Khan said.
“This is heart-wrenching because you have a kid whose mental capacities can’t possibly wrap themselves around what it means to be a mother,” agreed Dr. Keith Ablow, a psychiatrist and Fox News contributor. “There are so many psychological minefields in store for her. Feelings of guilt, feelings of wanting to nurture another human being, and yet this is all very, very complex and intense when she looks to her own family to essentially support, and if you will, father her child.”
The youngest documented case of a child pregnancy was in 1939 in Lima, Peru, Al-Khan said. Lina Medina was six years old when she became pregnant and gave birth to a baby.

Celebrating BHM “Black History Month” for February 1, 2012 on Heavyweight boxing champ and legend Muhammad Ali.
According to Biography Fact 1 & 2: As a child Muhammad Ali was refused an autograph by his idol, boxer Sugar Ray Robinson. When Ali became a prize-fighter, he vowed never to deny an autograph request, which he has honored to this day.

According to Leslie Carter Us Weekly, Leslie Carter the 25-year old sister of Aaron and Nick Carter is dead.
Leslie was a singer, wife and mother to a baby girl Alyssa, 10 months. Carter passed away of unknown causes in upstate New York.
“The family legitimately doesn’t know what happened,” a source close to the Carter family tells Us Weekly. “They’re still trying to find out.”
Singer Aaron, 24, is “completely blindsided” by the news. Leslie, whose single “Like Wow!” was featured on the Shrek soundtrack in 2001, had four siblings and married Alyssa’s dad, Mike, in 2008
“She loved her family, she loved her baby,” the source adds of Leslie, whose 1999 debut album was never released. “She was happy stepping away from the show business and just living happily with her family in Canada.”
UPDATE: CAUSE OF DEATH ACCORDING TO POLICE:
An incident report obtained by CNN Thursday from the Chautauqua County Sheriff’s Office indicates that Leslie Carter, the deceased sister of singers Nick and Aaron Carter, suffered an apparent overdose and was taking medication for depression.
Carter, an aspiring singer, died at the age of 25, in New York. The incident report notes that three prescription drugs were found near Carter: Olanzapine, used to treat the symptoms of schizophrenia and bipolar disorder; Cyclobenzaprine, a muscle relaxant; and Alprazolam, used to treat anxiety or panic disorders, also known as Xanax.
Carter’s step-mother, Ginger, and father, Robert, told police that the 25-year-old mom had a “long history of mental illness and was on medication for her depression.”
An autopsy has been conducted, but an official cause of death can’t be determined until toxicology results come back in four to six weeks.
According to the report, Carter was at home with her step-mother Ginger on Tuesday, and Ginger reported to police that while Carter had seemed OK that morning, at times she seemed depressed, “just by the way she was talking.”
Carter asked Ginger to care for her 10-month-old daughter that day because she wasn’t “feeling great.” At one point, Ginger told police that she realized Carter had been in the bathroom for some time, and when she went to check on her, saw that Carter had fallen into the shower.
After helping her step-daughter out of the bathroom and into her bed, Ginger said she continued to care for Carter’s daughter while periodically checking on Carter. Ginger said she didn’t wake up when she would sit on the bed, or sit the baby on the bed, but still had color to her skin and was breathing, and appeared to be sleeping.
It wasn’t until Carter’s father Robert came home that afternoon that Carter was found to be unresponsive and not breathing. Her father tried to perform CPR, but Carter was taken to the hospital and pronounced dead within the hour.

Soul Train host and creator Don Cornelius was found shot dead in his Los Angeles home on Wednesday February 1, 2012 from an apparent suicide according to the Los Angeles Coroner office and the L.A.P.D.
Someone called the police department at Cornelius home in Sherman Oaks, California on Mulholland Drive a little bit before 4:00 am Wednesday morning and it was reported gun shots were fired. When the police arrived at the home, they entered the home when someone let them in and found Cornelius lifeless on the floor which appeared to be gun shot to the head that seemed to be self-inflicted according to Ed Winter, the Los Angles County assistant chief.
Cornelius was pronounced dead at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center at 4:56 a.m.
Cornelius was 75.
RIP Don Thanks For The Hippest Trips In America – Love, Peace & Soul.
BET and Centric is honoring Cornelius’ legacy by having a full TV program line-up.
Singer Hebe Tien from the girl group S.H.E, recently commented on about herself being the last one to marry since her band mates Selina Jen and the newly engaged Ella Chen, the message she left, “I’ve been receiving messages like “you’re the only one left”, “when is your turn” to remind me that I’m the only unmarried one.”
Selina gave some encouraging words for Hebe,”Don’t worry, Cupid should be reading this. With so many well wishes, you’ll find someone soon.”
Even Hebe’s fans were being matchmakers by writing Hebe is “marriage material”. The unmarried singer responded to her fans, “They’re so helpful, but I’m just letting nature takes its course now,” she said, adding that her fans are more enthusiastic about her marriage than she is.
In a previous blog article, singer JJ Lin who has out his latest album”Lost N Found” has a major crush on Hebe, Lin said that Hebe was his ideal type but not sure if he’s her type.
Maybe, these twp could arrange a date in the future; however, it’s most important to concertrate on her music career and let a relationship that invovles marriage slowly come into her life. There’s no need to rush.
