JALISCO, MEXICO — A nine year-old girl in Mexico not only gave birth allegedly by her stepfather, but medics are accused of sterilizing her without her consent. The President of the Commission for Human Rights in the state of Jalisco presented a report openly questioning hospital staff who turned the girl back over to her family despite claims she was abused by her step-father. The probe is also investigating an official complaint by the girls' mother that the nine year-old was sterilized without the mother's consent. Hospital officials deny that charge.
