In a one-of-its-kind incident, a 17-year-old girl gave birth to a child after being impregnated by her 15-year-old brother.
This is clearly not the only time this has happened in history.
The conceiving was the result of a maiden act of copulation between the siblings.
That line doesn’t make sense with what is written in the rest of the article. Sounds to me like this had been going on for months.
The shocking incident saw the teenaged girl deliver a baby boy on Thursday morning in Sir GG hospital in Jamnagar. Both, the mother and son's condition is said to be stable.
As the girl, who came to the hospital with her parents, was not only unmarried but also a minor, the hospital authorities thought it prudent to inform the police about the issue.
Sure, depending on the age of consent laws.
According to the police, the indiscretion took place a year ago when the brother-sister duo ended up having sexual intercourse while watching a late night movie at home.
Okay, well, if the child was just born, then the child was not conceived a full year ago. Or am I forgetting some new revelation in biology or prenatal care? Perhaps the cosanguinamorous relationship began a full a year ago?
Confirming the development, Subhash Trivedi, superintendent of Jamnagar police, informed DNA that, "the act occurred between the 17-year-old girl and her younger brother. However, we cannot take any legal action as consensual sex, by a girl above 16 years of age, is not a crime."
Why then, did the hospital contact the authorities?
The police have lodged a formal entry using information provided by the hospital authorities.
"We have taken the statement of the girl. She said she and her younger brother committed incest while watching a movie at home," said GA Sarvaiya, police inspector of A division police station.
Sounds like a date.
Meanwhile, Dr Nilesh Gadhvi, head of the gynaecology department of the hospital told DNA that, "the girl was brought to the hospital late night on Wednesday. The attending doctors found that she was eight months pregnant. The parents were unaware as the girl had not disclosed anything about the pregnancy. She has no complaint against anyone.
I don’t know what the new mother’s life is like. Some her age are focused on getting married and having children, but I would tell Americans her age they should be focusing on education, career, and learning themselves in their youth before marrying and starting a family. If she and her brother are in love, and ready to raise this child together, they should be allowed to marry, if that’s what they want. Perhaps they could live with their parents for a while?
