Schoolgirl,12, gives birth on school trip

A Dutch schoolgirl has been put into foster care after giving birth on a school trip.…


Posted By Yahoo Lifestyle, Wednesday, 30 March 2011 17:02 BST
A 12-year-old Dutch schoolgirl who gave birth during a school trip has been placed into foster care.
The unnamed girl from Groningen was out with classmates last Tuesday when she felt violent stomach pains. An alarmed teacher called an ambulance and when emergency services arrived they realised she was about to give birth.
Neither the girl nor her family realised she was pregnant, and she showed no signs of carrying a baby.
She has refused to name the father.
Dutch social services told news agency ANP the girl “may be in an unsafe environment” at home and have asked police to begin a formal investigation.
They said: “It is not clear if the adults in this story have played a role. That is why we have asked the police to look into the adults.”
Dutch paper the Telegraaf reports that the girl's father has a conviction for abusing an older sister.
The schoolgirl, along with her baby, are said to be “doing well” in hospital.

This was in the article about the man naming his daughter Facebook:

"A young Egyptian man has decided to call his first-born daughter Facebook in a tribute to the social media site’s role in his country’s political revolution.

... family and friends have reportedly gathered around the newborn to express their continuing support for the revolution that started on Facebook.

... Following the President’s resignation on 11 February, graffiti artists scribed 'Thank you Facebook' on walls across Cairo."

This proves what I said in my thread https://www.takethislife.com/news/ano...-canada-58858/. To Egyptians in the revolution, I am a worse person than this man, because I'm incapable of using Facebook.

The articles about the 12-year old mother and 23-year old grandmother are pretty sad.
