A single mother of Micoud was given the shock of her life, when she took her ill 11-year-old daughter to the doctor on Monday, and was told that the child is five months pregnant.

According to a relative, the child complained of not feeling well and was taken to the hospital. It was then that an ultrasound revealed that she was with child.

The source told St Lucia News Online (SNO) that the child comes from a broken home, which lacks parental supervision, citing that this might have been the reason for the issue at hand.

“The mother is hardly ever around, if ever. She has recently gotten a job and is away a lot. The child is usually left in the care of her 16-year-old sister.”

    Wow St Lucia give you all something to talk about,that’s Dominicans type type type talk talk talk.

  3. April 15, 2016

    Why are Dominicans so dense? Why do we act like we cannot read? The article says that the suspected father is a boy in Grade 6!!! Little boys in Grade 6 are about 12 to 13 years of age. Some people are saying the boy is 17 years old when the article is actually quoting the boy saying that he also had relations with the 17 year old sister as well. The little boy denies being the father of the child saying that the little 11 years old girl is promiscuous, indicating that he was NOT the only person who had sexual relations with the girl. My people read and comprehend!!! Shoot man!

    On reading this story I felt sick & faint!! I have not read the other comments because I’m grief stricken. This poor child has been robbed of her childhood and innocence!! Her body might never recover from this trauma! Did her mother not monitor her monthly? To be 5 months pregnant with your parents not noticing smacks of some form of neglect (not that I wish to judge). The perpetrator MUST be caught & dealt with harshly !!!

    It is not shocking to me. Today, they are not innocent as some of us were when we were their age. I have heard that eight and nine-year old become pregnant.
    I reside in a city that some children have children. I see some of them with babies and their prams.
    Once in public, I overheard one stated she wants to have a baby. Her friends have babies. She thought babies are cute and so she wanted to have one. I lectured her and told her to concentrate on her schooling. I wonder whatever became of her.
    Some children mature faster than others (if you know what I mean). Parents must not allow their children to run around without supervision. Much more could be stated about that.
    The 17 year-old said he is not the father. It is simple. Later a DNA test will be taken. If he is the father, he will not be able to deny it. If he is, they are both minors and both will need counseling. We must leave this up to the St. Lucian authorities.

    • April 15, 2016

      The Bible does not say children shall make children. This NOT prophecy. Incorrect and foolish statements like this cause confusion, and do more harm than good.

      Parents should teach their children the code God has given us for sexual behavior as it is found in the New Testament. Teachers, nurses, and counselors in the schools should reinforce this at very opportunity in health classes, and physical education classes, social studies classes, etc.

      God’s moral code includes such scriptures as Romans 1:26,27, and 1 Corinthians 6:9,10,18-20. It forbids fornication which is any form of illicit sex. It is all sex outside of a Biblical one man with one woman marriage. It includes premarital sex, extra marital sex, pedophilia, incest, homosexuality, and bestiality.

      God’s moral code should also be taught and preached in the churches, from the pulpits, in the Sunday Schools, and in youth services.

      Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. Evangelist.

    This sad little girl must be so tramatized by this rape and neglect. The pedophile who raped her should be given a hash punishment plus castration. Her parents who neglected her should also be charge.
    She is at risk of death from the birth. I hope the medical community intervene before it\’s too late .

      Some believe a crime this serious deserves the death penalty if it was committed by an adult.

      Personally, I believe the death penalty should at least be on the table. It should be an option at the discretion of the judge.

      If the judge does not hand down the maximum sentence of time behind bars he (she) is (in my opinion)
      inviting vigilante justice and should be held responsible.

    Children need a mother and father in the home to teach them right from wrong, and guide their steps. Both are responsible to protect and shelter the children. This is why a “broken home” or a “single parent” family is a difficult situation in which to raise a child or children.

    It can be done but the parent will face challenges. Members of the extended family should help out when they are able. It is a God-sent if grandma lives nearby, and mum has sisters who love children and are willing to lend a hand.

    We recommend parents regularly attend a family oriented evangelical church where the Holy Scriptures are revered and taught, a church that has a strong Sunday School and youth ministry. Take (do not send) the kids! Make sure your children are in the Sunday school on a regular basis. Find the right church and what your kids learn in Sunday School can keep them out of a lot of trouble.

    Sincerely, Rev. Donald Hill. Evangelist. (Pastoral Counselor Certificate)

      The Catholic Church has Holy Bible studies. Children receive their fair share according to what their little minds can absorb.
      If parents are Catholics, they have recourse to the Priest and to receive counseling. Some people do not seek it. They prefer living their life in whatever manner. Even though they are spoken to, they refuse to listen. Will you whip and force them?
      It is obvious the mother was not church-going. She was a bad example and an irresponsible one. She did not take an interest in her children. She was too busy doing whatever else. How often she was at home, slept at home, prepared meals, even breakfast for her daughters? What type of nurturing she gave them?
      Prior to your charade of finding the right church, you will have to speak to the mother to know how negligent she was in this matter.
      The only Right Church is the only one which Our Lord Jesus Christ established 2,000 years ago, namely, The One Holy Catholic and Apostolic Church.

      Well yes when God instituted the family, it was always intended to be Dad, Mum, and the kids.That was His original plan but because of sin, we have many consequences. and unfortunately, Single parents home is one of them.
      I am a Christian and a single mom and now Grandma. Wife abandoned on her youth who raised up three beautiful daughters all by myself and the guidance of my heavenly Father and I am extremely proud to say that they turned out pretty well. With all due respect to you Reverend, it is wrong and unfair to blame this un fortunate circumstance on Single- parenting .

      I do believe people must be given a second chance. The mother will obviously be counseled. She may not have known better. There are many mothers as her, no exception in Dominica and elsewhere in the world.
      Consider the father. I wonder if the mother knows who fathered her children? Do her children know their father? It is stated that her 16 year-old took care of her.
      It was not stated if the mother has sons.
      How many fathers for her two children? If only one father for both daughters, do they know him?
      You know about dead-beat dads.
      So many questions to be asked and answered. The Social Service authority in St. Lucia will quiz her and offer her advice.

    If alleged high ranking men in Dominica could have the heart and courage to behave inappropriately with a 15 year old girl, do I find it a big matter for most likely a bear foot man in SLU who probably doesn’t have a wife or girlfriend to turn to?

    If a situation like this happened in Dominica I would not be surprised at all to hear the name of some policy makers being the dad. But then again we would not hear that because they would find a way to send her to China or a far country, under the name of medical emergency that requires surgery that cannot be performed here.

    Alas, the caribbean really have a pedofile problem that needs addressing ASAP. We are destroying the future generation one at a time. Yet when accused people are asked to step down from high positions in the public interest some have the nerve to castigate those asking them to do so. God help us all if we continue to be hypocrites and parasites while our children are destroyed. I call for castration to be one form one punishment for these crimes.

      @Shameless – Pedophilia is wrong. But hear dis – there are currently arguments being put forward in Europe that pedophilia ought not be viewed as an abnormality but rather as a normal sexual orientation (just like how the delusional and perverts out there have tried to justify homosexuality).

      It’s all on the internet for one to read. And some of these arguments being put forward to justify pedophilia are coming from psychologists and other so-called educated persons eh.

      Just wait for the pro-pedophilia groups to get going. One of their first orders of business might be to get the age of consent lowered. In some countries, the age of consent is 12-14(it varies across countries).

      As someone once said – The only difference between pedophilia and homosexuality is just a matter of time.

      • April 17, 2016

        I have seen several different independent studies that show homosexuals are three times as likely to molest children as heterosexuals.

        Much of the energy to have the age of consent lowered or abolished is coming from homosexual organizations. A large homosexual organization in the USA published a special edition of their official magazine devoted to promoting man-boy sex. The motto of this organization at that time was “Sex by Eight or it is too Late.” Since then they may have been forced to drop that motto.

        Some mental health professionals (psychologists and psychiatrists) have asked that pedophilia be legally declared “an orientation”. This would supposedly recognize that they were “born that way” and people would not be allowed to “discriminate” against them. Since homosexuals have already gained this legal ground in some places it is now easier for pedophiles to campaign for the same recognition.

      You state pedophile. How about educating or informing the boys and girls not to indulge in this. They are not praying enough and attending church and reading relevant information.
      Recall those days when most mothers were at home and disciplined their children? They monitored their children’s activities, daughters and sons. They were not allowed to go out at nights. Today mothers work and are not home to be with their children when they return from school.
      I can tell you I had such parents. My father was the breadwinner. My mother never worked. She knew when we should be home after school and games. If we were allowed to go to the movies – matinee with our friends – she knew when the movie was over and what time we should have been home. If we were a few minutes late she would admonish us. Mind you, we were with our friends, taking a stroll after the movie or were at their home. :)
      Those were the innocent days but not for every child. It is worst today.

      It does not say anything about the age of the perpetrator except that should he be under the age of sixteen ( 16) the Court may order him to be whipped instead, as described by the Juvenile Offences Punishment Act.

      When you read matters and on DNO, keep them in mind. It pays to have a good memory. Children are not as innocent as those who are adults believe. Remember the eight year-old that the aged man had sexual relations with? Do you recall that she told her brothers, “Me and uncle . . . was sexing? She knows about that. It was as if there was nothing to it and acceptable for an eight-year old. Some of them are smarter than you think.

      What we must do is to pray for them. We must pray for the entire world, no exception our country and wherever we reside. This is what God wants of us.
      A few years ago I attended a Catholic prayerful gathering. A visionary from former Croatia visited Toronto. He receives messages from Our Lady, The Mother of God. After he received the messages, he told us what She stated. One of the messages I vividly remember, as he related to the gathering: “The children of today are facing difficult times.”
      God knows what is happening to His children on earth, the little children. It must make Our Lord Jesus Christ cry. We must tell that to the world.
      Children are the future adults. Note the attitude of some adults be it on this Website in their comments to others. Their comments tell much about them. I need not elaborate further.
      This should tell us to pray for them. Some of them did not, others do not have proper parents and guidance.

    Best outcome find out who is responsible .If the male who is responsible is a minor ,his family is responsible,if the male is an adult ,he is responsible by law and should be put under arrest as soon as possible,while this child should be taken away from her family and be placed under protective care because many people in st Lucia have been killed to prevent them from being the main witness in a criminal case.I do feel sorry for that child because if she comes from a broken family now her life can be a wreck due to an early pregnancy..I can only wish the best for this child and hope in the near future she will overcome her troubles ..she isn’t the first very young child in this case ,there have been others who were even younger ;but take this as a lesson,having children at a very young age is not good for any child nor the families of both parties that are involved..

      The male is a 17 year old and he claims that he is not the father of the unborn child, he claims that the girl was sexually active with other guys. The police are looking for him and his family sent him to live in another community. The mother of the girl had just found herself a new job leaving her in the care of her 16 year old sister.

        BEB: you appear to be fully informed, you are even more detailed than what is written in the article. Whereas it seems that a teen age is the father, I doubt there is much one can argue.

        However, such is likely to happen in the Caribbean where sex education is taboo! When I was a child I was told that my pines is my puppy. Little girls were told they have a nunuosh, of some other stupid name beside a vagina.

        When a child used the “F” word they were wiped, when parents refuse to discus the anatomy of the human body with their children, what we are reading here is likely to happen even more often.

        When my oldest daughter was around this child in question age, I sat her down along with her older brothers, and sister about four years old, and gave them some sex education, my former wife thought they should learn that else where, nevertheless, I never had any of my children involving in premature sexual activities!
