Health Experts Shocked As 11-year-old Girl To Be UK's Youngest Mother

The case of an 11-year-old girl who is all set to don the mantle of becoming the youngest mother in UK has shocked and frustrated health experts who maintain// that it is her age to play with dolls and not rear babies.

The Scottish Conservative party spokeswoman said that the incident was shocking, "I hope that this incident will draw attention to failings that have allowed such a young girl to go on a night out, get drunk, get pregnant, yet seemingly be ignorant about the risks and
