Outrage! Teen commits suicide after forced marriage to rapist

16-year-old Amina Filali swallowed rat poison after enduring 5 months of beatings at the hands of her rapist/husband. She had been accosted and raped on the street by a stranger in Morocco at the age of 15. She did not tell her parents for 2 months, according to her father. When she complained and the family reported the rape, the Moroccan legal system suggested marriage as a way of preserving the family "honor". The rapist initially refused to marry her, then relented in order to avoid the 10 to 20 year prison sentence for raping a minor. Internet activists in Morocco are outraged and are trying to get Article 475 of the penal code removed. This is a law that allows kidnappers to avoid prosecution by marrying their victims.

Makes perfect sense if you're a Muzloon.

Moroccan Exceptionalism in action. (snarky reference to Barry's habit of drawing equivalence between American and x "exceptionalism")

Poo poo head is not a polite way to describe these poo poo heads.

Another fine example of liberals showing their support of women AND Children around the world.

Isn't that what hilrod always says? "For the Children".

And we have a mulsim activist in the White House. Good Lord. Honestly.

Better dead than wed.

Or something like that. I can't say that I fault her logic in this situation. WHICH (dare I add) is more common in the Islamic World than people of that faith care to admit.

Extremely tragic... Islam and Barbarism go hand in hand.
