INFINITE HORROR IN TREATING A CHILD

by michael on September 13, 2013

Moments ago I read my Facebook page. I have tried to follow the events in Syria and the diplomacy, if one can use such a high-sounding word, regarding events in Syria. I shall keep my thoughts for myself on those issues. I did see on my Facebook page an entry or posting, whatever the proper word is, by Dennis Prager which referenced and linked to an article and link that Prager saw on the Facebook page of David Horowtiz’s Freedom Center. https://www.facebook.com/horowitzfreedomcenter?hc_location=stream

The topic of the article and link is the child brides in Yemen and, specifically, how an eight-year-old girl died on her “wedding.”

The soul of any decent person cries in anguish as to what some cultures do to children.

The world is now overwhelmed in evil; evil action and evil cowardice.

8 Year-Old Yemeni Child Bride Dies of Internal Injuries

September 10, 2013 In the News

An 8 year-old Yemeni child bride, a mere girl, recently died on her wedding night from internal hemorrhaging. She was married to a man five times her age. As disgusting as the tradition of marrying off children to much older men is, it is common practice in Yemen. More than a quarter of the female population are married before the age of 15.

Year-Old Yemeni Child Bride Dies of Internal Injuries

September 10, 2013 In the News

An 8 year-old Yemeni child bride, a mere girl, recently died on her wedding night from internal hemorrhaging. She was married to a man five times her age. As disgusting as the tradition of marrying off children to much older men is, it is common practice in Yemen. More than a quarter of the female population are married before the age of 15.

In 2010, a 12 year-old girl passed away after struggling for three days in labor, attempting to give birth to a baby. Countless other children have been subjected to similar atrocities.

At only 8 years-old, one child bride in Yemen sustained internal injuries so severe, she died.

                       

Marrying young daughters to much older men is a common practice in Yemen.

More than a quarter or Yemen’s female population marry before the age of 15.

These atrocities against young girls have outraged groups all over the world who are working to stop this barbaric tradition.


Groups all over the world are working to snuff out this archaic and disgusting practice, but its proving difficult. The impoverished country is gripped by the practice of selling off children to be married; poor families find themselves unable to say no to “bride-prices” that can be hundreds of dollars for their daughters.
