Yemen: 13 Year-old Child Bride Dies After Intercourse

On March 22nd, I posted an article entitled “Yemen: Women Take a Stand for Child Marriages”. I wonder if they are happy now?

Marrying a girl even younger than this is legal under Islam.

Volume 7, Book 62, Number 88:
Narrated ‘Ursa:

The Prophet wrote the (marriage contract) with ‘Aisha while she was six years old and consummated his marriage with her while she was nine years old and she remained with him for nine years (i.e. till his death).

Islam should of been left in the 6th century, it belongs.

Hat tip to Richard.

Yemeni child bride, 13, dies of sex injuries
Death comes amid ongoing debate on whether to set a minimum age for brides in Yemen, where human rights groups say one in every three girls is married before the age of 18

A 13-year-old Yemeni girl died three days after marrying a man twice her age, due to internal bleeding following intercourse, a Yemeni human rights group and UNICEF said.

The girl’s death comes amid ongoing debate on whether to set a minimum age for brides in Yemen, where human rights groups say one in every three girls is married before the age of 18.

Elham Mahdi Shoi died in the west of the Arab state earlier this month, said Sisters Arab Forum (SAF).

Sigrid Kaag, regional director for UNICEF, said in a statement that the United Nations child agency was “dismayed by the death of yet another child bride in Yemen“.

“Elham is a martyr of abuse of children’s lives in Yemen and a clear example of what is justified by the lack of limits on the age of marriage,” SAF said in a statement.

The case of a nine-year-old Yemeni child bride, Nujood Ali, was thrust into the spotlight after it was reported by a Yemeni newspaper and a French journalist wrote her memoir, which was published in March.

In the harrowing memoir, Nujood tells how at age 9 she was forced to marry a man three times her age, raped and beaten, then made Yemeni history by getting a divorce two years ago.

As suggested in the memoir, child brides in Yemen are fuelled by a combination of a lack of women’s rights, economic hardships and a culture that deplores bringing families shame, making it difficult to speak out.

    Now Western Leftists will come out and say that it's not wrong, since it was consensual and since they defend Roman Polanski too.

    Just like NAMBLA is not wrong. When there is no level of right and wrong, life is easier. As you do not have to take a stand for anything. It is a weaklings cop out.

    Sexual repression only emphasises sexuality. It's no wonder that muz are such sexual deviants because of their restrictive society. Plus they've been inculcated with the ideas that the perversions of mohamad, the worthless piece of human filth that is their prophet, are normal. It's created a cult of morally depraved, subhuman filth masquerading as humans.

    No, I don't think that's a crime in Soddy Barbaria. Anyway, they'd need 4 witnesses!

    I'd go with the brainwashing but I also have to note that arselifting bints have absolutely no say in who they marry etc. Its all decided by the male who controls them (i.e. owns them). I do wonder about orphaned females since Mahound did away with adoptions.

    All in all, however, it must be extremely unpleasant to be female and an arselifter.

      That they don’t, that much is obvious. But it makes you wonder why these Yemeni women would protest so vehemently when the age of marriage would be raised. So yes, it must be brainwashing…

    A-M, Mohammed was a trendsetter and if he wanted to save children from sexabuse he could easily set new rules. If they are so poor, why cant they raise animals and sell them or eat them, rather than make babygirls and then sell them for marriage? I can´t understand it at all.

    The comment from March 22nd says Mo had to marry Aisha, she was given to him, but why have sex then? You have your own choise or was he so sensitive to what other men said to him, so he couldn´t stand against the poor childs sexy body. Excuse my expression!

    Even if you call it pedophilia or marriage it´s still the same shit. Even in modern queerfeminism pedophilia is a possible sexuality, but you have to groom the child and make the sexual acts playful and suitable for the kid given its age.

    It´s still pedophilia! Or more correct, power and control over children with sexual acts.

      Aisha wasn't so much given to Mahound as Mahound told her father that he wanted her for his wife. Its discussed in the hadiths. Her farther was supposedly taken aback. The hadiths also mention that all her hair fell out. Apart from chemotherapy, what would cause that to happen?

      Mahound also went after her around the time his first wife died.

    The Koran is a bunch of double talk, used to justify Mohammad's actions.

    Islam the most confusing ideology I have ever had the pleasure of reading. But one thing is certain you say one thing about that religion and it's members want your head off. They seem to have absolutely no tolerance.

  9. April 18, 2010 at 10:33 pm

    Yet they claim that Islam is tolerant. It is one lie, after another.

    Oh, it’s that peaceful and loving religion again! Eh…not to mention: Pedophiles. People who believe Qur’an deserves their deadly END.
