9-Year-Old Child Brides: Headed For OK In Iraq

Child brides are the worst of abuse all rolled into one beastly, immoral package: pedophilia, child abuse, slavery and the dehumanization of women.
And now this disgusting and unholy practice is heading for legal approval in Iraq in the name of religion.
According to Gordon Brown, United Nations Special Envoy on Global Education:
"It is a descent into barbarism. This month’s plan by Iraqi parliamentarians to legalize girl marriage at nine follows the Pakistan Islamic Council’s demand last month that Pakistan abolish all legal restrictions on child marriage, the revelation that Syrian refugee girls are being sold into marriage against their will and the increased pressure in many African countries to ease the restrictions on selling child brides."

Read the rest of the statement here: Drive to end child marriage stalls, but fightback begins.
Right now, my thriller Die By Wire is getting a lot of attention these days because of the plot's similarities to the disappearance of Malaysia Airlines Flight 370.

But the fight against child brides was the original inspiration for writing it. I created the airliner disappearance plot because I understood that most of the world was run by people who don't really care about child brides or because they are afraid to speak up for fear of offending Muslims.

But child brides are an offense to Islam and  primitive practices left-over from humanity's the dark ages.
