Just In Time For International Women's Day - Iraqi Cabinet Approves Draft Bill Legalizing Marriage Of 9 Year Old's
BAGHDAD (Reuters) - About two dozen Iraqi women demonstrated on Saturday in Baghdad against a draft law approved by the Iraqi cabinet that would permit the marriage of nine-year-old girls and automatically give child custody to fathers.
The group's protest was on International Women's Day and a week after the cabinet voted for the legislation, based on Shi'ite Islamic jurisprudence, allowing clergy to preside over marriages, divorces and inheritances. The draft now goes to parliament.
"On this day of women, women of Iraq are in mourning," the protesters shouted.
Do know that thanks to our government's ludicrous immigration policy pedophile Muslim preachers teach this vile evil in Canada.
