Isis is believed to have ordered the closure of all women’s clinics supervised by male doctors in its Syrian heartlands in its latest assault on the rights of women.
A culture of rape, forced marriages for child brides, the persecution of doctors and the exclusive use of medicines for militants have resulted in a crisis for women’s health under Isis’s brutal regime.
According to activists, Isis has drastically restricted the work of male gynecologists in accordance with its leaders’ belief that men and women should be kept apart at all costs.
I read this and all I could think was how jealous the Republicans are that they don't have this kind of power.
Because trust me, if they had this power, they would use this power.
The really terrible thing for the girls in Syria is that many of them are being forced into unions with ISIS fighters, often by their own fathers, and come to these clinics after suffering miscarriages, with STD's, or after suffering horrible abuse and rape at the hands of their new "husbands."
Some of these girls are as young as nine or ten, and without these clinics many of them will die.
And you might want to believe that even Christian conservatives would be horrified at such treatment, but don't forget that no small number of them still see women as the property of men, and at least one website even supported the idea of marital rape.
