Religiously Conservative Parents kill their Teenage Daughter for Talking to a Boy

Week in Review

A horrible murder of a 15-year old Kashmir girl by her own parents illustrates where there is a war on women.  And it isn’t in the United States (see Parents kill teenage daughter in acid attack in Kashmir by AFP posted on The Telegraph).

A mother and father in Pakistan-administered Kashmir killed their 15-year-old daughter by dousing her with acid after seeing her talking to a young man, police say.

Local police officer Tahir Ayub told AFP the father, Mohammad Zafar, was already suspicions about his daughter Anvu Sha and became enraged when he saw her with a boy outside their home on Monday.

“Zafar beat her up and then poured acid over her with the help of his wife. She was badly burnt but they did not take her to hospital until the next morning, and she died on Wednesday,” Mr Ayub said…

“The parents have confessed, saying that they suspected the girl had illicit relations with a boy,” Mr Ayub said. “We have registered a murder case against the girl’s father and mother.”

Pakistan is a deeply conservative country, where women, especially in poor rural areas, enjoy few rights and protection by the police.

This is a war on women.  It has nothing to do with birth control or abortion.

The American Left will have you believe that this is what will happen if the Republicans win on Tuesday.  That somehow making a woman pay for her birth control is comparable to being murdered for talking to a boy.  These are not equivalent things.  Women can go on and have a full and satisfying life even if she has to pay for her own birth control.  Oppressed women everywhere would eagerly swap their oppression for the oppression of having to spend an additional $20 or so a month.

As much as the Left tries to scare women into voting Democrat does anyone actually believe that life under Republicans will be like it is for 15 year old girls in Pakistan-administered Kashmir?  The Left hated Ronald Reagan.  But abortion survived 8 years of Ronald Reagan.  And the porn industry did well in the Eighties.  If the Republicans were going to go ‘Islamic’ conservative you’d think they’d have shut down the porn industry and figured out a way to overturn Roe v. Wade.  But no.  Women were free to do whatever they wanted with their bodies under 8 years of Ronald Reagan.  And under 8 years of George W. Bush.  From casual sex to porn to abortion.  Even if they had to buy their own birth control.

There is no Republican war on women.  And having women pay for their birth control doesn’t mean that Republicans hate women.  It just means Republicans think there is more to a woman than her reproductive parts.  And unlike the Left who think only men can be interested in things that are not vagina-centered, Republicans think women care about things like jobs, the debt, taxes, etc.  They don’t talk down to them as if they are only sexual creatures to be maintained by government.  Republicans appreciate their intelligence and independence.  And want to engage their intellect.  Not just relegate them to a sexual role in the current election cycle.
