Amina 16 Yrs Old Forced to Marry Rapist in Morocco: Commits Suicide

Sixteen-year-old “Amina” was forced by a judge to marry her rapist. The judgement was designed to “resolve” the stigma of rape and remove mandated punishment from the rapist and “restore” her honor. Apparently the marriage happened. He was ten years her senior. The unhappy couple were living with his parents, and neither he or his parents treated her well. Amina used rat poison to end her life. At least she denied them the glee of burying her up to her neck and then stoning her to death. I don’t know how women bear their lives in Muslim countries. I don’t know how the children, both young boys and girls, bear being raped by Muslim men.
