JORDANIAN police said on Sunday they found the burned body of a pregnant woman whose throat had been slit and belly cut open showing her four-month-old foetus, in an apparent "honour killing".
"We found the body of the woman at dawn in Ruseifeh (east of Amman). Her throat was slit in a hideous way. The body was burned after the murder," a police spokesman said.
"We believe it was an honour crime. The belly of the woman, who was in her twenties, was cut open and we could see her four-month-old unborn child, who was dead too. Investigations are still under way."
Between 15 and 20 women die in so-called "honour" murders each year in the Arab kingdom, despite government efforts to curb such crimes.
Murder is punishable by death in Jordan, but in "honour killings" courts can commute or reduce sentences, particularly if the victim's family asks for leniency.
Good news for Dr. Gosnell. He has an alibi.
Another reason why the left can’t wait for Sharia law to be the law of the land, so many ways to injure or kill women with little or no consequence!
Ignorant savages. Islam needs to be outlawed and treated as a criminal enterprise.

Are you kidding? Muslim countries (and the ChiComs) are some of our best allies and trading partners. /sarc.
Well, why didn’t you just say so? Hells Bells, we can’t interfere with trade! Stupid woman just needed to know her place, that’s all I was saying.
There is no clearer example of why Islime is of the devil than the belief that slaughtering a woman is ‘honorable’. BUT in America, we have little to lend credulity to US since we have a major percentage of American who believe slaughtering an alive unborn child is ‘honorable’ as a rite, excuse me, a right for women.
We call those that kill babies ‘savages’ as well.
Go out of the house without a veil?
Did she smile at a man not related to her?
Did she frown at a male relative?
Did she say she needed to go to the store and no one would drive her so she drove herself?
And soetoro support these fiends.
A pity the fanatics don’t kill each other even faster.
There they go again that religion of peace!
If youd like to be on or off, please FR mail me.
If it's the head of the family who kills her, then of course the family will ask for leniency.
“can commute or reduce sentences, particularly if the victim’s family asks for leniency.”
well, duh, many times the victim’s family is the murderering party
My God is a God of loving and forgiveness
