A woman in Turkey has taught her rapist a lesson that he would probably never forget if he had something to remember it with. The woman, who is pregnant, shot the man who raped her and cut his head off. The woman then left the man’s head in the middle of the village for everyone to see.
The woman is five months pregnant and is asking authorities to let her have an abortion in spite of the fact that she has passed the 10 week limit on abortion procedures. Police arrested her and the woman had little remorse. She said: “That is the head of one who toyed with my honor.”
The incident has become a hotbed of conversation in the women’s rights debate around the world. There are some who praise the woman as a hero and others who see her as a deranged criminal. She is a 26-year old mother of two children and says that she was abused by her attacker for several months before she took matters into her own hands. She also says that she was being blackmailed by him, which apparently caused her to lose it.
The woman said that she is willing to die to get an abortion. The man had taken nude pictures of the woman and threatened to show them to others if she didn’t sleep with him. In response, the woman shot the man ten times, with many of the shots aimed at his genitals. She then cut his head off and threw it into the square.
“He kept saying that he would tell everyone about the rape,” the woman said during her testimony. “Everyone would have insulted my children. Now no one can. I saved my honour.”
