A British court recently made legal history — ordering the adoption of an out-of-wedlock Muslim baby to prevent it from suffering an "honor killing." Britain is abuzz over this bizarre and unprecedented ruling.
The London Daily Mail reports:
A baby girl born out of wedlock must be adopted to save her from the risk of being slaughtered in an "honor killing," a court ruled yesterday.
If the unmarried Muslim woman's father found out about the child, he would feel such "unimaginable shame" he could unleash a vengeful bloodbath by killing the baby and his whole family, three senior judges agreed.
