Stop Child Marriage in Iran

This law would legalize and even normalize sexually abusive behavior toward children- quite the opposite of its declared intent. Your signature will demand that Iran's Guardian Council reject this bill from passing into legislation.

no one under 16 should be allowed to marry or be subjected to sexual advances. let children live

Signed. Horrific! A 13-year old is not physically or emotionally capable of dealing with sex. This law would make it easier to rape more little girls. Barbaric!

Signed of course. Sadly this practice is prevalent throughout the Muslim world. Sometimes girls as young as 6 are forced into marriage, often with disastrous results.

I just read AniMaeChi's confirmation that child marriage has been legalized! Sick society that degrades girls and women treating them like sex slaves. I can't remember the child's name that died after being forced to marry a 40 year old man who basically raped her... she was only 8 years old!

I signed the petition because a 13 years old girl or a 15 years old boy can not start a family and raise children while they are still being raised. The strange thing is that I know that the great majority of Iranians are Muslims and in Islam there is nothing called " adopted daughter ". Adoption, as known in USA and Europe where a family takes care of a child and raise him giving him a father's name who isn't his father or a mother's name who is not his mother, is not allowed. A family can take care of an orphan for example and raise him/her but he/she continue holding her/ parent's name.
