signed noted and shared. Leave these poor children alone, to live a healthy childhood. This is perversion at it's worst, lock these men away because they are truly sick.

Looking back, at eighteen I was too young to marry and have a child. Hindsight.

Previously signed. Thanks for sharing, Rose. This practice is disgusting and deprives girls of their childhoods and education and it needs to be stopped.

children are still supposed to enjoy their childhood and not to be forced to do what only adults are supposed to do. This is for me horrible practice. It is stealing their childhood, their right to live according to their age!!

Note that the USA, UK and the EU happily trade with and even support with Aid countries where this is either openly legal or tacitly permitted.

They could say anything and I wouldn't even know it.

What's worse, they don't need my permission.

America, once I loved thee.
