What a horrible way to die. That poor girl. It is disgraceful the way women are treated in Pakistan. Time for these so called 'honor killings' to be stopped! Angrily and sadly noted. Thank you Myriah.

It is a terrible outrage, every human being that reads this should be outraged by it. There is no reason for this kind of behavior killing a teenage girl and her baby, it is insane.
