Save Noura

Calling all folks with a twitter account, to help this poor girl

Chasing Unicorns

Noura Hussein lives in Sudan. And that’s likely where she will die. Very soon. At 16 years old, her family forced her to marry a man she did not want to marry. She refused to consummate the marriage, and so he raped her.

The first rape occurred with the help of his family. They pinned her down while her new husband forced sex on her.

As well having it directed to my face when I use the facilities for disabled people, having an invisible illness…

    I’m more than happy and willing to fight battles other people don’t feel they have either the energy or the voice to.

    • Yes. Not only women, but certainly women. More and more, people are mistreating, abusing others left and right. The world is not a nice place to be right now.

      Ben, how are you doing, health wise? I think yours was the first IBD blog I read, and it helped me a lot. I hope you are well.

  2. Another reminder that women’s lives are not valued all over the world. I have to wonder if the U.S. can be a legitimate voice in this debate.

  3. So terribly sad and unbelievable that this can still go on in some cultures. I am praying for Noura and others that are mistreated under sheria law. Thank you for sharing so more people can be aware of these atrocities.
