Turkish mother ‘shoots dead pregnant daughter’

A Turkish mother, 36, has shot dead her daughter, 17, after finding out that she was three months pregnant.

The mother, named as Emine A., found out that her daughter Meryem A. was pregnant during a visit to neighbours, security sources told Doğan News Agency. She then went back home to find a gun and returned to shoot her daughter — who worked as a cashier in a market — five times, they added.

Bystanders outside the apartment block in the Selçuk district of the southern city of Niğde rushed to help and took Meryem to hospital but she died on the way…

    Do you think that sex-ed could have prevented this tragedy?

    Is the headline right? Shouldn’t it be “shoots pregnant daughter dead”? On the other hand, she got 5 bullets so she could have been dead after the first one.

      Not Kathleen Wynne’s version of sex ed.

    • Funny, I also noted the ambiguity of the headline.

  • The Turks are a ‘civilized’ people, only their ”civilization’ is different. So don’t judge. 😉
