New York Times Examines Islamic State’s Use Of Birth Control For ‘Sex Slaves’

New York Times: To Maintain Supply of Sex Slaves, ISIS Pushes Birth Control
“…It is a particularly modern solution to a medieval injunction: According to an obscure ruling in Islamic law cited by the Islamic State, a man must ensure that the woman he enslaves is free of child before having intercourse with her. … To keep the sex trade running, the fighters have aggressively pushed birth control on their victims so they can continue the abuse unabated while the women are passed among them…” (Callimachi, 3/12).
