Well actually I cannot see how they are related??

Anyway, right Turkie is not the only place. But that woman had applied for state protection claiming that her husband would kill her otherwise but she was turned down by the prosecutor. And 2 days later it happened. Is it also the same everywhere?

 

It is related because they both relate to violence against women....I don´t think rape is that different from murder.  One is the murder of your body and the other is a murder of your soul.   

Anyway to answer your question, yes.  It happens in the US.  A very good friend of mine went thru a nightmarish ordeal with a jealous boyfriend.  She was unable to "prove" he was stalking her and she could not get protection from the police on the basis of his harrassment.  He eventually was arrested when he broke into her parents home and tried to stab her in the middle of the night. 

My point is that nothing ever happens until bad things happen.  Then, MAYBE, things begin to change but they change at a snail pace.  The problem is NOT what to do with the criminal it is how to stop men from growing into criminals.  What needs to happen is a fundamental way that women are viewed in patriarchial societies.  Boys need to be raised differently so that they do not grow up into the types of monsters that think its OK to abuse women because they are property or inferior.

I believe, in some other places they can get effective protection measures (like relocation to an unknown place, and/or getting a new identity and even a new face after a plastic surgery operation).

 Battered womens shelters are not government run but private institutions.  They must still work within the confines of the law and ultimately must seek protection under the law.  And why should a woman be forced to run away, move from her friends and family, uproot her kids, have plastic surgery????  Why should the woman be punished?  I do understand what you are saying...that some women in some parts of the world have more options...but would YOU want to take some of these options or would you want this person to be stopped?

Turkish health officials look to reduce number of caesareans

 

The Health Ministry will launch a campaign to reduce the number of cesarean operations due to the growing number of women opting for such births. ‘Health personnel who recommend conventional ways of giving birth to their patients instead of operations will be granted a double wage,’ a doctor says
At 42.5 percent, Turkey tops all other countries in the number of cesarean operations its doctors perform.

Turkey’s Health Ministry has announced new plans to double the pay doctors receive if they deliver babies normally in a bid to discourage the increasing preference for cesarean births, according to news reports.

Daily Radikal reported Wednesday that the ministry plans to begin a public awareness campaign next month to reduce the number of caesarean operations. In addition to encouraging the use of midwives, the campaign will aim to inform people about conventional birth methods while rewarding doctors, nurses and midwives who encourage more natural birthing procedures.

“The health staff who recommended conventional ways instead of operations to their patients will be granted double wage,” said Ümit Göktolga, head of Ankara’s Zübeyde Hanım Obstetrics and Gynecology Training and Research Hospital.

Göktolga also said prominent people would be used to front the campaign to explain the benefits of natural birth.

At 42.5 percent, Turkey tops all other countries in the number of caesarean operations its doctors perform. As such, government authorities, along with the Gynecology Association, are aiming to reduce this figure to 35 percent by 2013. Ministry data showed that cesarean rates in Turkey increased from 36.3 percent to 42.7 percent between 2007 and 2009.

 Great. But the worst culprits are the private hospitals. I get fed up of having the following conversation:

"When is your baby due?"

"15 June"

"Well, about then, it may come early or late."

"Oh, no, it will be at 3:30 pm I have the Caesarean booked"

"Think again - it can have side effects, including you being in pain when needing to look after a new baby"

 

I reckon the doctors recommend it for 2 reasons:

1. They dont have to wait up through the night, and can deliver the baby during a 9 to 5 working day

2. They can charge more money

Caesarean should only be for a medical emergency.

Although therre surely are advantages to an elective ceasarean, like knowing the exact date of delivery and pain free labour, there are more disadvantages that people hardly ever think about. First of all, it is a surgery, your muscles and skin are cut and it takes time for the wound to heal, not to mention the scar. Painkillers work wonders but for about 6 weeks after the C-section you will be uncomfortable. You´ll have a newborn to learn and yourself to mind. Just as if having the child was an easy part lol I had an emergency section with my 1st son and I am really hoping I won´t have to have another one. I´d never ask for it on my own.

Girl´s death in ´honor killing´ angers main Turkish opposition

 

A 19-year-old woman is dead following an alleged ‘honor killing’ at the hands of her boyfriend in the southern province of Mersin. Republican People Party Deputy Canan Arıtman has urged the government to take measures on women’s murders in response to the death. ‘The state should consider the reasons for the increase in such murders,’ she says

A 19-year-old girl killed in what appears to be an honor killing in Mersin was buried Tuesday as parliamentary deputies urged the government to take measures on women’s murders in the wake of the death.

“In the last six months, a woman was killed everyday through domestic violence. The state could not protect the right to live, which is the first right of humans. It is dangerous that the perception that ‘males may decide to divorce, but female may not’ is being cultivated in society,” a motion drafted by members of the Republican People Party, or CHP, said Wednesday.

The body of Hatice Fırat was found Monday in the Mediterranean province. It is alleged that she ran away with her boyfriend Feb. 3 but was eventually located by her family. The girl’s brother, Mahsun Fırat, is suspected of stabbing Hatice Fırat more than 40 times following an alleged decision by the family to kill the girl for besmirching the family’s honor.

The girl’s funeral was conducted by a group of 50 women Tuesday in Mersin’s Güneykent cemetery after her family refused to take responsibility for the ceremony. 

The women shouted slogans during the funeral, saying, “We are not going to be anyone’s honor,” “End honor killings,” “Hands that hurt women should be broken.”

Police have detained 11 family members, as well the girl’s boyfriend, but Mahsun Fırat remains missing, Doğan news agency reported.

Galatasaray’s football derby against Fenerbahçe will be monitored by the Guinness World Records, who may register a record for “loudest sport event” during the match, the Istanbul club announced.

According to a statement released on Galatasaray’s official website, a commission of Guinness World Records members will be present at Türk Telekom Arena on Friday to see if the club’s supporters win themselves recognition in sports history.

The club said the previous record for loudest crowd was 128.7 decibels reached during the National Football League game between the Denver Broncos and the New England Patriots at Mile High Stadium in Denver, Colorado.

“Galatasaray aims to add another first-time event to its history and wants to put its name in the Guinness Book of World Records,” the statement read. “We call on our supporters to join in this attempt for a record.”

Friday’s Galatasaray-Fenerbahçe derby kicks off at 9 p.m.

And what happened to series about Süleyman The Magnificent? Is it continued or stopped?

Genelev manzaralı cami!

"Namazımız kabul olmaz çünkü..."

Genelev manzaralı cami!

Antalya’da geneleve 10 metre uzaklıkta cami yapıldı. Kıbleye durduklarında karşılarında genelevin bulunduğunu belirten vatandaşlar, namazlarının kabul olmayacağını düşündüğünden başka camilere gidiyor.

Soner ÖZCAN / AHT


Antalya’nın Kepez İlçesi Kuzeyyaka Mahallesi’nde 42 yıllık genelevin karşısına inşa edilen Abdurrahman Gazi Camii geçen yıl ibadete açıldı. Antalya Müftülüğü de camiye imam atadı. Ancak bazı mahalle sakinleri genelevle arasında sadece 10 metre bulunan camide namaz kılmıyor. Kıbleye durduklarında karşılarında genelevin bulunduğunu belirten vatandaşlar, “Namazımız kabul olmaz” diyerek başka camilere gidiyor. Genelevin kaldırılması için 2 bin imza topladıklarını belirten Muhtar Binali Güney “Belediye Başkanı genelevi kaldırma sözü verdi, bir yıldır bekliyoruz” dedi.

 

Translation:

A new mosque built at Kepez Antalya is not frequented by the nearby people because of the brothel 10 meters away from the mosque. People say "We have stand to the direction of brothel for our prayer that would make it worthless, that´s why we go to the other mosques around."
