  •  She was arrested (0+ / 0-)

    and I think she shouldn't have been arrested. It was very clear to me that there was a choice here for the family---either they could take their "honor" back by killing either the mother or the infant. They chose the latter, and the mother was helpless here.

    After all, she knew what would likely happen to her which is why she hid the pregnancy from her family. If she'd revealed it earlier, she likely would have been killed as a "honor" killing by her family for having sex out of wedlock.
