No Muslim family should engage in birth control or family planning, Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan said on Monday, calling again on pious Muslims to have more children.

“We will multiply our descendants. They talk about population planning, birth control. No Muslim family can have such an approach,” he said in a speech in Istanbul broadcast live on television. “Nobody can interfere in God’s work. The first duty here belongs to mothers,” he said.

Women’s groups and opposition politicians have criticized Erdogan, a devout Muslim for telling women how many children to have and dismissing the Western idea of gender equality. He has previously equated birth control with treason.

    Yes yes … we’ve heard this crap thinking before … Females must make babies ’till they drop.

    In the ‘Real-Test-Wars’ of modern weapons, no-one should actually worry about losing another 50,000 civilian lives when attacking against ISIS or anyone else … they can more than make that up in a day.

    SO Ladies … Assuming you love all your 10 or so kids and can remember their names, which ones will you be choosing to go die in glorious WAR for Erdogan?

    Yeah, go ahead and keep making babies that perpetuate your poverty, ignorance and misery. Meanwhile, the rest of us will enjoy lives with running water and vaccines.
