Coeds sex slave dating

The injunction against raping a pregnant slave is functionally the only protection for the captured women.A total of 37 women abducted by the Islamic State who agreed to be interviewed over three trips to northern Iraq described an uneven system: Some fighters insisted on double and even triple forms of contraception, while others violated the guidelines entirely.Although it remains unclear why some hewed closely to the regulations while others flouted them, one emerging pattern was that women held by senior commanders were more likely to be given contraception, in contrast to those held by junior fighters, who perhaps were less versed on the rules.During the year she was held by the Islamic State (Isis), she spent her days dreading the smell of the Isis fighter’s breath, the disgusting sounds he made and the pain he inflicted on her body.More than anything, she was tormented by the thought she might become pregnant with her rapist’s child. When I was sold from one man to another, the box of pills came with me,” explained the girl, who learned only months later that she was being given birth control.

That was not enough for the third man who bought her, she said.He quizzed her on the date of her last menstrual cycle and, unnerved by what he perceived as a delay, gave her a version of the so-called morning-after pill, causing her to start bleeding. Finally he came into her room, closed the door and ordered her to lower her pants. Instead he pulled out a syringe and gave her a shot on her upper thigh.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.More than three dozen Yazidi women who recently escaped the Islamic State and who agreed to be interviewed for this article described the numerous methods the fighters used to avoid pregnancy, including oral and injectable contraception, and sometimes both.But overall, the methodical use of birth control during at least some of the women’s captivity explains what doctors caring for recent escapees observed: Of the more than 700 rape victims from the Yazidi ethnic group who have sought treatment so far at a United Nations-backed clinic in northern Iraq, just 5 per cent became pregnant during their enslavement, according to Dr Nagham Nawzat, the gynaecologist carrying out the examinations.It is a stunningly low figure given that the normal fertility rate for a young woman is between 20 per cent and 25 per cent in any given month, four to five times the rate that has been recorded so far, said Dr Nezar Ismet Taib, who heads the ministry of health directorate in Dohuk, which oversees the clinic where the victims are being treated.
