Turkey’s Akit TV: 12 to 17 year old girls “ideal age for childbirth,” those who oppose child marriage are enemies of Islam


From Greek City Times

Girls aged 12 to 17 are “superwomen,” at the “ideal age for childbirth,” Muttalip Kutluk Ozguven, a computer scientist, said during a televised debate about the Istanbul Convention on violence against women and domestic violence broadcast on the pro-government conservative Akit TV channel on Tuesday, Ahval reported.

“Ask any doctor you like,” Ozguven said, “the human beings with the most supreme qualities are girls between these ages.”

Bodies of young girls are “perfect,” and have “magnificent regeneration capabilities,”  Ozguven continued, who is also an academic at the Istanbul Aydin Universitesi. “This is the ideal age to give birth to the first child.”

He has been criticised within Turkey, as well as outside that country. At Hürriyet Newspaper and also this publication

According to the World Health Organisation, the leading cause of death for girls between ages 15 to 19, is pregnancy and birth-related complications. Mothers aged 10 to 19 “face higher risks of eclampsia, puerperal endometritis, and systemic infections … and babies of adolescent mothers face higher risks of low birth weight, preterm delivery and severe neonatal conditions,” the WHO says.
