Erdogan: People Using Birth Control Are “Traitors”

220px-Recep_Tayyip_ErdoganPresident Recep Tayyip Erdogan remains one of the most controversial leaders in Turkey’s history. A devout Muslim, Erdogan has steadily dismantled the secular traditions of country — a rare alternative to the Sharia systems or Islamic republics common in Muslim nations. As in those other countries, the insertion of Islamic rules have been accompanied with crackdowns on civil liberties, press freedom, women’s rights, and religious minorities. Recently, that included heavy fines for a television program for showing the immorality of a man dancing with a Western woman. Erdogan also attempted to rewrite history (with human rights) by recently declaring that Muslims discovered America . As criticism has mounted, he has inflamed his religious followers over a vast media conspiracy against his righteous policies. Now, Erdogan has attacked the use of birth control as a form of “treason” and said that women must commit themselves to having three or more children in the interests of the nation: “One or two is not enough.”

Previously, Erdogan has proposed limits on abortion rights, the morning-after pill and Caesarian sections.

There are many secular Muslims,including many women who reject Erdogan’s views. However, Erdogan’s success is based on his ability to rally and maintain support of Islamic parties and groups.

Erdogan warned that traitors using birth control would make a whole generation to “dry up” in speech at the Istanbul wedding ceremony of the son of businessman Mustafa Kefeli, one of his closest allies. He told the couple not to use birth control “[t]o make our nation stronger.” Ironically, he insisted that more children will “take Turkey above the level of modern civilisations,” despite his efforts rollback on basic human freedoms and to impose religious dogma on the population.

Most people go for the funny story or the touching account for the newlywed couple. Erdogan instead wanted that “In this country, they [meaning those who disagree with him] have been engaged in the treason of birth control for years and sought to dry up our generation.”

Women, according to Erdogan, must focus on producing the requisite number of children: “One (child) means loneliness, two means rivalry, three means balance and four means abundance. And God takes care of the rest.”

He ended appropriately enough with “I have faith in you.”

  1. yea each guy has a different point of view depending on what he/she cares the most…
    The reality is that
    Erdogan is a born-populist and political engineer having a Phd on rhetorics

  2. Inga, Muslim procreation is more than scary. It’s a threat to freedom & life every where Islam goes. You do know establishing & enforcing Sharia law is at the top of the list of the radical Muslims, don’t you. Not saying every Muslim is a threat. But if you have been paying attention, you’d know a very significant % of Muslims want to enforce an Islamic Caliphate using Sharia law as the basis for their dominance over the population.

    Have you not noticed that ‘honor’ killings have happened a few times HERE, in the USA?

    Did you do any research on Muslim demographics…if you did, you’d know where I am coming from. Add to your research

    Stealth Jihad

    If that doesn’t wake ya up you are probably a Muslim plant.


  3. So it’s ok if non Muslims procreate, but Muslim procreation is scary? Maybe I’ve misunderstood you?

  4. There is not much time left before most of Europe will be dominated by Muslims because most Muslims there DON’T use BC. They will out populate the countries they are establishing themselves in. That WOULD INCLUDE the USA.

    Go to YouTube and find

    Germany,France,Holland will turn into Muslim states by 2050 …

    and on the net look up

    Worldwide Muslim Demographics

    The rising Muslim population is a VERY serious issue that we all need to learn about.

    I am a Christian & I believe in BC. Regarding BC a fellow believer once said “God won’t do for you what you can do for yourself.” Made sense to me.

    I am not for abortion pills as BC. We have killed off enough of our future via abortion as it is.

    To many people got suckered into thinking earth’s population is a threat. It’s not. If you do the research you’ll learn Muslims didn’t get the memo. 🙂


  5. I see the government in Turkey straying from what Kemal Atatürk envisioned. I am interested in knowing what President Erdoğan’s end game is.
