Why does the US have so many child brides? #USchildbrides #meToo
2:00 Idaho has the highest rate of child brides. In 25 US states THERE IS NO SET MINIMUM AGE BELOW WHICH A CHILD CAN’T GET MARRIED. !!!!!!
IN THE OTHER STATES IN CAN BE AS LOW AS 13 OR 14 YEARS OLD !!!!
Our Foreign Policy around the world is NO GIRLS SHOULD BE MARRIED BEFORE 18 but this is NOT THE US POLICY FOR OUR OWN GIRLS. WHAT IS UP WITH THIS ??? BULLSHIT!!!
While countries like Zimbabwe, Malawi and El Salvador have recently banned child marriage, it remains legal in the US – and half of states have no set minimum age below which you cannot get married.
For the BBC’s America First? series the BBC’s Aleem Maqbool is exploring health and social issues where the US, the richest country in the world, does not perform well in international rankings.

COULD THIS ALL BE ABOUT THE ORIGINAL SET UP FOR ANOTHER #METOO ABUSE THAT WOMEN FACE EVERY DAMN DAY IN LIFE?
CHILD BRIDES ARE OR HAVE BEEN SEXUALLY HARRASSED!
Few in Washington are saying #MeToo. California congresswoman wants to change that.
@RepSpeier California Congresswoman Jackie Speier is hoping to change that. The veteran lawmaker is planning to introduce new measures that would shine a light on sexual harassment in Congress and make it easier for victims of harassment to report it.
On Capitol Hill, there’s been mostly silence. Many female lawmakers have tweeted about #MeToo in recent days, but their spokespeople say they were using the tag to show their solidarity with harassment victims, not to signal they, too, have been harassed. Just four women senators participated in an Oct. 22 Meet the Press segment on NBC that asked them to share their #MeToo stories. None of the incidents related by Elizabeth Warren, D-Mass., Heidi Heitkamp, D-N.D., Claire McCaskill, D-Mo., or Mazie Hirono, D-Hawaii, occurred in Washington. The ratio of complaints to employees in Congress is one-seventh what it is in the executive branch.
Women of the Senate Share Their #MeToo Stories of Harassment
The Movement of #MeToo How a hashtag got its power
Roy Moore thinks gay people should be jailed & Muslims should be banned from Congress. Republican Senators are now shocked to discover he’s a terrible person?
Breitbart: Hey, Let’s Litigate Age of Consent
Moore and his allies distort Scripture and law beyond recognition to pursue their selfish ends.
This defense of Roy Moore from AL state Auditor Jim Ziegler: “Take Joseph and Mary. Mary was a teenager and Joseph was an adult carpenter. They became parents of Jesus.”
There will be a Federalist piece within the next 24 hours about how judgmental urban elites don’t understand Roy Moore and Southern courtship culture.
A former classmate of Judge Roy Moore at the University of Alabama Law School was not surprised at allegations that the Republican Senate nominee had sexual contact with a 14-year-old girl in the late 1970s. Instead, he warns the state “to beware of false prophets.” “No I wasn’t surprised,” the classmate tells the Washington Examiner on condition of anonymity for fear of reprisal on his law firm. “Because I have seen, all my life, Bible-thumping, God-fearing hypocrites.”
Though Moore was a year ahead, the two had class together shortly before the GOP Senate hopeful allegedly began a sexual relationship with a 14-year-old girl. According to a bombshell Washington Post report, four different women say Moore pursued a relationship with them while they were still teenagers. Moore, naturally, claims the allegations are “smear tactics” and elected officials are even invoking Mary and Joseph to defend him.
