There is no shortage of atrocities committed by ISIS, but what happened to a pregnant woman in Iraq is still beyond the pale. Feral Pirali was captured by ISIS, and spoke about the horrifying torture a friend of hers was forced to endure.
Pirali was a Yazidi activist and interpreter, and in 2010, she was being held by ISIS. During the Women in the World Summit, she told the story of her friend, held by ISIS in 2010 while she was pregnant. Her friend was not able to escape, and the terrorists did the unthinkable to her… and to her baby.
First, they cut open her stomach and removed the baby from her womb. But they were only getting started. “They raped the baby, and they raped her, and they thought she was dead so they left her behind,” Pirali explained. But somehow, her friend survived.
