Very clever. But I'm wondering what happens to these young women and in many cases girls after they are pulled away from their parents at the airport. The State can't support them till they are of age. And trying to change ancient (Muslim mostly) culture about young women being forced into marriage will never happen. But maybe this can save the lives of some.

Better is to have your young daughters compress (that's squeeze) an aspirin between their legs. That will keep the heathens away.

You are missing the whole point. You obviously didn't read the article. It's not the girls behavior which leads to this situation. it is the father and mother's insistence of marrying them off to somebody they don't even know.
