Mary C. started this petition to President Donald J. Trump and

Honor violence (up to and including honor killings) and forced marriages (which are often between a young girl and a man older than her) are on the rise in the West, including the USA.  There needs to be a limit on acceptance and tolerance of religious or cultural traditions and practices, particularly if those traditions and practices go against everything we stand for.  America is the land of freedom and opportunity, and all about the right to make one's own choices and pursue one's own happiness and goals.  Forced marriages and honor killings (along with other forms of honor violence) are not only basic human rights violations, but go against everything America values and represents.  Crack down on these practices and make them forbidden in our country; no excuses!
