Amanda Parker is the Senior Director of AHA Foundation, created by activist and free speech champion Ayaan Hirsi Ali. Amanda is back to discuss the realities of what happens when teenaged girls get married in the 48 states that do not protect their rights. The sad fact is that while the US State Department recognizes marriage under the age of 18 as a Human Rights Violation, pretty much all teenaged girls in America can be married off to a grown man who grooms and impregnates them (Statutory rape) or a guy her parents contract her to marry (Yes, that happens here). Amanda shares the scientifically-proven adverse results of teenaged girls getting married. They and their children are more likely to live in abuse and poverty, and these marriages end in divorce more than 70% of the time.
