Thread Name: BS: Should 'Jihadi bride' come back to UK?
Subject: RE: BS: Should 'Jihadi bride' come back to UK?
If she is near term in her pregnancy flying is not recommended and road travel to Turkey would be hazardous so I suspect she will be stuck where she is. That is not ideal as far as her unborn child is concerned and the resulting publicity concerning the mother will likely travel back to wherever she is being held. That also is not ideal. It is entirely a mess of her own making so I have limited sympathy for her. I am totally against any special effort being made to repatriate her, there are many many other pregnant women in the world far more deserving of help. Undoubtedly in the ideal world her unborn child would be better in the UK but I do not see a realistic way for this to happen without diverting resources better used elsewhere.
