The woman, five months pregnant, is demanding authorities let her have an abortion even though she is way beyond the ten week limit allowed for terminations in Turkey.
When arrested by the Police, she said: “That is the head of one who toyed with my honour.”
Womens’ groups in Turkey have praised her as a heroine. It turned out that the woman, aged 26 and a mother-of-two, had been abused by the man for months before she took her revenge and was being blackmailed.
The woman even said she is prepared to die as long as she is allowed to have the abortion.
