Afghan women who set themselves alight

Chris Johnson of the Midwest Conservative Journal posted this from the New York Times. I think it is so important to repost it. I call on everyone to pray for these women and all the women in Afghanistan.

WARNING this video has graphic, disturbing content.

This is what happens when you have a society that doesn't value women and it is a testament to how little we have helped Afghan women despite invading and getting rid of the Taliban. The lack of economic security in Afghanistan has led to desparate measures and decades of war and the lack of national law is ruining women's lives.
