Abolish Honor Killings sign now

We the undersigned would like to express our objection to Honor Killings (the legalized murder of women for the sake of restoring family honor in Jordan). We also urge the Jordanian Parliament to address this issue and abolish articles 340 and 98 of the Jordanian Penal code which are used to sanction such crimes and protect the perpetrators. While we respect the fact that there are cultural differences between east and west, we believe that murder can not be justified as a cultural practice. We also urge the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights to get involved in this issue and demand the above articles be abolished as they are in direct breech of existing Human Rights treatise, conventions and declarations that have been signed and agreed to by the Jordanian government in the past.
