You have to ask yourself why God would have instituted love at all and incorporated it in the human makeup (and possibly – probably – also that of other animals). We could have been created devoid any emotions at all. Why give us love? Why did God do that to us?
Since we have it, why does man do this, especially to a family member, a daughter, who should be loved instead of being seen as chattel? Why to an unborn, innocent, loved and wanted child?
There is a human right to love. God gave us the capacity. It was intentional and is a mystery. That right to love, whomever, must be respected and protected. No one and no government or religion should ever stand against anyone’s God-given right to love.

LAHORE, Pakistan (AP) — A pregnant woman was stoned to death Tuesday by her own family outside a courthouse in the Pakistani city of Lahore for marrying the man she loved.
The woman was killed while on her way to court to contest an abduction case her family had filed against her husband. Her father was promptly arrested on murder charges, police investigator Rana Mujahid said, adding that police were working to apprehend all those who participated in this “heinous crime.”
