Islamic State of Iraq and Levant (ISIL) forces female captives to use contraception to ensure they do not become pregnant and can be passed among jihadists as sex slaves.
The New York Times, which interviewed more than three dozen Yazidi women who escaped from the terror organization, cited a gynecologist who examined the women and found only a small percentage had become pregnant during their enslavement.
Thousands of Yazidi women and girls were captured and enslaved by ISIL terrorists when they overran northern Iraq.
ISIL considers Iraq’s 650,000 Yazidis to be devil-worshipers.
The United Nations and human rights groups have accused the Islamic State of the systematic abduction and rape of thousands of women and girls as young as 12. Many have been given to jihadists as a reward or sold as sex slaves.
