Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan, who managed to get the EU to pay Turkey $3 billionand also export its Syrian refugees, and to permit Turkish citizens to travel freely throughout the EU, has made it known to the world Turkey’s position on “women’s rights.”

The BBC reports that in a speech on live television, Erdogan said that “no Muslim family” should consider birth control or family planning and that women must have at least three children.

Erdogen was the prime minister of Turkey for 12 years and became its president in 2014. At a 2014 wedding he famously said:

“Contraception is Treason. Women are not equal to men. Muslims must multiply descendants.”

Also in the same year, at a meeting in Istanbul, he said, “You cannot put women and men on an equal footing. It is against nature.”

According to the Anadolu news agency, he added, “In the workplace, you cannot treat a man and a pregnant woman in the same way,” because women cannot perform the same work as men; doing so goes against their “delicate nature.”

“Our religion regards motherhood very highly,” he said. “Feminists don’t understand that, they reject motherhood.”

According to the Turkish Statistical Institute, Turkey’s fertility rate is slightly about 2.5 percent, which the BBC reports, is “slightly above the replacement level and half the rate in 1980.” Despite this however, Turkey’s fertility rate is one of the highest in Europe, and the U.N. reports that Turkey “has a substantially unmet need for family planning.”

Erdogen says this because of what Islam teaches about women, children, procreation, and global conquest.
