Egypts new Islamist-dominated parliament is preparing to introduce a controversial law that would allow husbands to have sex with their deceased wives up to six hours after death. Known as the "farewell Intercourse" law, the measure is being championed as part of a raft of reforms introduced by the parliament that will also see the minimum age of marriage lowered to 14 for girls.
Egypts National Council for Women is campaigning against the changes, saying that marginalizing and undermining the status of women would negatively affect the countrys human development'.
Dr. Mervat al-Talawi, head of the NCW, wrote to the Egyptian Peoples assembly speaker, Dr. Saad al-Katatni, addressing her concerns.
Egyptian journalist Amro Abdul Samea reported in the al Ahram newspaper that Talawi complained about the legislations, which are being introduced under alleged religious interpretations.
The subject of a husband having sex with his dead wife arose in May 2011 when Moroccan cleric Zamzami Abdul Bari said marriage remains valid even after death.
He also said that women have the right to have sex with her dead husband, alarabiya.net reported.
It seems the topic, which has sparked outrage, has now been picked up on by Egypts politicians.

No difference between Islam and Christianity.
So if a guy murders his wife in an honor killing, does he still get one last freebee?
Not only is it the religion of peace, it is also the religion of love.
Pretty soon it will happen in America, a Moslem will want to have sex with his recently diseased 14 year old wife.
I swear they will be worse than Nazi Zombies.
What part of filthy savage unsophisticated sick subhuman animals did I stutter on...
Well, there goes the old “I have a headache excuse...”
Sorry I meant recently departed though anyone that is a follower of Islam does have an infection within them.
“Over my dead body” will have a new meaning now.
Uhh, I just grossed myself out! Islam disgusts me and every time I think they can NOT possibly be any more depraved another of these nasty reports shows up!
I guess its possible some would not be able to tell a difference...
I wonder if he would eventually come around? A really committed Liberal would view this story in two ways: an initial view, and then an "enlightened" view:
1) No way! There's no evidence! You're making this stuff up! That's just crazy talk! It isn't happening!
2) Well, you know, cultures are different, and who are we to judge, and it's really just sex, and maybe if we allowed this in our country people wouldn't be so uptight. It's for the
children. It's for the wife. It's for the ... well, let's not argue theology. I wouldn't want to be judgmental -- that would be so evil and Christian.
Oh baby, you’re so cold.
Still no major retractions yet. Wouldn’t surprise me if it suddenly turned out to be true, certainly not in a country that has been engaging in “virginity tests” and molesting women in that manner.
Islam: Direct from the anus of Satan.
This is sub-animal.
Are the wives allowed one last stiff one?
They prefer their live sheep, goats and small boys, anyway.
What’s one dead wife more or less when you have three or more left over—after all, WHO’S COUNTING?
The only ethical or moral difference between islam and NAMBLA is....
Give me a few minutes, I’ll think of something.
