New information: women shouldn’t drive because driving bends their ovaries and that makes their babies come out broken.
It’s a Saudi cleric who discovered this, via research he hasn’t mentioned yet.
“If a woman drives a car, not out of pure necessity, that could have negative physiological impacts as functional and physiological medical studies show that it automatically affects the ovaries and pushes the pelvis upwards,” Sheikh Lohaidan told the news website Sabq.org.
“That is why we find those who regularly drive have children with clinical problems of varying degrees.”
Sheikh Lohaidan is reported to be opposed to reform more generally and granting women more rights in the kingdom.
Maybe if Saudi women did yoga as well as driving, they’d be all right.
