    Aye to the forced marriage part, nay to “educating children about male and female equality”. There is no equality between humans and especially not between men and women.

    Abstain in that I don't think it's much of a motion to be honest. I definitely agree with both sentences, but I think they are largely separate issues anyway. The first sentence is not enough to muster an aye from me because it's not calling for any action, and the second sentence doesn't go into enough detail.
