I really the mothers and babies will be released. However it is better for the babies to be in prison with their mothers than not with them on the outside.

It is for mothers and babies. Not just the babies!
They have done nothing wrong. They have been arrested over erdogans fake coup attempt! All these ladies are not involved. They and their babies should be released

I watched a documentary on Netflix about women and babies in a US prison. I thought it was wonderful that the women were allowed to keep their babies. It was proven that they are far less likely to reoffend. It had a lovely atmosphere and all the mothers helped each other. Only non-violent criminals were allowed to keep their babies. Your link is not clicky but if it is a similar set up it is much better than the babies going into care or an institution.

Turkish government has launched a sweeping crackdown across the country, detaining more than 17 thousand woman over alleged to the July 15, 2016 coup attempt. These women have done nothing wrong. this is part of erdogan's extreme regime to 'purge' the country!

anyone who opposes erdogan is thrown into prison. It could have been a simple tweet or Facebook post! Journalists, teachers, politicians, police officers all arrested. Many of the women arrested are in similar positions or are the wives of those accused and are therefore innocent!

this is a cause close to my heart that has affected my friends and family!

Everyday dozens of women get arrested in Turkey on false charges of terror and coup plotting in a systematic persecution campaign launched by the country’s autocratic President Erdoğan who declared a “merciless’ crack down on his critics and opponents. Among those who face harsh treatment in detentions and prisons include mostly women of Gülen movement and Kurdish political movement. Alevis and leftist groups also get their fair share of oppression under the current repressive regime.

The persecution of women who are perceived to be critics of the government has picked up a pace after the failed coup attempt on July 15, 2016 that appears to be staged to set up Erdoğan’s critics for a mass persecution. By targeting especially women, Erdoğan and his partners in the government hopes to break the will of government critics while undermining crucial role of women in supporting the community members, taking care of children who are separated from their jailed fathers.

Erdoğan knows the value of women grassroots networks because he ascended to the power in Turkey partly because of mobilization of conservative and religious women base in Turkey. By exerting pressure on networks sustained in great deal by women in various opposition groups in Turkey, Islamist rulers hope to insure their survival. Since women play essential role both as wives and mothers in keeping the family and on a greater scale the community together, Erdoğan has started directly attacking women in Turkey.
