    Gesh...there has to be something we can do to try and stop these 'honor killings'. Can the UN get countries to work together to help put a stop to it.

    We start by stopping referring to them as honor anything. Don't even put it in quotes. Using that word gives recognition to some supposedly--in some sense--acceptable cultural quirk. That word does not in any way belong in that sentence.
