Before I built a wall I’d ask to know
What I was walling in or walling out,
And to whom I was like to give offense.

Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan has said “no Muslim family” should practice contraception and urged women to have more children. 
Speaking at an educational foundation in Istanbul on Monday, Mr Erdogan said: "I say this openly: We will increase our descendants, we will increase our population. "Family planning, birth control, no Muslim family can practice such an understanding". (The Independent)
Turkey's failed coup was an attempt to block  Erdogan's efforts at moving Turkish society's decades long support of  a secular government to one more closely tied to Islam. Over the coming months, a move to push Turkey into joining the coalition of Islamic states will intensify as religious conservatives seek to force Erdogan's government to strengthen its support for instituting Sharia law throughout Turkey.
