From the article:

Quote
Jean Maher, president of the France-based Egyptian Union for Human Rights Organization, said that nearly 800 Coptic Christian women have been kidnapped, raped and forced to convert to Islam since 2009.

That number has only increased since the revolution in February, Maher said.

how can anybody force anyone to change their religion, can't they understand its a matter of deep spiritual faith? May god be with all the women and their families. May he seal their hearts so it can neither be doubtfull nor broken. Amen

I have been read some reports coming out of Egypt.

Coptic women are first kidnapped and then raped.
Muslims say that unless the woman converts and marries the Muslim with whom she had sex, she would face a capital offense charge and be killed. Some Coptic families have tried to rescue their daughters only to have their homes burned down and their family members killed in revenge.

The Muslims are rarely held accountable for such rapes, murders, and home burnings.
In fact it seems like the Egyptian police are part of the conspiracy.

Here is a recent article dated July 23, 2011
CSI Sheds Light on Abuse of Coptic Christian Women In Egypt
http://www.copticworld.org/articles/294/

Copts are not the only victims of these Muslim rapes.
Here is the story of a Hindu woman who was raped and killed by Muslims.

Lord Jesus Christ, Son and Word of the Living God, through the prayers of Thy Most Pure Mother and of all Thy Angels and Saints, have mercy on the Coptic Christians and save them.
