Death by Stoning
I found this article very disturbing.
Why is it that there was enough evidence to convict the women to death (obviously the fact that they were pregnant indicated they HAD had extramarital sex) but not enough evidence to convict the men who fathered their children?
What gets me is how do we know that these women weren't the victims of sexual assault? Seems pretty likely they weren't the ones initiating sex with these men.
In some countries, it would appear that sex for a woman = death.
