Folks, Iran is still stoning their women. A leading Iranian human rights lawyer and Nobel Laureate says that the hardline Islamic regime is still using medieval punishments on its people, including the stoning of women for adultery and the torture of dissidents. Shirin Ebadi is one of just a few Iranians brave enough to speak out against the regime. She has represented family members of murdered dissidents, women on death row for adultery, and writers accused of blaspheming the regime.Ms Ebadi is particularly concerned about the treatment of women by the regime. She cites the punishment meted out to women convicted of adultery. “Unfortunately stoning exists in our law. According to the law, the punishment for adultery is to be stoned,” she said. “You bury the person up to their waist and then you throw small stones at them until they die. The stones should not be very big so that the person suffers before dying. Two Iranian women are facing imminent execution for adultery. One is sentenced to flogging and then hanging while the other will be buried up to her waist and then stoned to death.Here is the penal law in the Islamic Republic of Iran, article 116 ruling on stoning, from Amnesty International:An example of evolution, folks, at its worst pace.
