The Plight of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani - Please Help Out a Great Cause!

Over on Emily Veinglory's blog (link here), she's discussing the plight of Sakineh Mohammadi Ashtiani, an Iranian woman who was condemned to death by stoning because three of her judges "think" she committed adultery.  It doesn't matter that they have absolutely no proof to back their suspicions.

It reminds me of the Salem witch trials, where anyone accused of being a witch, regardless of any incriminating details, was automatically put to trial.  And it then became the prosecutor's job to invent evidence to support the claim.

Emily is giving Amnesty International $1 for each comment to her blog.  So please go by and leave a message.
