“This is appalling; I hope that will be able to restore her nose cosmetically.”

“Her doctor will likely be able to build a nose, although not as perfect as her original nose. In the future, a more advanced operation will be common, using more tissue generating techniques to grow pre-shaped cartilage on a synthetic scaffold and more specialized skin perhaps with stem cells.
I hope this first series of operations goes well, and when the more advanced procedures become available, I hope she has access to them.”
“Two years is enough for unemployment benefits. Make another, different program to help after that. Otherwise we are going to have three, four, and five years of uninterrupted benefits.”

“And by the way, are you at work? If so, do you consider it working to be commenting on HP? Ah, I see, that's okay for repubs, isn't it? Just show up, collect the money, don't do anything then complain about the dems.”

“You expect the dems to actually work rather than doing a quick fix for the unmeployed which is to continue their welfare/unemployment checks?”

“She apparently didn't even do that.
If your daughter or sister were found alone in a room with a man not you or her brother, she would face the same penalty. Even if nothing happened and a video camera could verify it.
That sounds sane to you?”

“It's her country, and the majority judges apparently hate women and lack empathy. Sound familiar?”

“Talking of laws:
Article 68. If a man or a woman repeats his or her confession of adultery four times before the judge, he or she shall receive the designated punishment, but if he or she repeats his or her confession fewer than four times, the punishment shall be at the judge's discretion.
Article 74. Adultery, whether punishable by flogging or stoning, may be proven by the testimony of four just men or that of three just men and two just women.
Article 75. If adultery is punishable only by flogging it can be proven by the testimony of two just men and four just women.
Article 76. The testimony of women alone or in conjunction with the testimony of only one just man shall not prove adultery but it shall constitute false accusation which is a punishable act.

A translated court document handed out to journalists appears to show that judges were divided about Ashtiani's guilt. The minority opinion held that she was being tried twice for the same crime, and that in any case there was no proof she cheated on her husband.
"Prosecution in this case has no legal justification as no positive religious or legal evidence can be found," the minority opinion read, according to the document. "The above-named is believed to be innocent of the charge."
so, by their own opinion, she broke no laws...... I believe I also read in previous articles, that is was the man's family who brought the charges so they could have the property.. by muslim faith and Qu'ron, you must have 3 witnesses to the adultery- not "I kinda think she might of"...
once again, women are persecuted by greed in the name of religon..
and David, may others have more compassion to you then you have for them”
