Casting the First Stone

|

Zhila Izadi recently received 55 lashes after Iranian authorities discovered the 13-year-old girl was pregnant, allegedly by her 15-year-old brother. She allegedly received the beating just days before giving birth. The brother received the same punishment. But Izadi may still be lucky. She was originally sentenced to death by stoning, and that sentence was changed at the last minute after an international protest.
