Please help and take action
- Hi, I just received this from a friend and thought you should read
The Oprah show recently covered the story of a Nigerian woman, Amina
who has been sentenced to death by stoning because she had a baby out of
wedlock. She has tried to appeal the decision but has been unsuccessful,
thusfar. The head of Nigeria disagrees with these stonings but has so far
done nothing. The father of the baby denied fathering the child and,
has escaped any form of punishment.
Amina Lawal's stoning will occur as soon as she is finished nursing her
child. She will be buried up to her neck in dirt and townsmen will throw
stones at her head until they kill her.
Please help prevent this horrific and inhumane event from occurring.
have to do is visit the Oprah website: www.oprah.com. Click on the Amina
Lawal pop up screen and you will see a pre-written letter addressed to the
Nigerian Ambassador. Just fill out your information on the bottom of the
page and send it. It's as simple as that. You can even go one step
and forward this e-mail to your friends so they can be part of the mission
to save Amina Lawal.It's your chance to save one woman's life.
Thank you very much for reading this.... it takes a minute to help in
this humane cause
