      Hi, I just received this from a friend and thought you should read
      it.........
      Thank you,
      Christiane

      Hi Friends.
      The Oprah show recently covered the story of a Nigerian woman, Amina
      Lawal,
      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,
      hence,
      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.
      All you
      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
      further
      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
