On June 3rd, Amina Lawal is to be be buried in the ground, up to her neck, and then stoned to death. The execution is only being postponed because she is currently breast-feeding her newborn child.

My birthday is June 3rd.

If you are interested in a petition against the execution, you can find one here.

Amina Lawal lives in Nigeria. I find this appalling, but I would also like to point out that barbaric, government-run extermination of human beings is rampant in this very home of the brave. It has actually been growing almost exponently since the late seventies. Since then, US authorities have butchered in excess of 850 individuals, using such savage instruments as electric chairs, gas chambers, poison, hanging ropes, and firing squads.

What happened to the "inalianable right to life"?
