Iranian child bride sentenced to death by hanging after giving birth to stillborn baby

A child bride is facing execution for murder after giving birth to a stillborn baby.
Zeinab Sokian was sentenced to death in 2012 when she just 17 after giving birth to a stillborn baby in her village in northern Iran.
Under Iranian law, murder carries the death penalty.
Under the Sharia laws in Iran, women are not considered human beings.
Under Sharia in the Muslim world a woman is considered half of a man because it is written in the Koran that a woman has only half a brain.
The Western world ignores the cruel violation of women’s rights in Iran.
According to sharia laws in Iran:
– There is no freedom of religion or freedom of speech.
– There is no equality between people (the non-Muslim is not equal to the Muslim).
– There are no equal rights for men and women.
– There is no democracy or a separation between religion and state politics.
Sharia is incompatible with Western values.
