Jail and 100 lashes for "adultery"

Saudi Gazette reports:

JEDDAH – A 23-year-old unmarried woman was awarded one-year prison term and 100 lashes for committing adultery and trying to abort the resultant fetus.

The District Court in Jeddah pronounced the verdict on Saturday after the girl confessed that she had a forced sexual intercourse with a man who had offered her a ride. The man, the girl confessed, took her to a rest house, east of Jeddah, where he and four of friends assaulted her all night long.
The girl claimed that she became pregnant soon after and went to King Fahd Hospital for Armed Forces in an attempt to carry out an abortion. She was eight weeks’ pregnant then, the hospital confirmed.

According to the ruling, the woman will be sent to a jail outside Jeddah to spend her time and will be lashed after delivery of her baby who will take the mother’s last name.

As can be noted from the comments, the " reporter used the term the court used to hand down its verdict. The court ruling did not mention it as a 'rape incident.' The court, however, did not release further details about its decision. We just report the story like it is told."

as we say in arabic keep the dish coverd. these incedents are not rape. guys try to have as much fun before marrige by dating girls and promising that he will marry her...then when the date comes he takes her to a rented house were his friends are and rape her and throw her. if she and her likes want to date I think geneve or paris is he right place.

by the way the judge is not a computer he is an experiance man who rules based on experiance.

although to the people who dont know the details of these accidents it may appear as rape.

I just say may god forgive her in the lifeafter by this punishment on earth.

who do westerner bloggers have sympathy with adulterrs?

dont westerners have a religon that forbids adultery?

or is it they like to stand and support wrong doers eveywhere.....because every westerner journalist or blogge has a fantasy that one day he will practice adultery with a super beutifull lady.

its not a free chioce thing or personnal freedom. I have a lot of hadieths that the prophet said about adultery and how it ruins a society....begining with diseases that a hadieth says that where ever a country where adultery exisits diseases that humanity never heard about begins. or ruining of family ties. a person must stand up and be sincere in standing agianst adultery and applying the punishments written in scripts and telling people that its wrong not only passing by it as passing by and advertisment of pepsi cola.

how mush money is spent by adulterers every year?

have the west no decency.

the quran has a verse that explictly says dont have mercy on adulterers and apply the punishment even if you feel they are weak or didnt mean to hurt anybody else......because the bigger picture is that society is hurt by nit punishen them.
