Saudi Gazette reported A 23-year-old unmarried woman was awarded one-year prison term and 100 lashes for committing adultery
An unmarried rape victim is convicted for adultery?and trying to abort the resultant fetus.
Not for getting an abortion, but for asking for one. Even most ProLife people will make an exception for rape, incest, or life of the mother.The District Court in Jeddah pronounced the verdict on Saturday after the girl confessed that she had a forced sexual intercourse
forced, i.e. rape.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.
Well she had the necessary four male witnesses required to prove rape in Saudi Arabia, but since they participated in the gang rape, I bet they were not willing to testify.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
They don't want to put the baby at risk by flogging her while pregnant.who will take the mother’s last name.
