Worldwide Campaign to stop the Abuse and Torture of Mind Control/DEWs
In light of the #VA scandal... When it comes to war, would it be too far fetched, "...to limit the horror of war upon and between professional soldiers only?" When our vets return from war why is it like pullin' teeth without novocaine to get health care? It ought to be as automatic as the process of re-introducing astronauts into the Earth's atmosphere. But back to war--
That thing they call 'collateral damage' might be just an excuse for the folks who engage in distasteful war (for profit), allowing for them to deflect from their laziness, right? I came across this link when looking for the legal definition of crimes against humanity. You may also find of interest the definitions of:
* Forced pregnancy
* Enforced disappearance of persons
...and a few others. This is the unfortunate SIGN OF OUR TIMES people. We've got a lot of work ahead of us. ~djg
Forced pregnancy, torture, and disappearance of persons has been around forever, if you believe in it, the bible will tell you this. The current difference is that those who have dominating tendencies have ovrrseen the development of the most powerful tool so far devised in human history. We will need to be much more creative than we currently are if we are to succeed.
New International Version (NIV)
5 If brothers are living together and one of them dies without a son, his widow must not marry outside the family. Her husband’s brother shall take her and marry her and fulfill the duty of a brother-in-law to her. 6 The first son she bears shall carry on the name of the dead brother so that his name will not be blotted out from Israel.
7 However, if a man does not want to marry his brother’s wife, she shall go to the elders at the town gate and say, “My husband’s brother refuses to carry on his brother’s name inIsrael. He will not fulfill the duty of a brother-in-law to me.” 8 Then the elders of his town shall summon him and talk to him. If he persists in saying, “I do not want to marry her,” 9 his brother’s widow shall go up to him in the presence of the elders, take off one of his sandals, spit in his face and say, “This is what is done to the man who will not build up his brother’s family line.” 10 That man’s line shall be known in Israel as The Family of the Unsandaled.
The above scripture describes ancient enforced preganancy by the Hebrew men in the name of their god. Notice that there is a prescribed manor for the male to avoid the situation, but no such option is offered to the female.
What is the relationship between stoning and human rights?
Stoning is a grave and serious violation of International Human Rights Law. Stoning breeches the International Convention of Civil and Political Rights (1966), to which Iran, Afghanistan, Iraq, Nigeria, and the Sudan are party signatories. Article 6 of the ICCPR states that “in countries which have not abolished the death penalty, sentence of death may be imposed only for the most serious crimes”, of which adultery is not one. Article 7 of the ICCPR states that "No one shall be subjected to torture or to cruel, inhuman or degrading treatment or punishment." This last injunction is the content of a whole Convention: the Convention Against Torture and Other Cruel, Inhuman, or Degrading Treatment or Punishment (1987), which is widely considered to have reached the level of customary law due to its strong international acceptance by more than fifty nations, including many Muslim nations.
What is the relationship between stoning and women’s rights?
Women are far more likely to become victims of stoning. For example, of the ten cases of individuals awaiting punishment by stoning in Iran, nine are women. Similarly, all but one of those sentenced to stoning in Nigeria were women. Even though there is no article in law that mandates punishment by stoning exclusively for women, misogynist and discriminatory practices, interpretations and policies, make women far more likely than men to be found guilty of “adultery." In the Iranian Penal Code, a married woman has no right to divorce, a privilege which is reserved for the husband. Women have no custody rights of their children after age seven; as a result, women who can obtain a divorce by proving their husbands are either abusive or an addict, choose not to do so fearing the loss of their children. A man can marry up to four wives simultaneously, and may establish a sexual relationship with any other single woman through a temporary marriage without the requirements of marriage registration, ceremony, or obligation to any possible child that may result. In addition, a woman is legally obliged to submit to her husband’s sexual demands and do her best to satisfy him sexually. Hence if a man is sexually unsatisfied or in an unhappy relationship, he has many avenues open to him to dissolve the marriage and/or satisfy his sexual needs in a temporary “marriage.” However, these legal options are denied to Iranian women, and a woman seeking alternative intimate relationships is, in the eyes of the law, “committing adultery.” In Nigeria prior to 2003, the assumption that non-marital pregnancy is prima facie evidence of adultery by the women, without requiring any other form of evidence, was also discriminatory against women, since male partners were acquitted by simply taking oath that they were not guilty. Many similar discriminatory laws and regulations exist in other countries and communities where stoning is still practiced
Here is a link to all the reasons bible believers had to torture to death others by stoning.

There are much more countries that use stoning as a form of capital punishment example Saudi Arabia http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Stoning
