Five people are in prison in Iran awaiting blinding with acid as punishment as the regime struggles to find a doctor to perform the procedure.
Yes of course, as any doctor who performs this barbaric act will go against their Hippocratic Oath.

Iran has a law of retribution called qisas, under which punishments are designed to match the crime that was perpetrated. In cases where criminals have blinded people by throwing acid into their faces, the Iranian regime metes out the same fate to the criminal.
I could not care less what religious laws they practice, but this inhumane act is against all that Human Rights stand for. And people please don't post: "I don't live their, so it's not my worry" as seen on many posts of late.....www.clarionproject.org...

If you throw acid on some1 you deserve the same treatment, period. I agree with Iran on this one, it makes people think twice before comitting barbaric acts.

Can't say i totally disagree with this one.

If you throw acid on someones face then you have whats coming to you.

Yeah, considering these guys did a barbaric thing to someone, I am not sure how much I care about their feelings.

Count me as a supporter of this type policy.

So many people whine about crime in this country. I'd dare say that things would be drastically different (in a positive way) if we also had these type laws.

Yeah, I swing to both sides of this argument. For something like this I am pro eye for an eye. But for people with drug addictions who do something stupid I am pro treatment. Just depends.

If you rape someone, hey I'm sure we can facilitate that. If you throw acid on someones face I'm almost 100% positive we can have that facilitate as well. Might give the real psychos in our society a productive way out of being serial killers.

Win wins in my book.

Give 3 doctors cups, 2 filled with acid and 1 with water.

Throw them in the face at the same time on 3.

Done.

There's a famous story about Al Sa'ud, the founder of the ruling family of Saudi Arabia.

It goes something like this. A guy was picking dates up in a huge date palm tree, first thing in the morning. He slipped and fell, and landed on another man who happened to be walking to work, killing the commuter but leaving the date-picker unharmed.

The widow of the dead man could either have money, or an eye-for-an-eye type judgment. At the time, people always took the money. But this woman refused the money and demanded that the datepicker be executed.

So Al Sa-ud had his soldiers get are rope and haul her up the date tree, and then he was going to march the date-picker blindfolded under the tree. The widow hesitated, and said she wasn't sure she was agile enough to hit the man, and land squarely on him. Al Sa'ud said it was OK: that if she missed, they'd hoist her up and she could jump again and again until she killed the guy.

She agreed to take the money instead.

Well if I was a doctor I would prefer to perform the surgery rather than have a crazy

As much as we find it abhorrent, for better or worse its their law, its their decision

Break the law of the land and suffer the justice of the country you are in

Surprisingly I dont have a problem with that.

Human rights? Only in those country's that honor that protocol, I would suggest blinding a person who blinded you is a human right in Iran

Thats the thing that people dont seem to consider.
Innocents abused and the perpetrator is given human rights when their actions are inhumane.

The clerics/govt maybe don't, but ALL doctors in the world swear to the same Hippocratic Oath.

What a terrible situation altogether.

As far as ATS'ers who find a need for judging others, does anyone remember the phrase that had something to do with "cast the first stone.." Just wondering.

"Cast the first stone"
Wasnt that Christs words, wasnt that about a woman being convicted of adultery?
Should we follow all Christs words, I whole heartedly agree, in every context, though some dont even think He existed.

Should we make Iran follow those teachings and how, kill those who dont?
I am not judging anyone, I am just mature enough to accept other cultures have a different philosophy, not much I can do about it either, I am not the worlds dictator.

As for "Cast the first stone", you will need to understand the context of the statement, very silly just picking and choosing what you want to from the bible.
