You forgot "under Sharia a woman needs 2 male witnesses to confirm she was raped, and if it's just the word of the woman vs the word of the rapist, the rapist is believed"...
Under Iran's interpretation of Islamic Sharia law in force since its 1979 revolution, adultery is punished by the stoning of convicted adulterers.
Women are buried up to the their shoulders, but men only up to their waists. They are spared if they manage to free themselves before dying.
According to local media, MPs had removed stoning altogether from the bill that they adopted. But the hardline Guardians Council of clerics and jurists, which must approve all legislation before it enters into force, reinserted it, with the new amendment.
