So, here's a story to get your brain on edge. It's a tad convoluted, so let me try to sum up the relevant points:
1) 20 year old British woman arrested in Laos allegedly carrying heroin.
2) Laotian law imposes death by firing squad for heroin smugglers.
3) Laotian law forbids executing pregnant women.
4) 20 year old British woman is pregnant at the time of the arrest.
5) Prison guards allegedly beat the woman into a miscarriage.
6) Woman is sentenced to death by firing squad without adequate council.
7) Woman is raped by prison guards and becomes pregnant.
8) Execution is postponed for 9 months.
