Sharia Law and Sex Workers
Women in Nigeria who the Red Cross had identified as sex workers (to help stop the spread of AIDS) are being rounded up under Sharia law (story here).

Obviously if there are women sex workers there are men involved as well, but it is the women being punished. Same thing happened at my Christian college - if a girl got pregnant she (not the guy) got kicked out. How do you react to stories like these? Where should morality lines be drawn?
