This is not only true, but this campaign is already changing things. International pressure from activists (like Larry in this case) is upholding the death sentence against Amina. You'll find more information on this at the Amnisty International site: http://www.amnesty.org.uk/urgentappeal/ (in Spanish, http://www.amnistiapornigeria.org/).
And please visit the AI site every now and then.
Now sorry about the OT information, but I just couldn't resist.

I almost always ignore emails like this - sorry -
mostly because so many of them that I have responded
to over the years were either hoaxes or years old, but
this one was easy to check out. I just followed the
link to www.oprah.com, and felt compelled to send the
letter in my name as well. This one sounds true, and
it's truly disturbing. Will our emails REALLY stop
this woman from being stoned to death for having a
woman out of wedlock? Doubtful. But what the hell does
it cost to try, huh? Please check it out! -Larry S.
