A judge in Sudan has sentenced Meriam Ibrahim to be tortured and executed.
Her only crime? Her Christian faith.
Born to a Christian mother and a Muslim father who abandoned her, Meriam was raised Christian, but the government of Sudan does not recognize her faith.
To Sudan, she is Muslim because her father was Muslim. Her Christianity makes her an apostate, a criminal.
The Sudanese judge gave her three days to recant her faith – to reject her Christian beliefs. She refused.
Meriam is pregnant, and her husband is an American citizen. After she gives birth, Sudan will punish her with 100 lashes, then kill her.
Time is of the essence. Add your name to the letter we’ll deliver to the government of Sudan. Be Heard for Meriam.
