Petition to: UN High Commissioner for Human Rights
Be a voice for Personhood, sign a petition to defend Meriam Ibrahim and her unborn baby from their unjust death sentence.
The Sudanese Government has sentenced Meriam Ibrahim -- a 27 year old Sudanese Christian, wife, mother of a small child, and eight months pregnant with her second child -- to receive a death sentence for professing her Christian faith.
Meriam who was born Muslim, and later converted to Christianity, has been sentenced by a Sudanese court to 100 lashes, and death by hanging. The Sudanese government claims that Meriam is guilty of apostasy (for her conversion to Christianity) and adultery (because the government refuses to recognize her marriage to her Christian husband.)
The government has mandated Meriam’s 20 month old son to be imprisoned with her, so he can “not be further indoctrinated to a Christian lifestyle by Meriam’s husband.”
Not only will the Sudanese Government be responsible for the death of Merriam, but also the child she is carrying. Not to mention, what will become of her 20 month old son? Sudan has no intention of allowing him to live with his father.
We must defend Meriam, her unborn baby, and her son -- be a voice for Personhood.
When you sign this petition, we will send an e-mail message to Navi Pillay, UN High Commissioner and the President of Sudan Omar al-Bashir with the petition text.
