2014-05-27 Mariam Yehya Ibrahim
I receive periodic updates from change.org, regarding causes that might be of interest to me. One recent petition has touched a particular nerve, so I’ve chosen to share it here, in the hopes that others will sign. A young woman by the name of Mariam Yehya Ibrahim has been sentenced to flogging and death by the government of Sudan, for converting to Christianity, and for marrying a Christian man from South Sudan. Mariam was pregnant when imprisoned, and has recently given birth to her child, who is also being held in the prison. If you find this situation as abhorrent as I do, I hope you’ll add your name to the petition.
