Meriam, born in Sudan, raised in a Christian home.   She married a Christian man from South Sudan, and they have one baby, she is 8 months pregnant with her second.  

Because she was born in Sudan, by Sharia Law she is Muslim.   By marrying a Christian man Sudan does not recognise the marriage, and has for that  she has been convicted of adultery, and will receive 100 lashes.

Because she is refusing to denounce her Christianity and convert to Islam, she has been convicted of apostasy, and will be hanged.  They are going to kill her after her baby is born.

There are countless reasons that no one should be OK with this.   This is NOT OK.  We need to raise the collective voice of the people and tell Sudan that we will not let this happen.
