The 8 months pregnant Sudanese woman who has been condemned for her Christian faith is currently locked in a prison cell with her precious son, Martin. Meriam Yahya Ibrahim will be hanged for her religion after she gives birth. So sad.

Meriam Yahya Ibrahim, 27, is living in a Sudanese prison where she is expected to give birth to her second child on or before June 1. Until then, her 20-month-old son, Martin Wani, must live inside the prison cell with her and the new baby when it arrives. In the meantime, Meriam’s husband, Daniel Wani, is desperately fighting for their freedom.

We thought that Meriam’s story could not get any worse, but it has.

It turns out that while a very pregnant Meriam awaits her death sentence in prison, her precious little boy has been forced to live inside her prison cell with her. Meriam will also have to care for her unborn baby in that cell once it is born.

Reports claim that the Sudanese government will not allow Martin’s father  to care for him while Meriam is in prison solely because he is both a Christian and an American citizen.

Meriam is currently in prison because she refused to renounce her Christianity in front of a Sudanese court. Because she was born in Sudan and is therefore  automatically considered a Muslim by their government, they have condemned her for committing apostasy.

Since Sudan sees her only as a Muslim, they refuse to acknowledge her marriage to a Christian man. Therefore, the court was also able to charge Meriam with adultery.

Meriam has been sentenced to 100 lashes for adultery, but will ultimately be killed when she is hanged for committing apostasy. The court has allowed her time to birth and nurse her baby before she will be killed.

Meriam Is Not Receiving Proper Medical Attention

As soon as he heard that his wife was in prison and facing death, Daniel hopped a plane from his New Hampshire home and flew back to his homeland of Sudan.

Even though Meriam was sentenced on May 15, her husband was not allowed to visit with her until May 20.

After his visit, Daniel claimed that his wife was shackled to the floor inside her cell, and that the shackles were causing her ankles to bleed.

Daniel also mentioned that Meriam’s legs are swollen, and he fears she is not receiving the proper medical treatment she needs.

If this is the case, when Meriam goes into labor with her unborn baby, it could prove to be fatal.

We will continue to keep our thoughts and prayers with Meriam and her family, especially her little boy who is living alongside her inside a prison cell.
