Pregnant Sudanese Woman To Give Birth Before Being Killed For Christianity

Before 8-months-pregnant Meriam Yahya Ibrahim is given 100 lashes and then hanged to death, she will be allowed to give birth to her second child. For now, she is shackled inside a Sudan prison cell with her 20-month-old son. How awful.

Meriam Yahya Ibrahim, 27, was charged with both adultery and apostasy on May 15 when she refused to renounce her Christianity in a Sudan courtroom. Even though she is 8-months-pregnant, the judge sentenced her to a horrifying whipping punishment, followed by death. While Meriam awaits her heartbreaking fate, she is shackled at the ankles inside a tiny prison cell where she cares for her first child, a 20-month-old baby boy.

Pregnant Sudanese Woman Will Give Birth Before Being Killed

When Meriam’s sentence first made headlines, it sparked international outrage.

Meriam, who is 8-months-pregnant with her second child, faces 100 lashes and death by hanging solely because she was raised a Christian in a Muslim country. Part of her punishment is also because she married and bore a Christian man’s children.

As she awaits her death sentence, Meriam is currently living in a tiny Sudanese prison cell with her son, Martin. The court has declared that Meriam will be able to carry her second baby to term, give birth, and nurse the baby before she is whipped 100 times and then killed.

Meriam’s son is with her in prison only because he is considered a Muslim, which means his Christian father is not legally allowed to care for or raise him. Everything about this horrible situation is absolutely absurd.

Meriam’s Husband Desperate To Save Her

Daniel Wani, Meriam’s husband and the father of her children, was allowed to see his wife and son for the first time on Monday, May 19, since her sentencing.

That’s when he saw that she was shackled at the ankles inside her cell, and that her legs were swollen. According to Daniel, she could give birth at any time as she is due at June 1.

Daniel is devastated about his wife’s sentencing and requested that he be able to bring her to the Sudan hospital where she gave birth to their first child, but his request was denied.

“I’m so frustrated. I don’t know what to do,” Danile told CNN in a heartbreaking interview after his wife’s sentencing. “I’m just praying.”

Our thoughts and prayers are also with Meriam and her family, especially her unborn baby. Hopefully, government officials will step up and get involved and work to save Meriam and her son, Martin.

Any one who looks to this issue through a Muslim s eyes will understand that the sentence is justice because its heaven laws that is not an opinion of the judge .In Islam you are free to join any religion but once you chose Islam you are not allowed to change by another one the sentence of that is death penalty.Even if you change to Christianity-though any Muslim should believe in Guess and Bible .Thus Islam consider her marriage is illegal cohabitation
