Sudanese Woman Sentenced to Death Won’t Renounce Christianity

May 19, 2014

A pregnant Sudanese woman is in jail awaiting execution, and her son is taken from her husband.  Her crimes: being Christian and having sex with her Christian husband.  

“Ibrahim was charged after being reported to authorities last year by a member of her family because of her marriage to a Christian, according to her supporters. In February, the court added a charge of apostasy based on her 2012 marriage in a Christian church and the fact that she insisted in court that she was Christian.”

Here’s the story on the LA Times.

Here’s a related opinion piece on Time‘s website.
