Worldwide outrage continues in the case of a woman on death row in Sudan for refusing to renounce her Christian faith. This week, Meriam Ibrahim gave premature birth in prison to a daughter. Ibrahim was convicted of apostasy and sentenced to execution after a Sudanese court ruled that her marriage to Daniel Wani, a Christian, was invalid. Ibrahim’s father was a Muslim, but she was raised in the Christian faith of her mother. In Sudan, children must belong to the religion of their fathers, and women are forbidden from marrying outside their faith. Daniel Wani is a naturalized US citizen and has been trying to get citizenship for his wife. Religious freedom advocates have launched a petition drive urging the Obama administration to intervene.
