Pregnant Christian Woman Sentenced To Death For Her Faith, In Sudan - The Latest In Christian Persecution

By Susan Duclos

The persecution of Christians around the globe is not only continuing but is increasing with the latest story of a 27 year-old pregnant Christian woman in Sudan has just been sentenced to 100 lashes AND death by hanging for renouncing Islam, according to CNN.

Meriam Yehya Ibrahim, was convicted by a Khartoum court this week of apostasy, or the renunciation of faith and adultery for marrying a Christian man.

"The verdict is contrary to commitments Sudan has made in its own Constitution and commitments made under regional and international law; Meriam has been convicted solely on account of her religious convictions and personal status," said Katherine Perks with the African Centre for Justice and Peace Studies. 

"The fact that a woman could be sentenced to death for her religious choice, and to flogging for being married to a man of an allegedly different religion, is abhorrent and should never be even considered," Manar Idriss, Amnesty International's Sudan researcher, said in a statement.
