Act in the case of Meriam Ibrahim in Sudan and her baby and toddler in prison.

I hope everyone here will consider signing this petition, if it gets 100,000 names by June 27th 2014, then the White House has to address it.

This is the case of that poor Sudanese woman that faces execution because she has refused to convert to Islam.  She is married to an American citizen and they are Christians.  Apparently, she went back to Sudan to get her brother to bring back to the US and that's when she was arrested and sentenced to death.  The petition is to force Obama to have to address this, hopefully, before it's too late for her.  You do have to sign up for an account with your name, email and zip code to sign the petition. 

She's only got 28,916 names so far - and needs 100,000 names by June 27th. 


WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:
Act in the case of Meriam Ibrahim in Sudan and her baby and toddler in prison.
We strongly urge the administration to take action in the case of Dr. Meriam Ibrahim, the Sudanese mother who with her toddler and newborn baby (who pending the proper documentation are American citizens) is languishing inside a prison in Khartoum. While Meriam awaits execution for the “crime” of converting to Christianity, her children are forced to be at her side in a prison that a 2008 U.N. document reported as having an infant mortality rate of one per day in the summer. No innocent child should be in this situation. We urge you to pressure the Sudanese government to release Meriam and her children so she can escape execution and possible death of her children and be rejoined with her husband in the U.S. Please grant her expedited safe haven in the U.S., where she could seek asylum.

SIGNATURES NEEDED BY JUNE 27, 2014 TO REACH GOAL OF 100,000 is 71,084.  TOTAL SIGNATURES ON THIS PETITION  = 28,916.

just 'cause the White House has to address it doesn't mean it has to do anything about it.

Maybe, if we're lucky, Michelle will do a hashtag campaign.  This is a glaring example of a real "War on Women".  If we're really lucky - Obama will hear about it on the news, and then get madder than hell about it!
