New mother sentenced to die

That moment when you hold you baby in your arms for the very first time is so inexplicably beautiful… elation, joy, hope.

Meriam Ibrahim gave birth to her baby girl today. And that means her time is running out.

After four months shackled to the floor of her prison cell, Meriam is sentenced to hang. Her crime? Marrying a Christian man.

As a mother, my eyes instantly filled with tears as I read this article and I couldn’t rest until I did something… anything!

I’ve signed Amnesty International’s petition and I urge you, as a parent, to do the same. No mother should be taken from her child. And no mother should have to give birth in fear.

Bad things happen when good people do nothing.
