Apostasy woman in Sudan sentenced to death forced to give birth ‘with her legs chained’

Meriam Yahya Ibrahim has been sentenced to death in Sudan for “apostasy” (renunciation of one’s religion) because, even though she was raised and is a practicing Christian, local law considers her a Muslim because her father was. She was also sentenced to be lashed 100 times for having “illegitimate sexual relations” with her American husband, Daniel Wadi, another Christian whose marriage to Meriam is not recognized by Sudanese Sharia law.
