Pro-Life Group Will Honor Meriam Ibrahim, Sentenced to Death for Her Christian Faith

by Steven Ertelt | Washington, DC | LifeNews.com

A pro-life group will honor Meriam Ibrahim, a Christian woman whose faith resulted in a Sudanese court almost putting her to death. The young woman was condemned to be executed while she was pregnant with an unborn child, who was subsequently born while she remained in prison.

Meriam Ibraham, the pregnant Christian woman jailed and sentenced to be flogged and hanged for her Christian faith, was eventually forced to give birth in chains in a Sudanese prison as she awaited a death sentence ad brutal flogging by Muslim officials.

“Meriam’s bold stand for Jesus Christ as she faced death has touched the hearts of people in every nation. Her incredible example of courage should inspire Christians in America to be bold and courageous in their faith as we witness growing religious hostility here in our country.”

“Meriam honored God by standing strong in her faith despite imprisonment and a death sentence. Our hope and prayer is that Meriam’s story will be shared as an encouragement to the thousands of Meriams who are looking toward America, hoping they are not forgotten and that someone will speak out on their behalf,” concluded Perkins.

Statement on State Licensing Complaints against Four Indiana Abortion Doctors

INDIANAPOLIS – Indiana Attorney General Greg Zoeller’s office announced that the state has lodged complaints with the Indiana Medical Licensing Board over legal violations allegedly committed by four Indiana abortion doctors. The announcement states that the violations relate to abortion record keeping and advice and consent laws. The doctors are Ulrich Klopfer, who runs abortion facilities in Lake, St. Joseph and Allen Counties, and Resad Pasic, Kathleen Glover and Raymond Robinson, all of Marion County. Indiana Right to Life President and CEO Mike Fichter released the following statement:

“We commend the Attorney General for taking this necessary step to uphold Indiana law. Our legislators passed laws regarding consent and record keeping to ensure high standards of quality and care for Hoosier women. We’re disappointed that these abortion doctors apparently did not willingly comply with Indiana law. We hope the Medical Licensing Board immediately schedules hearings. If found guilty, we believe the abortion doctors should be fined and their licenses to practice in Indiana should be revoked.”

Indiana Right to Life’s mission is to protect the right to life, especially of unborn children, through positive education, compassionate advocacy and promotion of healthy alternatives to abortion.

SWITZERLAND: Exit, a Swiss assisted suicide organization, reported last week an increased growth in its membership this summer. According to the group’s vice president, a record number of new applicant requests (between 60-100 daily) came in this July and August. Exit’s membership stands at about 75,000. Of those, 459 ended their lives last year with the organization which provides the lethal drugs …

Switzerland legalized assisted suicide in 1942. Last May, Exit amended its policy to “assist” not only the terminally ill but also elderly people regardless of their state of health.

AUSTRALIA: Another prescribed death organization, Exit International, has come under fire. Its founder, international euthanasia activist Dr. Philip Nitschke, lost his medical license after admitting he helped a non-terminally-ill 45-year-old man commit suicide. He plans to appeal his suspension, maintaining his work does not constitute “medical practice.”

GREAT BRITAIN: Great Britain has been considering Lord Falconer’s Assisted Dying Bill to legalize assisted suicide for mentally competent adults with a 6-month-or-less life expectancy. The debate garnered an equal split between advocates and opponents during debate this summer. The bill goes to committee, likely this fall.


On Monday, a judge ruled that late-term abortionist Martin Haskell had to close his abortion clinic for good. Haskell was given five days to appeal the judge’s ruling. Operation Rescue has revealed that Haskell’s attorneys have decided not to file an appeal, meaning that the clinic will close permanently, with surgical abortions to end tomorrow.
