Meriam Ibrahim, the Sudanese woman who faced a death sentence for refusing to convert to Islam, said she relied on her Christian faith throughout her ordeal.

In an interview on Fox News Channel's "The Kelly File," Ibrahim said she refused to recant her faith even if it meant death.


"Faith means life. If you don't have any faith, you are not alive," Ibrahim said. "It's my right to follow the religion of my choice. I am not the only one suffering from this problem. There are many Meriams in Sudan and throughout the world." After Sudan's Islamic regime sentenced the pregnant Ibrahim to death for apostasy, she was forced give birth to a baby girl while shackled in prison.

Sign the petition to help change Sudan's oppressive apostasy laws.

"I was supposed to give birth at a hospital outside of prison, but they denied that request as well," she said. "When it was time to give birth, they refused to remove the chains from my ankles. So I had to give birth with chains on my ankles."

Ibrahim was eventually freed after an international outcry, but then Sudan blocked her from leaving the country even after its highest court overturned her death sentence in June.

She and her family then took refuge at the U.S. Embassy in Khartoum.

In August, she and her family finally arrived in the United States. They stopped in Philadelphia before joining her in-laws at their home in New Hampshire.

"She is tremendously strong...her faith gives her almost a certain aura about her," Philadelphia Mayor Michael Nutter told CBN News.

"The ordeal that she and her family had been through and to come to this city of faith... I talked about William Penn and the founding of Philadelphia... on the tenants of religious freedom and tolerance and openness and the ability to practice your faith, and both of them smiled," he said.

Ibrahim's husband thanked members of Congress, human rights groups, and other diplomats and lawyers who helped free his wife. Are you ready to stand with Ibrahim and to help free the people of Sudan from religious oppression?

Click here to sign the petition: "END APOSTASY LAWS IN SUDAN"

The petition states:

I stand with Hardwired because:


  • No one should be forced to recant their faith or be put to death.

  • No one should be subjected to torture or degrading treatment for their faith.

  • Every parent deserves the right to raise their child in the faith of their choice.

  • No child should be imprisoned for their faith.

  • I want apostasy laws abolished in the 20 countries where they exist, beginning in Sudan, and this means that we must continue to support all those risking their lives to challenge this law in Sudan.

  • No one is safe in Sudan until the President adopts a constitution that respects religious freedom - including the freedom to choose what to believe and how to express those beliefs - and amends the national laws to make it consistent with human rights.

Enough is enough, President Bashir. Stop the war on women and stop oppressing people for what they believe.
