Christian Woman Reveals Why She Risked Execution And Rejected Forced Conversion To Islam: ‘I Was Sure That God Would Stand by My Side’

Fox News’ Megyn Kelly sat down recently with Meriam Ibrahim, the Sudanese Christian woman who was arrested and sentenced to death for apostasy before fleeing to the United States this summer with her husband and two young children.

In a segment that aired Monday night, Ibrahim said that the U.S. embassy in Sudan initially ignored her appeals for help, turning her away at the beginning of her plight.

“In the beginning before I went to prison, [my husband] Daniel and I first went to the U.S. embassy,” she said. “The consul refused to speak to us and hear the details of the problem. She refused to deal with us and told us to go to the U.N.”

That said, she credited Jerry P. Lanier, a former ambassador to Uganda and a State Department official, with standing by her and ensuring she received the freedom she deserved.
