Asia Bibi: Sentenced to Death for Her Faith in Christ. Help Free Her Now.

Our Christ sacrificed His life on the cross for our sins. ... Our Christ is alive.

Asia Bibi, a Pakistani wife and mother, used these words to defend her faith against mocking co-workers who tried to make her convert to Islam. She was later convicted of blasphemy and sentenced to death.

In Pakistan, more than 150,000 Christians have signed a petition demanding justice for persecution victims, including Asia Bibi. She is the first Pakistani woman to be sentenced to death for her Christian faith. Now you can join with The Voice of the Martyrs and our Pakistani brothers and sisters in a call for mercy. VOM hopes to gather 1 million signatures on behalf of our sister Asia, who now sits in prison awaiting the Lahore High Court's ruling on her appeal. These petitions will be delivered to the Pakistani embassy in Washington D.C.

Every signature is a call for mercy.  Sign the petition at CallForMercy.com.
