ACOG Statement for Dr Ibrahim

ACOG urges President Obama to take quick and decisive action to free Dr. Meriam Yehya Ibrahim, a pregnant doctor who has been sentenced to be hanged in Sudan.  Dr. Ibrahim is in prison with little access to needed health care, convicted of adultery and apostasy for marrying a non-Muslim man. ACOG stands with other international Ob-Gyn Societies that have taken similar action in their own countries.
