Something You Can Do

Asia Bibi was arrested on June 19, 2009.

On November 8, 2010 she was given a death sentence.

Her crime?

Asai is charged with blasphemy after a discussion with fellow co-workers  who were pressuring her to covert from Christianity to Islam. (Read more of the story here).

Asia's attorneys filed an appeal. If the appeal is rejected she will be the first woman to lawfully be executed under Pakistan's blasphemy laws.

So what can you do?

Sometimes when you hear stories like this, you feel helpless...

But sometimes, there is something you can do.

Go to A Call for Mercy to join with thousands across the world and sign a petition which will be presented to the Pakistan Embassy in Washington DC.

Sign the petition today, it could make a difference.
