"I gave birth chained. Not cuffs - but chains on my legs. Something has happened to [my] baby." -Meriam Ibrahim

Meriam Ibrahim gives birth(Sudan) - Sudanese Christian Meriam Ibrahim, who was recently released from prison and is now being prevented from leaving the country, has given her first interview to The Guardian.

In the interview, Meriam states that her newborn daughter Mara is disabled because she was forced to give birth to her in prison while shackled. (Photo courtesy: citizengo.org)

"I gave birth chained," she said. "Not cuffs - but chains on my legs. I couldn't open my legs so the women had to lift me off the table. I wasn't lying on the table. Something has happened to [my] baby. I don't know in the future whether she'll need support to walk or not."

Of Meriam's struggle to get out of Sudan to America, Tony Perkins, president of the Family Research Council, said, "While Americans get ready to enjoy the long weekend, there's one family overseas wishing they could join the 4th of July celebration here in the US: Meriam Ibrahim, her husband Daniel and their two tiny children still wait in Khartoum for the green light to come to the states."

"Please join me," he added, "in lifting up Meriam, Daniel, Martin, and Maya in prayer - and continue to use your social media platforms to keep the pressure on US officials to act. Meriam can't afford for us to abandon her now."
