Jailed Christian convert on hunger strike to protest denial of medical attention

Please help free a Christian convert sentenced to 4 years in jail isMaryam Naghash Zargaran is an Iranian woman who converted to Christianity which is a crime in Iran. In fact, she was sentenced to 4 years in jail for “propagating against the Islamic regime and collusion intended to harm national security”. As if this were not a big enough test to her new-found faith, she also suffers severe health problems which are getting worse in prison. Zargaran is now on hunger strike in protest of being ordered by Evin prison’s warden to return prematurely from being treated in the hospital for her medical conditions.

Here’s a link to a petition to free Zargaran –  https://www.gopetition.com/petitions/iran-critical-condition-of-the-imprisoned-christian-convert-maryam-naghash-zargaran.html
