Blasphemy accused 50-year-old, Pakistani Christian woman Asia Bibi in need of urgent medical treatment.

According to, Bruce Allen of Forgotten Missionaries International: “She’s suffering from internal bleeding. She requires urgent medical treatment. She vomits blood. She suffers terrible pain, and she can hardly eat. Here’s this woman, languishing in a prison under this death sentence for a crime that she vehemently denies.”
“But time is running out for the Christian woman since her health has been steadily declining,” Allen said.
Furthermore, the Global Dispatch reported that,”Asia Bibi is suffering from intestinal bleeding.” It was reported that when her family visited her at the end of May, they dismally found that she was “so weak she can hardly walk”.
Another source revealed that, “When vomiting there is also shown traces of blood, Asia has difficulty feeding properly, while constant pain in the chest. Therefore, it is necessary that Asia Bibi be submitted as soon as possible a full medical check-up, including blood work.”
