Grant Clemency for Pastor Saeed and Send Him Home.
A Letter from Jordan Sekulow:
I have just returned from leading an ACLJ diplomatic team to the Middle East for Pastor Saeed, the American pastor imprisoned in Iran.
He is out of prison for now, in an Iranian hospital. He's suffering from internal injuries from prison beatings. He needs surgery, and he needs your voice more than ever.
In my meetings, it was clear: Your call for clemency - for Pastor Saeed's humanitarian release - is making an impact.
We cannot forget Pastor Saeed. Because of you, he is being treated in a hospital rather than being left to suffer in prison; but we need more than treatment, we need his release. This U.S. citizen needs to return to his wife and children in the United States.
ACLJ Executive Director
"American Pastor Saeed Abedini remains in a hospital room instead of a prison cell. As we reported in mid-March, Pastor Saeed was taken from Rajai Shahr Prison to a hospital where he has received and continues to receive medication.
"Family members reported that a physician actually examined him yesterday. He is still suffering from internal injuries he received in prison.
"There's no word on how long Pastor Saeed will remain hospitalized. Family members who were able to visit with him this weekend said it's clear the time he has spent in the hospital is a significant improvement over how he was being treated in prison.
"According to his family, he is receiving meals and medicine - but the much-needed surgery to address internal injuries has not yet occurred."
