Christian attorneys working closely on the Asia Bibi case are hopeful the Pakistani mother will soon be rescued from the death penalty for alleged blasphemy.
"She's just a normal person in Pakistan subjected to this harsh punishment in an absurd manner," says attorney Matthew Clark of the American Center for Law and Justice.
Clark and the ACLJ have been working since 2009 to free the wife and mother of five after she was jailed for blasphemy against Islam.
Imprisonment has taken years from Bibi's life, Clark says, "and we're fighting to make sure that the rest of her life is not taken away."
OneNewsNow reported last week that Bibi's case has worked its way to the Supreme Court, where there is less influence from Islamic radicals and thus a better chance for a fair hearing.
"So many people haven't heard about her story and it helps because it really does make an impact," advises the ACLJ attorney. "It wouldn't even be before the Supreme Court of Pakistan were it not for people being willing to raise their voice and speak out."
The Pakistani high court is set to hear Bib's appeal in the case in coming weeks.
