Save American Pastor Abedini's life by getting him released Iran's prison!

September 2012 Christian Pastor Saeed Abedini, an American, was imprisoned after visiting family in Iran for simply exercising freedom of religion: Christianity.  At prison he has already been beaten, threatened at knife point by other prisoners, malnourished, denied medical care and the risk to his life increases the longer he is there!

US citizen, Pastor Saeed Abedini is in prison in Iran for exercising his Christian faith. He committed no crime!! Take every diplomatic action necessary, as the danger to his life increases longer he is detained. He has already been tortured and abused by authorities, fellow prisoners etc. A blogger died within 1 month at the same prison 11/12. We ask you to specifically request Iran to immediately release Saeed home to the US, thus following through on their own proclaimed commitment to increase religious tolerance and by following their own constitution. Please ask all of Iran's partners to make this same request for immediate return to the US.
