Representative Franks and Others Around the World “Adopt” Pastor Saeed

Last week, one of the strongest supporters of American Pastor Saeed Abedini in Congress, Representative Trent Franks (AZ-8), once again spoke out for the imprisoned pastor on the House floor.

Representative Franks is one of a number of Members of Congress who has “adopted” Pastor Saeed through the bipartisan Defending Freedoms Project.  This is a similar effort to one we told you about last month on a global scale to have world leaders and elected officials “adopt” a prisoner of conscience.

Pastor Saeed – a U.S. citizen – has been illegally imprisoned in Iran for his Christian faith for over 300 days apart from his wife and two young children.

As Representative Franks noted, “Pastor Abedini’s case is a demonstration to the world of the far-reaching implications of even a single instance of human rights abuse.”

The world is taking notice. In just the last few months we have seen two more significant actions from world nations demanding that Pastor Saeed be released.

Recently, during Canada’s “Iran Accountability Week,” Member of Parliament David Sweet spoke before the House of Commons, urging Pastor Saeed’s release. Likewise, Australia formally passed a motion calling for Pastor Saeed’s release last month.

These recent actions and Iran’s recent steps to provide Pastor Saeed much needed medical care are renewed confirmation of the powerful effect people are having on Pastor Saeed’s case. Continue to pray, share his story, and sign the petition for his release at SaveSaeed.org.

Thank you, Representative Trent Franks! We will keep you in our prayers, as you stand up and give our brother a VOICE!
