Betuel is a brave young woman who was born in Germany of Turkish parents, and decided to leave Islam when she was nineteen. Her case is reminiscent of Rifqa Bary’s, except that Betuel waited until she attained her majority before notifying her parents of her decision.

Betuel tells her story in this video:
Later on today there will be a rally in support of Rifqa Bary next to the courthouse in Ohio where her case will be heard:
