Now, it appears as if Shourd will be released on $500,000 bail - which is far from the amnesty that was promised in the past. However, she is in need of medical attention and not being released will certainly guarantee grave illness, or even death. Reports indicate that she has found a lump on her breast.
She also has precancerous changes in her cervix that have gone untreated. Getting swift treatment ensures that she will have a complete recovery - and possibly have the ability to have children.
As for the other two Iran prisoners, the issue is sensitive and authorities aren't speaking. However, we are happy that Shourd appears to be able to be released.
