23 / 07 / 2010 - Precious Life unite with more than 170 Leaders from 21 Countries to Sign Kenya Pro-Life Petition
Director of Precious Life, Bernadette Smyth has united with more than 170 pro-life and pro-family leaders to sign a Pro-Life Petition opposing abortion in Kenya.
With just two weeks to go until Kenyans vote on a new Constitution, World Congress of Families Managing Director Larry Jacobs announced the conclusion of a successful petition drive, "In Support Of The 'No' Campaign - Kenyans Opposed To The Pro-Abortion Constitution."
In less than a week, the Congress gathered signatures from more than 170 pro-life and pro-family leaders in 21 countries. Signers include former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, Former Boston Mayor and Vatican Ambassador Ray Flynn and Former House Majority Leader Tom DeLay, as well as current or former members of the parliaments of Britain, Australia and the European Union, and the Congresses of Poland and the Philippines.
Jacobs observed: "Kenyans are literally fighting for the hope and future of their nation - the lives of unborn children. The Constitution, which will be voted on by Kenyans on August 4, includes language which overturns current Kenyan law prohibiting abortion except to save the mother's life. It would allow abortion when the mother's 'health' is affected by a continuation of pregnancy.
"The World Health Organization (WHO) defines 'health' to include 'complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.' Thus, Section 26 of the proposed Constitution sets up a mechanism for unrestricted abortion on demand at any time during pregnancy," he said.
Africa has been targeted by international population control groups for legalized abortion despite a 47% drop in Kenyan fertility and projections that show a declining population in the next 50 years.
In recent days the Obama administration has been accused by a group of U.S. congressmen of spending over $23 million to promote the pro-abortion Constitution.
Jacobs urged Kenyans to "carefully consider the consequences of this fatal move, which could be the first step on a road the West has followed, leading to one-quarter of all pregnancies in the U.S. ending in abortion."
"Once again, the legacy of Margaret Sanger and Planned Parenthood is revealed with their racist agenda to eliminate black Africans," said Jacobs. He pointed to the history of 21st Century black genocide from abortion as chronicled in the documentary movie, Maafa21.
