Thousands of signatures against abortion in Africa delivered at Theresa May’s office and British consulate in Kenya

- Africa Campaigns Manager Ann Kioko: “During her visit to the African continent, Theresa May offered £200 million to fund abortions, but forgot that this is a pro-life continent and that its priorities don’t include killing unborn children”.

London, 4. OCTOBER 2018.-This Thursday the international platform  CitizenGO has delivered thousands of signatures to the office of prime minister Theresa May in London as well as to the British consulate in Nairobi, Kenya, calling for May to withdraw her offer of £200 million to fund abortion in Kenya, Republic of South Africa and Nigeria.The gesture is widely seen as neocolonialist in those countries.

“Kenya needs funds to construct its train system, improve the sanitary sector and  healthcare for women or further education, but May’s help is largely to kill children who are yet to be born in Africa,” denouncesAnn Kioko, CitizenGO Campaigns Manager for the African continent.

“The majority of African countries have pro-life laws and consider that life starts at conception and needs to be defended, promoted and protected until natural death. For this reason, this type of help is another sign of UK’s neocolonialist attitude,” the CitizenGO Campaigns Manager warned.

The attempt to impose ideological perspectives on the continent could be seen during the meeting of Commonwealth state leaders which took place in London in April, where Theresa May asked African countries to review their laws regarding homosexuality in support of gay and lesbian ‘marriage’.

“The  £200 million which the prime minister wants to donate, is blood-stained money and this is why we ask the presidents of the Republic of South Africa, Nigeria and Kenya not to accept this gift, as it does nothing but result in the death of our children,” Ann Kioko concluded.
