THE UN SUMMIT AIMS TO PROMOTE ABORTION IN AFRICA


 

-CitizenGO Campaigns Editor Luis Losada: “ pro-life groups like CitizenGO have been banned from attending! Our input at the official meeting is being restricted because organizers see us as a threat to their radical agenda”.


NAIROBI, KENYA. MONDAY NOVEMBER 11TH, 2019.- Tomorrow begins the International Conference on Population and Development (ICPD25) in Nairobi, called in by the United Nations, and the international platform CitizenGO is actively campaigning to have Kenya’s  President Uhuru Kenyatta to remove support for this summit as its public goals are to promote abortion in Africa, blackmailing its nations with economic support if they do. The summit will take place between November 12-14.


“The agenda of this conference does not represent the spirit of African culture, which is predominantly pro-life, and the Constitution of Kenya, which declares life begins at conception and unborn babies deserve the right to life. Africans are being blackmailed: if you want development aid, you have to embrace abortion”, says CitizenGO Campaigns Editor Luis Losada, leading a team of campaigners in the Kenyan capital and a group of concerned CitizenGOers. 


“Pro-life groups like CitizenGO have been banned from attending! Our input at the official meeting is being restricted because organizers see us as a threat to their radical agenda”, added Losada. 


UNFPA has unsuccessfully partnered with international pro-abortion groups such as International Planned Parenthood Federation, Marie Stopes, Rutgers, and IPAS to fund pro-abortion activities and the push for Comprehensive Sexuality Education in countries like Kenya, Uganda, Ghana, Malawi, and Nigeria. “This conference in Nairobi will be the epitome of their efforts to force their destructive agenda on Africa”, commented the spokesman from CitizenGO.


Signatures delivered at Kenyan President’s office

Prior to the start of ICPD 25, the CitizenGO campaigns Director for Africa, Ann Kioko, is delivering today over 87,000 signatures at the office of President Uhuru Kenyatta, from CitizenGoers all over Africa, the Americas (including Brazil), several European countries and all over the world, under the slogan “ICPD does not represent me”. Joining her tomorrow will be Luis Losada, for the start of the ICPD 25. They will participate together in a few events around this summit and join the march to be held at Nairobi CBD on Thursday to protest the summit.
