UNFAP SUMMIT IN NAIROBI TO PROMOTE ABORTION



-Luis Losada: "The demands of true development are deploying infrastructures, universal access to quality healthcare, universal education, drinking water and the chance of getting a job".


NAIROBI, KENYA, NOVEMBER 13TH, 2019.- The International platform CitizenGO has compiled over 100,000 signatures in an online campaign in which they demand from Kenya's President, Uhuru Kenyatta not to back the pro-abortion summit ICPD25, sponsored by the United Nations. This event takes place 25 years after a similar meeting in Cairo, which also had the objective of depenalisation of abortion in African countries. 


The petition had a partial success as upon receiving the signatures, President Kenyatta warned the summit that he would not "accept impositions on homosexuality and other foreign ideologies in Kenya, in line with the framework of our constitution, national social-cultural values and ethos".


Protests around the event

CitizenGO has led several events to raise awareness around ICPD25, like the screening of the movie Unplanned, narrating the story of former Planned Parenthood employee Abby Johnson, who is today a pro-life activist. Also, the Campaigns Editor of CitizenGO Luis Losada has come to the capital of Kenya to speak at a conference about the work the platform does in defense of Life, Family, and Liberties. 


But the key activity the platform has performed during this summit has been a protest action at the Kenyatta International Convention Centre, that hosts the ICPD25, in which two trash dumpsters were exhibited, representing those used in abortion centers, where personnel places the remains of aborted fetuses. 


"The demands of true development are deploying infrastructures, universal access to quality healthcare, universal education, drinking water and the chance of getting a job", declared Luis Losada, along with the CitizenGO Campaigns Director for Africa, Ann Kioko.


At the closing of ICPD25, next Thursday, a large march will take place in Nairobi, a march CitizenGO will participate in.
