“In their haste to prevent withdrawal of the funds, local officials as well as civil society organizations are working flat-out to call for legalization of abortion, homosexuality, Genetically Modified Organisms and sex education in schools,” Buturo observed.

“Under our law, both abortion and homosexuality are expressly prohibited yet under pressure from Western governments and organizations, our officials and civil society organizations such as the so-called Centre for Human Rights and Development are seeking to confuse Ugandans into accepting crime in the name of defending what they are term as ‘peoples’ rights.”

Buturo remarked that the framers of the draft ‘Abortion Bill’ which is yet to find its way to Parliament argue that the purpose of the Bill will be to set standards and guidelines on abortion insisting that abortion a la carte is a way of life that Ugandans must embrace.

“To accept abortion is to say that it is alright for Ugandans to become morally wanting and unrestrained in their quest to kill helpless unborn children.”
