07 Aug Kenya Passes a Pro-Abortion Constitution
With all of the emotion and commotion surrounding California’s Prop 8 ruling, we neglected to post on the outcome of Kenya’s vote on a new constitution. As feared, the Kenya constitution passed with the inclusion of the competing language of “every person has a right to life, and that life begins at conception,” and allowing abortion if in the “opinion of a trained health professional, there is need for emergency treatment, or the life or health of the mother is in danger, or if permitted by any other written law.” The clause “health of the mother” throws open wide the door for abortion upon demand.
In the U.S. and other countries around the world, it is the same type of wording that has paved the way for legal abortion throughout the 9-months of pregnancy. Because the pro-abortion supporters of the “yes” vote (U.S. tax-payer funded!) were able to effectively drown out the pro-life voice attempting to educate the citizens of the problems with the proposed language, most Kenyans–who are profoundly pro-life–are not even aware of the dissonance in their new constitution.
Pro-abortion advocates, including Hillary Clinton, are cheering its passage stating that it will end violence and stabilize the political situation in Kenya. We wonder about that. They have legalized violence (abortion) to end violence? We quote Mother Teresa:
“But I feel that the greatest destroyer of peace today is abortion, because it is a war against the child – a direct killing of the innocent child – murder by the mother herself. And if we accept that a mother can kill even her own child, how can we tell other people not to kill one another? ”
“Any country that accepts abortion, is not teaching its people to love, but to use any violence to get what it wants.”
