Obama Administration declares war on the unborn in KenyaOn next Wednesday August 4, Kenya will hold a referendum on a revision of its national Constitution. A Yes to this "revision" of the Kenyan Constitution will result in the legalisation of abortion on demand. Abortion is illegal in most African countries. However pro-abortion groups confidently predict that the legalisation of abortion in Kenya would have a domino effect. The Obama administration is at war in Afghanistan and Iraq. However it is also at war on another front. It has declared war on the unborn not alone in the US but throughout the world.
It has interfered in the referendum campaign in Kenya and according to Rep. Chris Smith (R.-N.J) $23 million has been funnelled by the Obama administration into Kenya to fund non-profit organizations promoting a Yes vote.
Rep. Chris Smith has claimed that "the U.S. is illegally and systematically funding grantees [nonprofit groups in Kenya] in a scheme to identify and motivate a huge number of 'yes' votes" for an abortion-permissive constitution in what appears to be "exactly like a massive lobbying and political campaign."
Vice President Joe Biden who claims to be a Catholic- visited Kenya in June to lobby for a Yes vote and promised that a Yes vote would "allow money to flow". No Catholic in good conscience can in any way support abortion. Has Biden got no conscience? The Kenyan revision if passed will also enshrine Sharia Law for Muslims.
Theresa Okafor, CEO of Kenya's Life League, has described the proposed constitution as "a conspiracy to strip Africa of its cherished values by international organizations like Planned Parenthood and the United Nations."
"Africans regard every child as a blessing," Okafor said in a speech. "Amidst biting poverty, the birth of a child is celebrated with pomp and pageantry. Children are treasures in Africa."
Former President Daniel arap Moi has urged Kenyans to reject the proposed constitution. Higher Education Minister William Ruto, Starehe MP Margaret Wanjiru and Igembe North MP Mithika Linturi are strongly opposed to a Yes vote.
Cardinal John Njue of the Catholic Church, Anglican Archbishop Eliud Wabukhala, and National Council of Churches of Kenya General Secretary Canon Peter Karanja led prayers at the Holy Family Basilica.
“There are no two ways; either we are Christians or we are not. You cannot tell me to approve something that goes against the commandments of God that say ‘do not kill’,” Cardinal Njue said in reference to the clause on abortion.
We can only pray to God for a No vote next Wednesday. The consequences of a Yes vote are too horrific to contemplate.
