‘By ignoring the will of the people, this is spitting in the face of the very type of democracy we are supposed to have in African countries,’ Obianuju Ekeocha said
Western governments are “spitting in the face” of African democracy by trying to impose legal abortion against the wishes of most of the people in such countries, a Nigerian-born pro-life campaigner has said.
Obianuju Ekeocha, the founder of Culture of Life Africa, a U.K.-based pro-life group, said wealthy nations pumping money into the promotion and funding of abortions in Africa were behaving like “old colonial masters”.
“None of these countries has asked for this ‘aid’ money,” she told CNS.
“In all my work with African countries, I don’t know of any which is screaming, ‘Come and help us, we have this abortion crisis,’” said Ekeocha, a Catholic who has dual citizenship in Britain and Nigeria. “But a lot of Western countries, in this spirit of cultural supremacy, are still trying to impose abortion in this way.”
