Kenya calls for advice on abortion

The Kenyan senate has published a call for memoranda on the Reproductive Health Bill.

The Kenyan senate has published a call for memoranda on the Reproductive Health Bill.

The Senate in the Parliament of Kenya is calling for written memoranda by email on the Reproductive Healthcare Bill currently before it.

The deadline for responding is Monday 17th August. The published notice does not specify that only Kenyans can respond. Accordingly, we can guarantee that international abortionists and their NGO allies will be emailing in droves. There is a lot of money to be made:

Deut 27:25 Cursed be he that taketh reward to slay an innocent person. And all the people shall say, Amen.

It would be of immense value to the Republic of Kenya to hear from those with experience of how legalised abortion has operated in the UK and the Western world.  They also need to know how it has opened the door to campaigns for complete decriminalisation of murder in the womb. The email address is at the bottom of this post.

The Bill is linked here and opens in a new tab automatically.

Kenyan outcry.

There has been an outcry among Kenyan Christians over this Bill.  It seeks to legalise abortion carried out by a doctor, nurse or midwife acting alone, a ‘trained health professional.’

Kenyans were already energised by the Summit in Nairobi held by the United Nations Fund for Population Activities, UNFPA, in November 2019. See our report HERE. That called for Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights, SRHR, worldwide. SRHR is code for abortion on demand and legalised sodomy. It also wanted Comprehensive Sexuality Education, or CSE, to indoctrinate schoolchildren in immorality.

The grounds for an abortion in the the Kenya Reproductive Healthcare Bill bear an uncanny resemblance to those in the UK’s Abortion Act 1967.  The authors even euphonise abortion as ‘termination of a pregnancy’,

UK Abortion Act

The UK Act also likes to speak in its text of ‘medical termination of pregnancy’ rather than ‘abortion’. Firstly, it allows it if ‘the pregnancy would involve risk, greater than if the pregnancy were terminated, of injury to the physical or mental health of the pregnant woman or any existing children of her family.’  Secondly, it also allows abortion ‘to prevent grave permanent injury to the physical or mental health of the pregnant woman.’

We agree that an abortion could be carried out to save the life a pregnant woman, for instance, with an ectopic pregnancy, which is the third ground.

However, the fourth ground is ‘if the child … would suffer from such physical or mental abnormalities as to be seriously handicapped.’ In the UK we insist on ramps and special public toilets for the disabled, but try to kill them before they are born.

Kenya grounds

Similarly, in clause 26 of the Kenya Bill:

‘PART V – TERMINATION OF PREGNANCY
‘26. (1) A pregnancy may be terminated by a trained health professional where in the opinion of the trained health professional—
‘(a) there is need for emergency treatment;
‘(b) the pregnancy would endanger the life or health of the mother; or
‘(c) there exists a substantial risk that the foetus would suffer from a severe physical or mental abnormality that is incompatible with life outside the womb.’

Moreover, there is no definition of what constitutes ‘incompatible with life outside the womb.’ It should mean the child will immediately die upon birth, but who knows what lawyers are capable of arguing?  And it’s a baby, by the way. People only use the Latin word ‘foetus’ for one reason.  It’s when they are embarrassed about killing a child in what should be the safest place on God’s earth:

Psalm 139:13 For thou hast possessed my reins: thou hast covered me in my mother’s womb. 14a I will praise thee; for I am fearfully and wonderfully made:

Post-abortion counselling

It is only when the Bill moves to post-abortion counselling and unsafe abortion that the ‘A’ word is used: Firstly:

‘29 A trained health professional shall provide postabortion care and counselling for cases of incomplete abrtion or complications arising out of the abortion procedure.’

And secondly, under clause 32, adolescents are to be told about the ‘consequences of unsafe abortion’.
The Bill also provides for access to ‘family planning’, ‘assisted reproduction’, sterilisation and – ‘reproductive health of adolescents’. The is not time to go into those right now.  Please click on the link to the Bill and make representations on those to the Kenyan Senate if you have expertise.

Emailing

Written Memoranda should be emailed to the Office of the Clerk of the Senate on the address: [email protected] to be received on or before Monday 17th August 2020 at 5.00pm (Kenya time)
