- The bishops of Kenya have decried renewed international efforts to promote contraception in Africa.
- Contraception, the bishops write, “is both dehumanizing and goes against the teaching of the Church, especially in a country like Kenya where a majority of the people are Christians and God fearing. It already threatens the moral fabric of the society and is an insult to the dignity and integrity of the human person.”
- “The drive by foreign agencies, whose motives we hardly comprehend, to target millions of girls and women in Africa for the artificial family planning program by the year 2020 is unimaginable, dangerous and could lead to destruction of the human society and by extension the human race,” the bishops said in a statement.
- “We cannot allow our country to be part of an international agenda, driven by foreign funds and by so doing, losing our independence and our African values of the family and society,” the bishops continued. “The same foreign forces are dedicating billions of shillings promoting same-sex unions while millions of women across are dying due to lack of proper maternal care facilities.”
