The Archbishop of Kampala Dr. Cyprian Kizito Lwanga has commended President Museveni for standing for Life despite the pressures to legalise Abortion.
Drawing from the Maputo protocol of 2003 that discussed on the right of women, Dr. Lwanga said that although its right to protect the woman its equally right to protect life and any program fronted by development partners that might be detrimental to child development or women under the guise of rights must be critically examined to save life, norms and values.
In the speech read for him by Msgr. Wynard Katende at the annual Kampala Archdiocese Uganda Martyrs Pro-Life Apostolate Convention held at St. Maria Gorret SSS Katende, he said Pro-Life came to address the challenges to human development especially the youth in and out of school who have lost hope due to misinformation, early marriages, drugs and substance abuse and sexual abuse among others.
Dr. Lwanga said arguments for overpopulation must be taken with caution because many countries have developed basing on their populations that are planned and developed giving them a higher competitive advantage in market, innovation, growth and development to other countries.
The coordinator Uganda Martyrs Pro-Life Apostolate in Kampala Archdiocese Dr. Sandra Nabachwa said since the start of the Pro-Life Apostolate 11 years ago at least 55 Catholic Founded secondary Schools and institutions have formed clubs that give courage and transformation of the youth despite the global challenges.
The best performed Pro-Life school clubs received awards including cash in appreciation for the distinguished work in their club, and St. Bruno Sserunkuma Ggoli topped other clubs walking away with the winner’s award, that included a Certificate, Plaque and 200,000/= Cash.
