Kenyan bishops: Amend new constitution to protect unborn

Catholic World News - August 23, 2010

The bishops of Kenya are calling upon lawmakers to amend the newly approved constitution in order to protect the unborn. The constitution, opposed by the bishops because it paved the way for the legalization of abortion, was overwhelmingly approved in an August 4 referendum.

“Historically truth has never been popular, but the Church has always and will have its role to play in society,” said Cardinal John Njue of Nairobi. “As the shepherds placed to give moral guidance, we still reiterate the need to address the flawed moral issues in this new constitution. That voice will never be silenced.”

    God bless these Bishops for not being silent about the killing of unborn children. I hope their fellow Bishops across the world will stand with them in speaking out for what is right.
