Ghana bishops’ pro-life conference denounces abortion, upholds sacramental marriage

August 20, 2015

A pro-life conference organized by the Ghana Catholic Bishops’ Conference has strongly denounced abortion, population control, and threats to sacramental marriage.

In a joint statement at the conclusion of the conference, the vice president of the bishops’ conference and the CEO of Culture of Life Africa said that “every nation, every institution, every man and woman must respect, protect and uphold the dignity and sanctity of every human life from the moment of conception until its natural end.”

“Sacramental marriage is instituted by God as a permanent and indissoluble union between one man and one woman; open to life and love,” they continued. “Thus, other forms of unions such as homosexual unions and adulterous unions are inimical to the mind of the Creator.”

The signatories also denounced “the radical promotion of abortion, the use of condoms and other forms of contraception by various international groups and organizations through international platforms and humanitarian aid.”

    Hooray for the African bishops! I look to them for the Truth and, sadly, not to too many of our American or European or even Asian bishops.
