A non-governmental organisation (NGO), the Nigeria for Life, has mapped out strategies to mobilise Nigerians against the legalisation of gay marriage and abortion in Nigeria.
A statement issued by its national coordinator, Dr Bernard Mbah, yesterday in Abuja, said the group was making efforts to raise the awareness of “Nigerians on the dangerous implications of allowing Euro-American globalisation of the culture of death through legalisation of abortion and homosexuality.”
In a theme entitled “Save a Life: Join the Fight Against Gayism and Abortion,” the group urged all Nigerians “to protect our society from the culture of death, legalised abortions and homosexuality.”
The statement said: “Nigeria for Life is an indigenous response to what we firmly see as Euro-American globalisation of the culture of death through legalisation of abortion and homosexuality.
“We are mobilising and strengthening the Nigerian population to resist it. We consider homosexuality the worst depravity since the creation of mankind.”
The Nigeria For Life campaign had, since last year, commenced the training of “Nigeria for Life Vanguards.” This campaign would be formally launched on April 6, 2014.
“Among these babies are those that could have been religious leaders, community leaders, peace advocates, entrepreneurs, community developers, medical doctors, engineers. So it is for these reasons that we aim to raise 610,000 volunteers to represent the voice of every baby murdered in the womb.”
