CCG Joins 170 Leaders from 21 Countries in Opposition

WASHINGTON, July 21, 2010 --Catholics for the Common Good has join a worldwide group of leaders by siging a petition supporting Kenyan citizens in their effort to defeat a referendum on a new, pro-abortion constitution on August 4. At the same time Kenyans are fighting to protect the unborn and women from the scourges of abortion, three members of the U.S. Congress have obtained evidence that 23 million in U.S. tax dollars are being funnedled to the campaign to support the passage of the pro-abortion amendments LifeSiteNews reports there is also evidence that the U.S. has enlisted pro-abortion groups to convince Kenyans to approve the constitution despite federal laws prohibiting such activity.

The 170 signers of the petition include CCG Adviser and Former Boston Mayor and Vatican Ambassador Ray Flynn, and former Arkansas Governor Mike Huckabee, as well as current or former members of the parliaments of Britain, Australia and the European Union, and the Congresses of Poland and the Philippines.

Larry Jacobs, Managing Director of the World Congress of Families, the group that sponsored the petition, observed: "Kenyans are literally fighting for the hope and future of their nation -- the lives of unborn children. The Constitution, which will be voted on by Kenyans on August 4, includes language which overturns current Kenyan law prohibiting abortion except to save the mother's life. It would allow abortion when the mother's 'health' is affected by a continuation of pregnancy. The World Health Organization (WHO) defines "health" to include 'complete physical, mental and social well-being and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.' Thus, Section 26 of the proposed Constitution sets up a mechanism for unrestricted abortion on demand at any time during pregnancy."

Africa has been targeted by international population control groups for legalized abortion despite a 47% drop in Kenyan fertility and projections that show a declining population in the next 50 years. It's reported the Obama administration has spent over $23 million to promote the pro-abortion Constitution and open the door to killing black babies throughout Africa.

Jacobs: "We urge the people of Kenya to carefully consider the consequences of this fatal move, which could be the first step on a road the West has followed, leading to one-quarter of all pregnancies in the U.S. ending in abortion. Once again, the legacy of Margaret Sanger and Planned Parenthood is revealed with their racist agenda to eliminate black Africans. The history of 21st Century black genocide from abortion is chronicled in the documentary movie, Maafa21 (www.maafa21.com)."
