The marchers had placards in their hands with pro-life slogans. “Every life is created in the image of God, protect it!” one placard said. “Abortion is evil, stop it!” said another. Another one had a message upholding the eternal values of life and faith.

The demonstration, organized by the Ghana Catholic Bishops’ Conference, expressed their disproval to the move of international organizations to promote abortion in Ghana.

Bishop Anthony Adanuty of Keta Akatsi, vice-president of the bishops’ conference said that Ghanaians and other Africans must resist being like other nations by drawing lessons from the consequences of the moral state of the west. “We in Ghana and Africa have a mission to promote life in the world and we cannot renege on this mission or reject God’s word,” the bishop added..
