Kisumu, 24 June, 2022 / 9:30 pm (ACI Africa).
A Catholic Archbishop in Kenya has cautioned the people of God in the East African nation against abortion, saying God is interested in the life of the unborn children.
In his homily at the Holy Mass for the blessing of the new Vincentian Prayer House in his Metropolitan See of Kisumu, Archbishop Maurice Muhatia Makumba said the society today has many negative teachings, which have been “camouflaged as reproductive health care for women”.
“It is not up to you to choose to terminate or not to terminate a pregnancy,” Archbishop Muhatia said Thursday, June 23, and added, “God is concerned about what goes on in your womb; He wants to have a part to play in what goes on in your womb because He created it.”
God has made and fashioned an unborn child “to play a special role in creation”, the Local Ordinary of Kisumu further said during the Eucharistic Celebration on the Solemnity of the Nativity of John the Baptist.
“God is concerned about what goes on in your womb and out of your womb God chooses people like John the Baptist,” the 54-year-old Kenyan Archbishop said.
