Members of the Catholic Women Organisation (CWO) in Malawi have been urged to lead their families by example, to shun abortion, and to promote Christian values in their respective families.
In his message at the CWO National Annual General Meeting (AGM), Archbishop George Desmond Tambala of the Archdiocese of Lilongwe cautioned Catholic women against the temptation to “accept money” in an allure to terminate pregnancies.
“I urge you to be good examples and uphold the values of a Christian family in your families and teach children the importance of a family,” Archbishop Tambala said at the opening Mass of the AGM.
He added, in a Thursday, December 15 report, “As a Church, we also want you to fight for life by being against legalization of abortion in the country. Don't accept any money to implement projects that would advocate for abortion.”
The Catholic women were further urged to fight for the rights of the needy, including the poor and elderly in the country. They were also reminded to especially protect those presumed to be witches because of their old age.
