Abortion bill: Churches to take to the streets in protest

63

As the controversial Termination of Pregnancy bill is expected to make its way to Parliament, two local churches have organised countrywide demonstrations to persuade lawmakers not to pass the bill into law.

Abortion laws centre for concern.

The two, Roman Catholic under the Episcopal Conference of Malawi (ECM) and Evangelical Churches under Evangelical Association of Malawi (EAM) have expressed their discomfort in seeing the Termination of Pregnancy bill passed into law.

According to the two churches, abortion remains immoral and evil to a God-fearing country like Malawi.

The churches have since set December 6 as a day to voice out their stand on the bill.

Speaking to members of the press in the capital Lilongwe on Thursday, ECM general secretary Dr. Fr. Henry Saindi said it is against the faith to have such laws amongst the believers.

We are worried: Saindi.

“From the faith perspective, our belief is that the bill of terminating pregnancy if passed into law, is a direct attack to life and must be considered as immoral and evil,” said Saindi.

However, some clerics under the banner of Malawi Council of Churches (MCC) have showed full support for the bill aimed at preventing unsafe abortions.

Chairperson for MCC Reverend Alex Maulana disclosed that they are in support of the bill to be a law in the country.

Currently, sections 149 to 151 of the penal code criminalise abortion but some health and gender activists have been advocating for the review of these two sections.

  1. Uchitsilu wa Satan lero akugwilitsa ntchito anthu wophunzira. Anthu ambiri lero akupita ku gehena akuyankhula chingelezi. Ambiri akupita ku moto atanyamula ma laptop mmanja. Satana mgalu, kumkana kupha. Kumtumikila kupha. Mnyani Satan.

  5. Ena pamenepa ndife tomwe tikunka nachosesa azimayi mimba.. Nde lets not pretend as if we r holy than them. Lets accept that the world is not a better place now. Just keep ur faith

  6. These people whom are called lawmakers goes into our mosques and Churches, hence my argument is if they understand the Bible and Qur’an they won’t do that. So let them prove that they are not just Church goers but they are God fearing people by saying no to sin

  7. The bible says “In the last days people will be the lovers of sin”. This foolish bill is a clear sign that the end is near .Every one who take part in authorize this bill will answer for the murder of innocent babies …… we are living in injury time ,Jesus will comes very soon……. So be ready for the Last day…..

  8. Koma Malawi wa lero womvetsa chisoni ngati ku Paliamenti kuli a satanic okha okha avomeleza kupha chifukwa akufuna mwazi wa anthu

  9. Ndiye amipingo mwalowa china mmalo mongo khala pasi ndikupemphera mukufuna kukapanga ma demo kkkkkkk yooh ending times, a Pastor goig for demo kkkkkkk

  10. Nde mukuona ngati zinunkha kanthu za ma demozo? Inu zoti zikoli lili kumapeto hamuziwa? Soka kwa iye ati azichitanga zimenezo akapsa ekha amene, Nanga kutaya mimba chochopo ndi bwino isa! koma abale uhuu.

  11. Innocent blood only cry for God’s
    vengeance of destruction and eternal
    doom.
    MERCY SAYS NO!
    Isaiah 1:18
    “Come now, and let us reason together,”
    Says the LORD,
    “Though your sins are like scarlet,
    They shall be as white as snow;
    Though they are red like crimson,
    They shall be as wool.”
    If you have found yourself guilty of
    abortion in any form, all you need is
    God’s mercy, and how do you get that?
    You repent, confess and surrender your
    life to Jesus completely. You are not
    going to just pray for the forgiveness of
    abortion, but you will need to confess all
    your sins, totally surrender your life to
    Jesus completely and become a new
    creation in Him; it is then that ALL
    THINGS will become new in your life.
    After that you confess to necessary
    people.
    Proverbs 28:13, “He who covers his sins
    will not prosper,
    But whoever confesses and forsakes them
    will have mercy.”
    If you are now a genuine child of God,
    living a new life of holiness and
    righteousness in Jesus, but you committed
    abortion in the past, you need not to be
    disturbed because God has forgiven and
    cleansed you. Do not allow Satan to
    haunt you with the sin God does not
    remember again; and you know what?
    Your aborted children are waiting for you
    in heaven. So if for any reason you must
    make heaven, you have your child waiting
    eagerly for you in heaven. When you get
    to heaven, you will meet her and know her
    name.
    Never allow the innocent blood of unborn
    baby to stain your life again, because
    there may not be a second chance!

  12. IS ABORTION BEST SOLUTION FOR
    UNWANTED PREGNANCY?
    Please read this story…
    A worried woman went to her gynecologist
    and said:
    ‘Doctor, I have a serious problem and
    desperately need your help! My baby is
    not even 1 year old and I’m pregnant
    again. I don’t want kids so close
    together.’
    So the doctor said: ‘Ok and what do you
    want me to do?’
    She said: ‘I want you to end my
    pregnancy, and I’m counting on your help
    with this.’
    The doctor thought for a little, and after
    some silence he said to the lady: ‘I think I
    have a better solution for your problem.
    It’s less dangerous for you too.’
    She smiled, thinking that the doctor was
    going to accept her request.
    Then he continued: ‘You see, in order for
    you not to have to take care of 2 babies
    at the same time, let’s kill the one in your
    arms. This way, you could rest some
    before the other one is born. If we’re
    going to kill one of them, it doesn’t
    matter which one it is. There would be no
    risk for your body if you chose the one in
    your arms.’
    The lady was horrified and said: ‘No
    doctor! How terrible! It’s a crime to kill a
    child!’
    ‘I agree’, the doctor replied. ‘But you
    seemed to be OK with it, so I thought
    maybe that was the best solution.’
    The doctor smiled, realizing that he had
    made his point.
    He convinced the mom that there is no
    difference in killing a child that’s
    already been born and one that’s still in
    the womb. The crime is the same!
    Love says, ‘I sacrifice myself for the
    good of the other person.’ Abortion says,
    ‘I sacrifice the other person for the good
    of myself.’
    FROM ‘THE BIBLE IS AGAINST
    ABORTION SITE’.
    Abortion is the greatest murder on earth,
    because it’s killing an innocent person. No
    one on earth is as innocent as unborn
    baby. Women who commit abortion are like
    Judas Iscariot, men who sponsor or
    support abortion are worst than king
    Herod, medical professionals who carry
    out abortion are worst than Hitler’s
    armies, and friends or family who aid or
    abet abortion are equal to Ahithophel.
    Innocent blood only

  18. If The Law Makers Pass The Bill, Whoever Signs Such A Bill Into Law Will Have To Reflect Deeply On The Implications!!! The President Is Currently Not Approving The Death Penalty For All That Get Such A Sentence From Courts! I Would Have Problems To Find A Compelling Reason For The Same Officer To Authorise The Death Of Unborn Innocent Babies!!! I Have A Lot Of Confidence In The Ability Of My President To Judge This Situation Correctly!!!

  19. If ever they pass that bill, let God punish them all……..and let them not see anything good in their families but pain and struggles
