Breastfeeding Mothers Start Campaign Against Gay Rights

Lactating mothers have also hit town against the LGBTQI movement in Ghana calling it a danger to the future of the human family.

Posters of nursing mothers, breastfeeding babies are being papered around town as part of the campaign.

This is coming on the heels of similar opposition by traditional leaders, the clergy and some journalists who have publicly spoken out against the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Intersex (LGBTQI) movement.

These posters capture the initialism, ‘LGBT’ in circles with diagonal bars to underscore that the gay movement is prohibitive. They are accompanied with the wording; “Mothers Are Saying No to LGBT in Ghana.”

LGBTQI+ is currently topical in Ghana after an office for the gay movement opened in Ashongman, a suburb of Accra and was quickly shut down by National Security.

The development aroused an outpouring of public condemnation with the Catholic Bishops Conference demanding that President Akufo-Addo take more meaningful action against gay rights.

The Ghana Pentecostal and Charismatic Council has also condemned the development calling the gay lifestyle a reproach.

On Tuesday, a group of journalists who had meant to demonstrate against the LGBTQI movement was however stood down by the Greater Accra Regional Police Command which cited the COVID-19 pandemic.

The National Coalition for Proper Human Sexual Rights and Family Values has since announced it is going to sponsor private Bills in Parliament so that laws can be passed specifically to prohibit the so-called gayism in Ghana.

However, amidst the brouhaha, a Ghanaian journalist who now practices abroad, Ignatius Annor has announced he is gay and had kept his sexual alignment under wraps while he was in Ghana.

International human rights group, Amnesty International, has also condemned the forced closure of the office of the LGBTQI+ office at Ashongman.
