(Pro-Life Global) — Namibia, a large coastal country bordering South Africa with a population of only 2.7 million, is hosting public hearings on whether to legalize abortion.
Namibians have been rallying religious and community leaders and young people to attend the government hearings and express their vote for life. The hearings started on April 15th in the Khomoas region of Namibia and continue through April 26th. In Namibia, abortion is currently legal only when the unborn child threatens the life or health of the mother, is seriously disabled, or was conceived through rape or incest.
The hearings follow the introduction of a motion in parliament to expand Namibia’s abortion laws. Organized by the government, the hearings gauge the public’s stance on the issue. Votes are taken at each hearing and the tally of these results gets put into a report which will inform Parliament of the public stance and then the next round of proceedings will begin.
In Namibia, there is a general sense of the value of life, but a small group of people seek to sway the youth to support abortion in Namibia, according to Sasha, the leader of Conservative Namibia, a local organization aimed at spreading truth. Those advocating for abortion also target the media with misinformation. They are pushing Africa to get on board with western ideas, especially regarding abortion.

UPDATE (03/07/23): Walgreens won't dispense abortion pills in 20 states
The pressure is paying off. Walgreens' plan to dispense abortion pills nationwide is now in tatters, with the pharmaceutical giant announcing that it won't mail the pills to, or sell them within, 20 states.
The news comes after 20 Republican attorneys general warned CVS and Walgreens that doing so would be in violation of federal law and that they were opening themselves to penalties.
But we can't rest on our laurels with this boycott: Walgreens and CVS will only listen to us when their profits are threatened — we need a HUGE boycott so that blood money they get from selling abortion pills is dwarfed by the profits they lose when pro-life America shops elsewhere.
Even Politico admitted in its reporting that "pressure" from pro-life voters like you helped change Walgreens' plans, so now we're asking you to take the next step: simply share this petition with your friends and ask them to join the boycott.
Walgreens and CVS will begin selling mifepristone — a powerful chemical that kills unborn children in the womb — if pro-life America does not ACT NOW.
Pro-life Americans MUST STOP the widespread sale and distribution of mifepristone by sending a message that only big-box stores will understand: A NATIONAL BOYCOTT OF WALGREENS AND CVS.
Walgreens and CVS are the newest back-door channels for the pro-abortion movement, now that the Supreme Court has overturned Roe v. Wade.
Will you act now to STOP abortion drugs from reaching your pharmacy?
Our work in the pro-life movement is FAR from over, especially now that Walgreens and CVS have chosen to push deadly drugs in their stores and in our communities!
SIGN and SEND a message to Walgreens and CVS! This is completely unacceptable!
We must stop abortion from reaching our pharmacies and stop the abortion industry from poisoning our communities — before it’s too late.
These big-box stores respond only to profit. The pro-life movement must enact a national boycott if the abortion industry dares flood our neighborhoods!
SIGN and SEND a strong message to Walgreens and CVS: unless they immediately reverse course, the entire pro-life movement will BOYCOTT their stores!
SIGN NOW and send a clear message!

“The goal for us at the moment is definitely to combat that,” stated Sasha. How? “By permeating our society with the truth about abortion so that we will be able to stand firm in our understandings and convictions, not only for now, but for generations to come.”
Pro-lifers in Namibia have been hosting rallies and protests to raise awareness of the value of human life and to call upon their government to protect moms and babies.
There are no full-time pro-life media organizations in Namibia. It is Conserve Namibia’s goal and passion to become a dedicated full-time media outlet. They just need resources and funding to make it a reality. They welcome pro-life testimo nies and stories to help the public see the reality and impact of abortion on women and their children.
