MAPUTO CITY, Mozambique (LifeSiteNews) — A member of the Ugandan parliament has opposed the pro-LGBT and abortion provisions that may be included in an updated trade agreement between the European Union and many countries in Africa, the Caribbean, and the Pacific.
Thomas Tayebwa, the Deputy Speaker of Parliament in Uganda, spoke on behalf of his country at the African, Caribbean, and Pacific-European Union (ACP-EU) summit earlier this week about the unnecessary addition of clauses which support the LGBT agenda and abortion in the revised Cotonou Agreement.
Viewer advisory: The video begins with piercing whistles.
“We are a society that is not ready for homosexuality, and we are a society that is not ready for abortion,” Tayebwa said at the summit. “We are not yet a society that has lost the moral compass. As Africa, we believe that the institution of the family is the core of whatever we are doing.”
The ACP-EU Partnership Agreement being discussed at the October 29 – November 2 summit is an updated version of the Cotonou Partnership Agreement, which was signed over 20 years ago and is used for “governing trade and economic relations between the EU and all 48 Sub-Saharan countries in Africa, 16 Caribbean countries and 15 Pacific countries,” according to a press release.
“We have discovered that with the Post Cotonou agreement, there are hidden clauses concerning human rights,” Tayebwa said. “Clauses to do with sexuality, promotion of LGBT/homosexuality, and clauses to do with abortion. The EU is demanding that we take a certain route; they should also know the character of our society.”

A large childcare chain in the United States just fired a faithful Christian caretaker for refusing to read LGBT propaganda to children.
As reported on LifeSiteNews, Bright Horizons Children’s Center in California terminated the contract of Nelli Parisenkova for not reading LGBT-themed books to children as young as 1 year-old.
Parisenkova, a devout Christian who worked for the company for four years, requested to not read the books because they violated her deeply held religious beliefs.
Instead of tolerating Nelli’s Christian faith, Bright Horizons demanded she 'celebrate diversity' or leave. After refusing to comply with this unjust ultimatum, Parisenkova’s boss expelled her from the building, which forced her to walk 20 minutes in 96-degree heat to the bus stop where she had to wait another 45 minutes.
Parisenkova is now suing Bright Horizons Children’s Center for violating her religious freedom, and she needs your help to raise public awareness about this assault on her human rights.
Sign this petition today to tell Nelli Parisenkova that you stand with her and her Christian faith against the LGBT agenda being pushed by Bright Horizon’s Children’s Center.
Bright Horizons thinks it can bully devout Christians like Nelli into submitting to their leftist ideology. Do not let them get away with it! We all must take a stand to ensure these attacks on our shared Christian faith come to an end. Here are the plain and simple facts:
- No child should be brainwashed to believe that marriage is between two men or two women.
- No child should be told that boys can become girls, or that girls can become boys.
- No child should be indoctrinated with the erroneous belief there are more than two genders, or that people can choose their gender identity.
This is not education. This is propaganda.
Nelli Parisenkova was RIGHT to protect children from LGBT indoctrination and she was RIGHT to invoke her Christian faith in doing so.
SIGN THIS PETITION NOW to tell her she is not alone in this fight!

According to the same press release, the “ACP-EU Joint Parliamentary Assembly [JPA] was created to bring together the elected representatives of European Parliament and the elected representatives of the African, Caribbean, and Pacific states that have signed the Cotonou Agreement.”
Meeting just twice a year, the organization focuses on addressing human rights issues, democracy, and “the common values of humanity.”
Although this is the most recent incident, this is not the first time that Uganda or another African country has taken a stand against the LGBT agenda and push for the “right” to abortion which is increasingly permeating the western world.
In October, Uganda publicly refuted a statement from the United Nations that abortion is a “human right.” A total of 33 African nations rejected the organization’s call for all of its members to provide “access to safe abortion” within their borders.
Additionally, Kenya enforced laws in September which ban the marketing and broadcasting of any movies featuring LGBT content. The country also warned women to avoid a Chinese birth control pill in circulation, which is illegal as well as dangerous.
