September 12, 2013 (HLI) – In an area of Uganda (Teso sub-region) that has been greatly harmed by the anti-life activities of Marie Stopes International (MSI), the people are thankfully beginning to see the real danger  to women’s health and the family stemming from MSI “clinics.”


Last week, over 5,000 people, mostly women, participated in an event lasting several days in Uganda exposing the harmful contraceptive methods and abortion practices Marie Stopes is known for. We were expecting 3,000, but through God’s grace, we were able to reach even more with our pro-life message! Many questioned why our government was supportive of MSI considering their history of causing harm to women and the family.

HLI Uganda is planning to strengthen our activities in Teso sub-region and the Soroti Catholic Diocese, including Karamoja region, to further expose Marie Stopes and the harm they do to women and the family. Please continue to pray for our efforts here to build a Culture of Life.
