Pick up a bill on adultery and fornication if you wish- Sam George clashes with Ursula Owusu

The public hearing on “Proper Sexual Rights and Ghana Family Values” resumed today, Monday, November 29, 2021, with some heated exchanges between Sam George and Ursula Owusu-Ekuful.

The Ningo Prampram legislator clashed with his colleague MP from Ablekuma West, Ursula on some aspects of the bill.

Ursula questioned why the bill only focuses on LGBTQ+ activities if it was about upholding public morality.

In response, Sam George asked Ursula, who also doubles as the Minister of Communications and Digitization, to also sponsor a Private Members Bill on adultery and fornication if she’s minded to.

He said contrary to popular claims by some people that Ghana is not a secular state, Ghana is a state with many religions.

“Ghana is not a secular state, people have made that statement and said Ghana is a secular state and we must allow it, Ghana is a pluralistically religious state”, he said before the committee”, he said.

According to Sam George, owing to Ghana being a pluralistically religious state, the activities of LGBTQ+ must be outlawed.
