The parliametary select committee on constitution and legal affairs has started a public hearing of inputs to the famous anti LGBTQI bill currently before Parliament. The public hearing is happening within Parliament house, Accra.
There have been two presentations already. The Ghana Penticostal and Charismatic Council represented by Apostle Dr. Onyina made one presentation. In his presentation, the council opined that LGBTQI posed existential threat to human existence. According to him, if all men marry men and women marry women, there cannot be procreation and human population will seize and eventually die off.
He therefore urged Parliament to take advantage of the bill before it to made LGBTQI activities illegal.
But in his presentation, Lawyer Akoto Ampaw presenting as a concerned citizen disagreed. In his opinion, despite the existence of LGBTQI communities in Ghana, the 2021 population census depicted a growth in Ghana's population. To this far he believed LGBTQI does not pose any existential threat to humanity.
Other presentations are currently ongoing. Follow the link below to join the public hearing
