According to him, the phrase on abortion on the bill, which is said to be before the Liberian Senate, has to take into consideration that abortion is the killing of the unborn.

“This occasion is part of our efforts by mobilizing the Liberian community in standing up against extreme abortion component of the extreme abortion bill of the public health of Liberia that is currently under review by Liberian Senate,” he said; adding : “ this  is a portion that we have tried to prevent from passing into law.”

“Now, the Liberian Senate is in a limb dock session,” he went on, “we want on increase our awareness on the danger that the passage of this bill, especially the portion on sex education on our culture.”

“We need to bring understanding to this issue and keep this country for God because this is not   the way to go as a nation and people.”

Delivering the keynote speech, the former Senior Deputy Assistant Administrator in the Bureau for Global Health at the United States Agency for International Development, Dr. Monique Wubbenhorst said that the killing of unborn babies is sin and constitutes a violation of human rights.

With the election been going on, I just want to encourage you that your efforts will never be wasted because God is seeing what you are doing and he is going to reward you for whatever you have done,” Dr. Wubbenhorst said.
