As Pro-Life activists, we believe abortion is never a necessary evil. No human life should be sacrificed for the affluence, personal peace, or bodily autonomy of another.
One Community Program is a Pro-Life movement in Cameroon. Cameroon is situated in Central Africa, at juncture of the Gulf of Guinea. It is bounded on the North by Chad, on the East by the Central Africa Republic, on the South by Congo, Gabon and Equatorial Guinea and on the West by Nigeria. All human beings are indeed created equal and possess the same right to protection from murder that is afforded to all who bear the image of God. Therefore, as Christians and as Pro-Life activists, we maintain that every human being, regardless of age, size, ability, or location is created in the image of God.To deprive an innocent human being of life is the prerogative of God alone. Any action designed or undertaken for the intended purpose of killing a pre-born human being is an act of murder.Although Abortion Is highly restricted in Cameroon, It Is not uncommon among young urban women. In Cameroon,the abortion law is highly restrictive. The law permits induced abortions only when the woman’s life is at risk, to preserve her physical and mental health, and on grounds of rape or incest. Although illegal abortions are punishable by a fine and imprisonment of up to five years for the abortionist, one year for the woman herself and two years for anyone supplying drugs or instruments to induce abortion, prosecutions are rare. In Cameroon, where abortion may be performed legally only in cases of medical necessity or rape, a high proportion of young urban women have had at least one abortion. One fifth of Cameroonian teenage mothers have had at least one induced abortion in the past . Forty percent (40%) of women aged 20 and above report at least two abortions . As Pro-Life activists, we believe abortion is never a necessary evil. No human life should be sacrificed for the affluence, personal peace, or bodily autonomy of another. And no human being should be put to death for the sin of his father or mother. Christ Jesus died to set sinners free from their slavery to sin and to provide forgiveness and restoration for all who call upon His Name. As such, no human being should ever be murdered to cover up the sins of another. By the blood of the lamb and the word of our witness, by the power of the Holy Spirit, in His Providence and in accordance with his plan, we shall crush the dragon abortion beneath our feet (Rev. 12:11, Rom. 16:20). For to Christ belongs all authority in Heaven and on Earth. His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and His Kingdom one that shall not be destroyed (Matt. 28:18 , Dan. 7:14).Our team conducted a research in the Northwest Province of Cameroon over a period of 16 months between 2019 and 2020, in the Anglophone Grassfields region (Bamenda).A qualitative study was carried out in Bamenda an urban town in the North West region in Cameroon. We have about 1600 local medicine stores usually own by physicians or nurses in quaters, and from our report 80% carried out at least 3-4 abortions monthly. When women became pregnant their decision to have an abortion depended heavily on social and economic factors.The young, unmarried women overwhelmingly cited fear of losing their educational opportunities, of their partner denying responsibility for the pregnancy and insufficient financial means. Insufficient financial means in a period of economic crisis in Cameroon was also a main reason why the married women planned to have no more children, as they were often the main caretakers and providers of food.In many cases, their feelings of moral condemnation were overruled by socio-economic factors and resulted in the decision to abort.To all those who claim the name of Christ and profess to know and follow Him, we call you to “come out from among the pro-life movement!”Human Abortion is the intentional extermination of a pre-born human being created in the image of God.All we are asking fellow Christians to do is to love their neighbors as themselves and to love God in whose image their neighbors are made.Help Christians protect what matter most. Obey God, not man!(LIFE IS LOVE) Pro-Life.We are exhorting all those who believe in the God of the Bible to renew their minds in His Word, to possess the mind of Christ in regard to the least of all image bearers among them, and to show compassion to their pre-born brothers and sisters from the womb.Human Abortion is the intentional extermination of a pre-born human being created in the image of God. We live in a world where 150 to 200 million children are murdered in their mothers’ wombs every year through modern forms of child sacrifice. Human abortion is a direct defilement and contradiction of our Savior’s commands to love the Lord your God with all your heart, soul, mind, and strength, and to love your neighbor as yourself. (John 13:35)By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”Under the guidance and by the help of Almighty God, we will do all that lies within us to abolish human abortion, to deliver our nation from its deadliest curse, and to secure to the pre-born all the rights and privileges that belong to them as image-bearers of God.By the blood of the lamb and the word of our witness, by the power of the Holy Spirit, in His Providence and in accordance with his plan, we shall crush the dragon abortion beneath our feet (Rev. 12:11 , Rom. 16:20 ).In the name and power of Jesus Christ, the Son of God and maker of man, who Himself became a human embryo within the womb of a young, unmarried, woman who had not chosen to be “with child” (Matt. 1:18 ), – we will destroy this work of darkness and effect the total abolition of human abortion.For to Christ belongs all authority in Heaven and on Earth. His dominion is an everlasting dominion, which shall not pass away, and His Kingdom one that shall not be destroyed (Matt. 28:18 , Dan. 7:14 ).
