Pro LGBTQ + coalition only supports the gay community in public – Foh Amoaning

Posted on

The executive secretary of the National Coalition for Proper Sexual Human Rights and Family Values, Attorney Moses Foh-Amoaning, has indicated that the only way that academics, lawyers, and civil society professionals against the law against homosexuals are involved in a public show is their stance.

According to him, these pro-LGBTQ + coalitions speak publicly against the law, but their behind-the-scenes actions say otherwise.

He made this known in an interview with Don Prah from Happy FM on the show “Epa Hoa Daben”.

“Your efforts to promote LGBTQ + will come to nothing. They are only loud on the outside, but in private they say something else. I can’t reveal everything over the phone and radio, but I have a basis for what I say, ”he said.

Foh-Amoaning was confident that the majority of Ghanaians would enforce this law against homosexuals. “Do you think that the ideas of 18 people can surpass those of 30.8 million Ghanaians? If you even analyze their arguments, you can find that it doesn’t even make a lot of sense, ”he said.

He was particularly disappointed by the arguments put forward by CDD-Ghana in favor of the LGBTQ community, the lawyer continued. “Your own research has shown that more than 90 percent of Ghanaians are against LGBTQ +, which means that we who are against LGBTQ have undoubtedly won. So how do they come back and tell us that it is against Ghana’s democracy if the law is passed? That means they don’t understand what democracy is about, ”he explained.

The Bill to Promote Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values, 2021, was brought to parliament earlier this year.

This draft law aims to expand the current law, which provides for up to three years in prison for same-sex activities.

Once passed, the new law will prohibit and criminalize the advocacy, funding and action of LGBTQ + people while promoting conversion therapy programs aimed at “converting” people from homosexuality to heterosexuality.

In the meantime, a group of academics and lawyers have drafted a memorandum contesting anti-gay laws put before parliament.

In the memorandum, they claim that the Act to Promote Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values ​​2021, which seeks to criminalize LGBTQ + and related activities, is an “undue violation of the inviolability of human dignity.”
