It additionally became visible that it upholds assurance for kids and people who are casualties or blamed for homosexuality.
Second Deputy Speaker Andrew Asiamah Amoako alluded the Bill to the Constitutional, Legal and Parliamentary Committee for thought.
“Interestingly, it is alluded to the Committee on Constitutional, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs for thought and report,” Mr Asiamah Amoako, who is additionally the MP for Fomena, coordinated.
The dubious enemy of gay bill has effectively isolated assessment in the Ghanaian public talk.

The following is his full assertion…
Resistance AND THE DEBATE ABOUT HOMOSEXUALITY IN GHANA
The forthcoming enactment about homosexuality in Ghana has prompted disastrous appearances of prejudice. Parliament is thinking about a bill that would condemn specific parts of gay lead in Ghana.
Accordingly, critical sections of the local area, including Christian, Muslim and customary specialists have offered support. Then again, there is a great cluster of intelligent people and government authorities who are restricting the proposed bill. Without a doubt, a huge piece of the conciliatory local area as well, has shown up, to go against the bill.
My objective today, isn’t to believe on the benefits of the bill. Without a doubt, I wish, in the expressions of the sages, we had “permitted dozing canines to lie”. The gay local area, in my view, were doing fine, in their private spaces, dependent upon the securities of the law agreed to all residents.
Sadly, the resistance to the bill, persuaded by the respectable craving to advance capacity to bear our gay local area, has been portrayed by narrow mindedness.
A few legislators, including the bill’s support, Sam George have been undermined freely and secretly. Calls have been made to the Speaker, undermining MPs. Some have been denied visas and cautioned to avoid this issue. It is dismal that this terrorizing is coming chiefly from the Western political local area.
Notwithstanding vote based system and law and order, the West epitomizes, to the timeless adoration of individuals like me, the disposition of resilience. It is at the core of multi-party vote based system and the help of minority freedoms and so forth that make the West an incredible guide to the remainder of the world.
As JFK put it, “Resilience suggests no absence of obligation to one’s own convictions. Maybe, it censures the mistreatment or oppression of others.”.
The West contended that managing China and Russia was better that separating them. The West demanded useful commitment with Apartheid South Africa while we beat War drums. They were correct.. Let us not battle narrow mindedness with prejudice.
The following time there is a political decision debate or ancestral battling and the West comes lecturing resilience, it might be ideal if entrepreneurs can’t help us to remember Western prejudice!
The issue of this bill isn’t the Parliament. It is reflecting general assessment. Allow us to keep on teaching general society.
At long last, to Parliament, proceed with this new mentality, by supporting the interest of general society for Healthcare, occupations and for battling the blister of defilement.
Long live resilience. Long live Ghana. Arthur Kobina KennedyBecome a Sponsor
