An appeal has been sent out to Churches and Christians to sign a petition requesting the South African government to amend the Abortion Act (which has resulted in the killing of 1.3 million South Africans since 1997) to reflect the right to life guaranteed in the Constitution of all persons, including the pre-born.
Eight people from several pro-life ministries who have joined forces to walk 500km from Beaufort West to Cape Town from January 20 to February 1, will carry the petition during their Walk for Life which will end with the handing in of the petitions at Parliament on February 1.
“Abortion on demand will be 19 years in our country in February 2016. We can put a stop to this because God is on our side,” says Collette Thomas of Human Life International (SA) in an email requesting people to make and distribute copies of the petition which can be downloaded here.
“Once you have completed a sheet of petition scan and send to my email [firstname.lastname@example.org],” she says.
All the petitions need to be in and scanned by January, 31, 2016.
