Catholic Knights reiterate stand on abortion

By Josephine Agbonkhese

Catholic Knights in Lagos, under the auspices of Knights of St. Mulumba Lagos Metropolitan Council, have reiterated that their stand on abortion and contraceptive usage remain zero tolerance, even amid current economic pressure on many families to control population.

Speaking at a pre-event briefing in Lagos to announce the council’s upcoming ‘Vigil on Abortion’ holding this Friday, in collaboration with the Family and Human Life Unit of the Catholic Archdiocese of Lagos, the Metropolitan Grand Knight, Dr Charles Mbelede, described abortion as the greatest destroyer of peace and stability in any nation, while reeling out its health risks.

Mbelede disclosed that the Archdiocese of Lagos had established a home, Ozanam House, to cater for pregnant young girls sent away from their homes or schools.
