Nature of the counter gay bill shows the fanaticism that created it – Akoto Ampaw

A private lawful specialist Mr Akoto Ampaw has said the way and way the counter gay bill has been planned shows the radicalism of the brain outline that delivered it. 

He is absolutely against the bill and needs it deserted. 

"The way that the bill goes to that degree of condemning someone who is an intersex or condemning someone who is abiogenetic, this is a negligible venture, shows the radicalism of the brain outline that delivered that bill," he said on TV3's Key Points with Dzifa Bampoh on Saturday October 9. 

He further said the current discussion on gay people in Ghana isn't about strict convictions or numbers. 

"As a matter of first importance, I need to make the point clear that this discussion isn't about strict convictions. 

"Furthermore, this discussion isn't about numbers. It isn't arranging the number of individuals support gays - 30million, the number of individuals are against gay – 2million, that isn't the issue. 

"The principal issue has to do with our constitution and freedoms .That is the essential issue that we need to address."

 He added "It is somewhat satisfying that as of late the Majority chief in Parliament said that the matter won't be examined based on strict convictions. I believe that is a significant stage forward in case that is the means by which parliament will address this matter. It is an established matter." 

His remarks come after strict bodies including the Ghana Catholic Bishop Conference have said that need homosexuality to be illicit in Ghana. 

The Bishops portrayed the training as anathema based on sacred writings in the Holy Bible. 

"As a Church, we need this odious practice made illicit in our country… The Bible, which is central to Christian convictions and practices, denounces the training," 

"Albeit the specific tendency of the gay individual isn't a transgression, it is a pretty much solid propensity requested towards a characteristic moral insidiousness, and consequently the actual tendency should be viewed as a goal issue… 

"The Church dismisses the unwarranted and disparaging suspicion that the sexual conduct of gay people is consistently and exceptionally impulsive and, along these lines, they ought not be faulted for their gay demonstrations," an assertion they gave said. 

It added "By and by, as per the Church's comprehension of common freedoms, the privileges of gay people as people do exclude the right of a man to wed a man or of a lady to wed a lady. For the Church, this is ethically off-base and conflicts with God's motivation for marriage. We ought to likewise bring up that the European Court for Human Rights has decided that equivalent sex "relationships" are not viewed as a common freedom, clarifying that gay associations don't truth be told equivalent relationships between a man and a lady. The decision was declared ninth June 2016 in the European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg, France." 

In the interim, the senior member of the Faculty of Law at the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA), Professor Kofi Abotsi has said the discussions for gay privileges or criminalization in Ghana is unwinnable. 

As per him, the two sides are diving in and positions are becoming unreasonable and indefensible. 

"The discussions for gay freedoms or criminalization is unwinnable! The two sides are delving in and positions are becoming silly and unsound and this is swarming out valid justifications and carefulness as officials contemplate the bill and it's plans!" he said in a tweet on Thursday October 7. 

The disputable enemy of gay bill which is right now before parliament has as of now isolated assessment in the Ghanaian public talk. 

While a few, especially the strict and customary groupings, have upheld the Bill and confident of its passing, others say it could cause the fury of the worldwide local area against Ghana. 

Corresponding to this, one of the backers of the bill, Ningo Prampram legislator, Sam George had prior portrayed Professor of Journalism and Mass Communication, Kwame Karikari as a deceiver following his accommodation on the bill. 

He said in case he is approached to score Professor Karikari on his accommodation, he would give him a F. 

Prof Karikari had said the bill which Sam George and a portion of his associate administrators are advancing is hazardous on the grounds that it looks to advance disdain for gay people in the country. 

In the perspective on Prof Karikari, gays and lesbians are people and have the right to be regarded and ensured as some other individual. 

With that in mind, he said, any law that looks to make issues for this gathering ought to be dismissed. 

He said this while talking on the First Take with Dzifa Bampoh on 3FM on Monday October 4. 

He said he and a couple of his partners who are battling for the privileges of gay people to be regarded in Ghana will hold a public discussion to discuss this subject. 

"Ideally, the media may likewise need to get the discussion, banter them so the public will quickly become acquainted with the perspectives that we hold and the perspectives that the defenders of what we viewed as a perilous bill additionally hold. 

"We think we live in a majority rules system and we should be appreciative to God that we live in a majority rule government so whatever parliament, the chief or any part of government wills be straightforwardly examined and individuals can subsequently take their choices and afterward the officials and the leaders can likewise take some insight from the public discussion. 

"We realize that most social orders have bias against homosexuality, lesbianism and these other social practices. We are not in the least shocked that the mind-boggling greater part have biased or even disdain these little minority of individuals in the public arena. We generally approve of that. What we are saying is this. 

"This law is setting up the minority up. Our constitution doesn't segregate about people creatures except if the advocates of this bill, except if the 95% who say they don't care for homosexuality, we need them to say that gay people, lesbians are not individuals. It is safe to say that they are people additionally would they say they are not individuals? 

"Assuming they are individuals and they are people, we believe that they are secured by the constitution so any law that is made to stimulate, advance design and prepare disdain against that minority is against the privileges of those minority individuals and ought not be passed." 

Talking on a similar program, Sam George said "He has offered such countless clearing remarks and I expected that he would have been held to severe confirmation. His contention is empty and in case I was denoting this as a content he will score a F. 

"This is somebody who says the constitution ensures individuals, you [Dzifa Bampoh] read to him a segment of the bill which gives insurance to people who recognize as LGBTQ from extra legal treatment and he lets you know it is a trick. 

"This is a similar individual requesting us to give confirmation from the wellbeing challenges, the public danger that the LGBTQ people group proposes and he is letting you know that our bill is a scam with next to no evidence. 

"Today fourth October, the top of the Ghana AIDS Commission, addressing another media house in Accra censured the expanding predominance of HIV/AIDS in Ghana and the way that HIV pervasiveness in Ghana is rising. In that meeting, he was asked explicitly which segment is pushing this number up, he said men having intercourse with men. That is the exact proof. Presently would you be able to ask Prof Kwame Karikari and his associates what observational proof they need to say that say a piece of our bill is a deception? Has he taught himself and has he perused the bill or he is fundamentally going out of control around based on their misguided judgment?" 

The Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill was laid in the House on Monday, August 2 and read interestingly. 

Perusing interestingly, a representative in the administrative get together expressed that the Bill forbids lesbian, gay, bi-sexual, transsexual, eccentric and intersex (LGBTQI) and other related exercises and publicity or support and advancement for same. 

It likewise became visible that it upholds assurance for youngsters 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 likewise the MP for Fomena, coordinated. 

The Chairman of the Pentecost Church, Apostle Eric Nyamekye has asked President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo to battle Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer or Questioning, Intersex (LGBTQI+) before he leaves office. 

He said despite the fact that Mr Akufo-Addo has expressed completely that gayism and lesbianism won't be authorized under his supervision, the President should start to go to lengths to stop the gayism development that has begun in the country before he leaves office. 

"The congregation of Pentecost is 10.38 percent of the Ghanaian populace and we are against this LGBTQI+. 

"Our anxiety isn't about today, it is about what's to come. Today when we let in this LGBTI what will happen is that we will acknowledge same sex marriage which the president says it is never going to occur at his watch. 

"However, on the off chance that he permits LGBTQI to begin, the facts confirm that it is never going to occur at his watch in any case, when it gets to same sex marriage the president won't be the leader of the country. I concur with him yet he should stop this, he should close the entryways at where it makes a difference and we are saying that he should close it now. 

"This development is an affront to God the animal, you are simply let God know that he didn't think enough," he told writers on Wednesday October 6.
