Samuel Nartey George, the Member of Parliament for Ningo-Prampram, and lead Sponsor of the Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill 2021, has refuted claims that the Bill intends to criminalise intersex persons. Intersex means an individual whose sexual anatomy or chromosomes do not fit the traditional markets of males and females. Mr George said this when proponents of the bill took their turn to articulate its objectives before Parliament’s Committee on Constitutional, Legal and Parliamentary Affairs. The Committee has been holding public hearings on the Promotion of Proper Human Sexual Rights and Ghanaian Family Values Bill 2021, also known as the Anti-Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, Queer and Intersex (LGBTQI) bill.
