LGBTQ+ bill criminalizes persons who promote sympathy for the act, not persons involved — Sam George insists

10/9/21 | Modern Ghana

The lead proponent of the anti-LGBTQI+ Bill which is before Ghana’s Parliament, Sam George has explained that the bill does not criminalize homosexuals but those who promote sympathy for the act for other to engage in it. His explanation was to cure the mischief by the group of lawyers, academia and human rights persons who have sought to get the bill withdrawn from Parliament. Most of the pro-gay rights activists have argued on various media platforms that the bill is biased and seeking to eliminate a minority group from the Ghanaian society. But the Ningo Prampram lawmaker has kicked against that notion saying the bill would not tolerate people whose acts would seek to support or promote LGBTQ+ rights in the country.
