Pro-life activist Obianuju Ekeocha, founder and president of Culture of Life Africa, is one of the key figures leading the fight to end abortion in Africa. Last week, Ekeocha announced her latest project: A feature-length documentary on how the global abortion industry has devastated African women.
The film will feature a series of personal interviews with women from African countries like Kenya, Ethipia, and Uganda, whose lives have been affected by the multi-billion-dollar global abortion industry. It will also explore how donations to certain western “health” and “aid” organizations have contributed to the mass slaughter of African babies.
Ekeocha launched a GoFundMe campaign to raise the funds needed to produce the documentary. As of Friday morning, she had raised just more than $3,700 of her $22,000 goal.
“These stories are compelling and some of it is heartbreaking, but I assure you that they bring to the surface a side of Africa that is not captured by the wealthy international media like CNN & BBC,” she writes in the project’s description. “This is why I wanted to raise these unheard voices of Africa.”
Earlier this year, Ekeocha released a short documentary on YouTube titled, “Killing Africa,” which exposes the illegal dealings of U.K.-based Marie Stopes International (MSI), the English-speaking world’s leading abortion provider.
The 16-minute documentary features an interview with a former MSI clinic manager, who testifies that under her watch, abortions were regularly performed in Uganda, where abortion is illegal. The eyewitness also reveals the way aborted babies were disposed of: flushed down toilets or thrown into open sewage.
Claiming to operate under the law, the U.K.-based abortion provider has set up clinics in 16 African countries under the guise of “family planning.”
MSI, which performs a whopping 3.3 million abortions and abortion-related services a year, dwarfs the combined abortion rates of the United States, Russia, France, Japan, England, and Wales. What’s worse is that MSI, an organization many Americans likely have never heard of, is funded in part by American-taxpayer-funded USAID. USAID officially claims not to deal with illegal abortions.
“Some of these donor countries who generously fund them may not be aware of how their financial aid may indeed be hurting rather than helping the people of Africa,” Ekeocha wrote at the time of the documentary’s release. “This is why we decided to tell the story of the MSI mission in Africa.”
“Killing Africa” proved to be a major success, gaining the attention of the U.K. Government. After viewing Ekeocha’s interview with the MSI nurse, the Department of Health responded to a petition launched by Culture of Africa and vowed re-inspect MSI clinics in Africa to determine whether they are operating legally.
Ekeocha’s work has been recognized by pro-life organizations and media outlets around the world, but taking on Big Abortion is no easy task. Through her latest project, she hopes to have an even greater effect and call even more attention to what man view as the great evil of our day.
“It will be a miracle to realize this documentary,” writes Ekeocha. “But I do believe firmly in miracles.”
