Policies have been drawn encouraging women to take contraceptives without their husband’s knowledge.  Pressure is being mounted on our government to control our population at all cost including legalizing abortion so that those who prefer this as a way of family planning are free.

Background

Uganda Martyrs Pro-Life Apostolate (UMPA) is a movement that promotes and defends human life from the moment of conception until natural death.

The right to life is the most fundamental human right from which all other flow. Like all other believers, we believe that life is sacred, a gift from God and should be protected as such since life has its authentic origin in God.
