    Obianuju Ekeocha, Author of Target Africa
    Uju Ekeocha
    She was a featured speaker in January 2016 at the West Coast Walk for Life in San Francisco. She was the keynote speaker at the 2016 Canadian National March for Life. She is the author of Target Africa: Ideological Neocolonialism in the Twenty-First Century, published by Ignatius Press, and the producer of a soon to be released feature-length documentary titled, Strings Attached. In 2018 alone, she took her pro-life message to: the United Nations, the White House, the U.S. State Department, Capitol Hill, the British Parliament, the Canadian Parliament, the Hofburg Imperial Palace in Vienna, Harvard Law School, and Vatican City (where she personally presented a copy of Target Africa to Pope Francis). And now this January, Obianuju Ekeocha, known the world over as simply, “Uju,” is flying in from the United Kingdom to be the Special Guest Speaker at People for Life’s 41st Annual Pro-Life Breakfast.

    Uju is the Founder and President of Culture of Life Africa, an organization dedicated to the promotion and defense of the African values of the sanctity of life, the beauty of marriage, the blessings of motherhood and the dignity of family life, values which are being attacked by many western governments, wealthy philanthropic foundations, and international abortion agencies. The title of Uju’s new documentary, Strings Attached, refers to the practice of using foreign aid as a lever to force abortion and population control on developing countries.

    Uju is fighting tirelessly to expose the harm done to African values and African societies by the western nations, but her witness can also help us comprehend how much harm those of us in the United States and other so-called advanced, industrialized nations have already done to ourselves.

    Target Africa:
    Ideological Neocolonialism
    in the Twenty-First Century

    Target Africa: Ideological Neocolonialism in the Twenty-First Century
    Responding at a United Nations sanctioned event to a European official who would like to see African nations abandon their pro-life cultural values and pro-life government policies to make way for the radical individualism and abortion-on-demand policies of the nations of Europe and North America, Uju had this to say:

    “I am from a tribe called the Igbo tribe in Nigeria. If I tried to translate in my native tongue what it means for a woman to ‘choose what to do with her body,’ I couldn’t! Most of the African native languages don’t even have a way of phrasing abortion to mean anything good....

    “People from the western world come to Africa and try to give us these kinds of [ideas] that we could never translate into our native tongue.... Culturally most of the African communities actually believe by tradition – by their cultural standards – that abortion is a direct attack on human life.... So for anybody to be able to convince any woman in Africa that abortion is actually a good for them, can be a good thing, you first of all have to tell her that what her parents and her grandparents, and her ancestors taught her is actually wrong. You’re going to have to tell her that they have always been wrong in their thinking... and that, madam, is colonization!”

    Hearing about African pro-life values should make us realize how far we in the western world have fallen. So many in the wealthy nations have lost sight of what is most important in life, even what it means to be human. Yet in many of the more underprivileged countries and in various tribal cultures across the globe, it is still normal practice to welcome every child with open arms, to value family ties above material things, and hold the elderly in high esteem. No nation or culture is perfect. Where humans are involved, there will be shortcomings. Yet in terms of discerning basic priorities and living in-synch with pro-life and family values – in terms of being truly human – it is the “third world” that needs to teach and we who need to learn.

    Abraham Lincoln spoke of the United States as “a house divided.” The same might be said today of the entire world. “I do not expect the house to fall,” declared Lincoln, “but I do expect it will cease to be divided. It will become all one thing or all the other.”

    Then will it be a Culture of Life, or a culture of death? As American citizens and voters, we have more than just a little to say about this. Let us hope that pro-life Americans will be inspired and energized by Uju’s example of unwavering dedication to the pro-life cause and her remarkable ability to share her African vision of what it means to be pro-life. May we “highly resolve,” as Lincoln might say, that this nation will from this day forward be only a force for Life in the world and a respecter of the pro-life cultures of other nations and never again an exporter of death or the “right to choose” delusion.
