from SPUC:

Tuesday evening saw the premier of the harrowing film Strings Attached, hosted at the House of Commons by the Society for the Protection of Unborn Children, and sponsored by Labour MP Mary Glindon. It exposes how UK overseas aid is being used to fund a booming abortion industry in Africa while destroying the lives of women and young girls as well as killing their unborn babies.

The ground-breaking documentary has been made by Nigerian pro-life leader and founder of Culture of Life Africa, Obianuju Ekeocha. It follows what happens to the millions of pounds of foreign aid given by Western donors, and the UK Government in particular, to sexual and reproductive health and rights (SRHR) in Africa.

It features interviews with women who have had their lives devastated by the pushing of abortion and contraceptive devices by organisations such as Marie Stopes.

Ms Ekeocha said: “This feature-length documentary presents the African side of the story of enthusiastic western donors and the impact on the African recipients of their ‘gifts’. We expose how western funding to abortion-providers like Marie Stopes International (MSI), is undermining traditional African values which respect human life.

“No-one ever bothers to follow the trail of the funding to know where: and how it ends up, or to know how the individual lives of African women in cities and villages alike are affected by it.”
