Parents on the spot over rising teen pregnancies

The Kenya Christian Professional Forum has reignited the debate on teenage pregnancies and legislation of abortion , despite the two issues being before the senate under the Reproductive Health Bill.

The forum draws its membership across denominations of Christians among them Catholic, Anglican and evangelicals and its members have insisted that the government should refrain from any attempts to legitimize abortion or same-sex relations, using findings from a report they commissioned.

Nairobi Diocese ACK Bishop Joel Waweru maintained that sex education is the role of the parents.

According to the report, 92 per cent of Kenyans feel parents and guardians play a key role in carrying out sex education, followed by teachers with 33 per cent. Mr. Waweru added that nowadays parents do not tak openly to their children about sex.

The forum which also touched on sensitization of boys, said the lads needed sensitization especially during some rite of passage like circumcision.

Waweru ended by saying sex is a gift from God in marriage.
