UK Calls for Bill Amendment

Sexual Minorities Uganda have suggested the following amendments to the bill – which those who have signed the letter support. 

They include: 

  • To make sexual offences laws gender neutral
  • To ensure a system of mandated reporting of child abuse
  • To commit the government to addressing risk factors associated with child sexual exploitation
  • To prevent discriminatory access to healthcare in line with Uganda’s own HIV Prevention and Control Bill 2010

As cynics, we feel it's less about promoting human rights, and more about the fear: Britain 'must act' over Uganda's anti-gay bill or risk watching an exodus

After all, if you can make Uganda 'safe' for gay people, it saves all the hassle of having to deport them or kill them yourself.
