Published

on

Chief Justice Sophia Akuffo has advised young girls to desist from offering their bodies to old men in exchange for iPhones. 

“Girls, don’t give yourself to some dirty old man for an iPhone or for any type of phone. It is a tool, that’s all, one day you’ll own [one]. You’ll be able to buy one if you are patient and you do not throw away your virtue,” she admonished.

Justice Akuffo was speaking at the Chief Justice’s Mentoring Programme for students initiated to expose pupils to the functions of the judiciary and instil in them virtues of patriotism and selflessness. 

The programme, which was under the theme: “I pledge myself to the service of Ghana”, was held in Kumasi on Tuesday, 26 March 2019. 

The Chief Justice advised young people to ensure that the time they spend on their phone and on the internet is for purposes of learning and other useful activities that will enhance their lives. 

She said the technology young people see today was not around yesterday and may not be around tomorrow but the values of honesty, respect, hard work, self-discipline, integrity and service will always be there and will continue to serve mankind.

She, therefore, urged them to be committed to the country’s peace, stability, environmental integrity, sanitation, and every aspect of national existence. 

For his part, Asantehene Otumfuo Osei Tutu II commended the Chief Justice for the number of initiatives she has undertaken to improve the condition of the judiciary and to bring justice closer to the people. 

The Asante monarch indicated that the Chief Justice’s Mentoring programme will impact positively the lives of the young ones. 

Otumfuo’s speech was read on his behalf by Baffour Owusu Amankwatia VI, the Bantamahene.

Well, her response left many netizens pondering even when others stated their own opinion.

@black_strut replied: I know a woman who hates cooking when I see one 😁

@Blimssy1 said: You didn’t add to the fact that she has to wake up early next day to cook and house chores before leaving for work it’s not easy to be a woman, not to talk of being a wife then a mother. Females don’t have any option than to accept it that way. Aye yii o balance.

‘Ensure women have access to safe abortions’ — UN tells US

Published

By — Reuters

The United Nations human rights office called on U.S. authorities on Tuesday to ensure that women have access to safe abortions, saying bans lead to risky underground abortions that can endanger a woman’s life.
Missouri’s Republican governor, Mike Parson, could sign a bill into law as early as this week that prohibits women from seeking an abortion after the eighth week of pregnancy, days after Alabama enacted the most restrictive abortion law in the United States.

“We are very concerned that several U.S. states have passed laws severely restricting access to safe abortion for women, including by imposing criminal penalties on the women themselves and on abortion service providers,” U.N. human rights spokeswoman Ravina Shamdasani told Reuters Television in Geneva.

Evidence and experience have shown that complete bans on abortions do not reduce their number, but drive them underground “jeopardizing the life, health and safety of the women concerned”, she said.
Such bans are also “inherently discriminatory”, affecting women who are poor, from minority backgrounds or other marginalized communities, Shamdasani added.

“So we are calling on the United States and all other countries to ensure that women have access to safe abortions. At an absolute minimum, in cases of rape, incest and fetal anomaly, there needs to be safe access to abortions,” she said.

Missouri is one of eight states where Republican-controlled legislatures this year have passed new restrictions on abortion. It is part of a coordinated campaign aimed at prompting the conservative-majority U.S. Supreme Court to cut back or overturn the 1973 Roe v. Wade decision that legalized abortion nationwide and recognized a right under the U.S. Constitution for women to terminate pregnancies.
The most restrictive of those bills was signed into law in Alabama last week. It bans abortion at all times and in almost all cases, including when the pregnancy resulted from rape or incest, but allows exceptions when the mother’s life is in danger.
Anti-abortion advocates are aware that any laws they pass are certain to be challenged. But supporters of the Alabama ban said the right to life of the fetus transcended other rights, an idea they would like tested at the Supreme Court.
(The story corrects second paragraph to make clear Missouri governor has not yet signed bill into law.)
