Women Sell Body Parts In Bio-tech Market, Catholic Bishops Allege

posted in: News | 0

The Catholic Bishops Conference of
Nigeria (CBCN), yesterday, alleged that some
Nigerian women now sell their private parts,
wombs, ovaries and human eggs as commodities
in the global bio‑technology market.
President of CBCN and Archbishop of Jos, Most
Rev. Ignatius Kaigama, disclosed this during the
International Family and Pro‑Life Conference
tagged: “Witnesses to the dignity of every human
life” in Abuja.
Speaking on the topic: “The Catholic Church in
Nigeria and the imperative of scaling up pro‑life
activities across the country,” the Bishop revealed
that most of the transactions were done with
people who hold influential positions in the society.
Kaigama said: “Some scientists and dubious
businessmen use members of the National
Assembly to gain legal access to the wombs and
ovaries of women and young girls.
“It is becoming increasingly clear to us that even
in Nigeria, our women have become the targets of
all manners of intrigues, especially as their fertility
is concerned.
“Personal private parts of women, ranging from
wombs, ovaries and human eggs risk being put up
as commodities for sale at the global
biotechnology market-places.”
On the insurgency in some parts of the country, the
cleric said it was regrettable that human life had
become cheaper than a loaf of bread.
According to him, “throughout the world today,
human life and the enduring values of human
dignity, sanctity of marriage and family life have
become grossly diminished by ideologies,
politicians, religious extremists and businessmen
and businesswomen.
“In Nigeria, we have lately become overwhelmed
by the spate of reckless killings and spilling of
human blood where ritual murders, unresolved
assassinations, kidnapping, cultism and terrorism
have become part of our daily news and life
experiences.
“Regrettably, human life has become cheaper than
a loaf of bread. From hijacking and loss of airborne
planes to the avoidable mishaps of sinking of ships
and ferries loaded with passengers, to the
mindless wars and avoidable military conflicts,
human lives are wantonly wasted everywhere,
everyday.”
