Cardinal Turkson: We need food, not birth control

By October 15, 2014News, Rome Reports, Vatican

“What can you do in this situation? The first thing is conversion. But then it is difficult to ask these men to just leave all their wives… Who is going to provide for their children? Or are they, so to say, ‘second-class’ children? That’s why the pastoral problem with polygamy is so complicated.”

African bishops taking part in the Synod oppose the fact that some NGOs want to impose birth control and abortion in Africa as a way of tackling its widespread hunger and poverty. However, Cardinal Turkson believes Africa has the capacity of providing food for all its people.
