Kenyan constitution passes

The proposed new constitution for the country of Kenya has passed by a wide margin. Pro-life advocates there voiced opposition because the constitution's language on abortion is vague and contradictory: it states that life begins at conception, but broadens abortion exceptions.

Pro-life leaders are now changing their strategy, hoping to pass an amendment to the constitution that will clarify the right to life. Their odds are pretty good. reports that most Kenyans are pro-life. Many voted for the constitution in spite of, not because of, its abortion provisions.
