Something troubling is brewing in Uganda. Can you believe this?

The Ministry of Health in Uganda has made a shocking proposal. They're suggesting that girls as young as 15 should be given contraceptives. Their reasoning? They believe it will curb the issue of teenage pregnancies. But let's call it what it is. It's an apparent move to sexualize our young girls and expose them to the dangers that come with using contraceptives.

And guess what? They're nearly ready to roll out this programme. It's like a car hurtling towards a cliff edge, with no one at the wheel. We must put the brakes on this before it's too late.

Let's dig a little deeper into why this proposal is so dangerous. The fact is contraceptives can be harmful, especially to young, developing bodies. Numerous studies demonstrate that encouraging young people to use contraceptives encourages them to engage in risky behaviour as they believe that they are protected. It's a risky gamble with the health and futures of our girls. And what's more? The Ministry of Health should be promoting abstinence as a safer option, not pushing contraceptives onto those barely out of childhood.

Please help us make a stand. Sign our petition calling the Minister of Health in Uganda, Dr Ruth Aceng, to withdraw this harmful proposal immediately.**

Now, you might be wondering, can we make a difference? The answer is a resounding YES! The future of countless young girls hangs in the balance. We're not just talking about numbers on a page, we're talking about real lives, real futures.

Imagine two possible outcomes. On one hand, this contraceptive programme gets rolled out, exposing our young girls to countless risks. On the other hand, our petition is successful, the proposal is withdrawn, and we've protected our girls from harm. The future can be bright, but only if we act now.

We need to act urgently. Sign our petition and ask the Minister of Health in Uganda, Dr Ruth Aceng, to immediately withdraw this harmful proposal.

Petition to Protect Ugandan Teens from Harmful Contraceptive Exposure

Dear Dr. Aceng,

We, the undersigned, urge you to reconsider the Ministry of Health's proposal to introduce contraceptives to 15-year-old girls. This plan is deeply troubling, as it will undeniably lead to the sexualization of these young children.

Moreover, the exposure to contraceptives at such a tender age is highly unacceptable. We believe it is essential to protect them from potential health risks linked to contraceptive use.

Instead, we urge the Ministry to champion the promotion of abstinence among these adolescents. This approach will ensure their safety and protect them from premature sexual activities and unnecessary health complications.

We call on you, as the Minister of Health, to prioritize the health, safety, and innocence of Uganda's young girls. Please withdraw this potentially harmful proposal, choosing instead to foster a culture of responsibility and respect.

Kind regards,

[Your Name]
