38: Fighting Africa’s Battles–Obianuju Ekeocha

Ever see a bully and want to stand up to him, but couldn’t quite do it? Maybe fear got in the way, or you figured the net result wouldn’t be worth it. Obianuju (“Uju” for short) Ekeocha has mastered the art of standing up to bullies in the form of those who push the culture of death onto her beloved Africa.

In 2012, Uju had had enough of well-meaning First World leaders injecting contraception and abortion requirements into foreign policy to “help the poor Africans” and she wrote an Open Letter to Melinda Gates, wife of Bill.

That Letter went viral and the foundress of Culture of Life Africa  soon found herself debating pro-abortion advocates on the BBC, advising African Members of Parliament, and speaking at conferences around the world. In our interview, she shares insights into best practices for effectively and persuasively arguing on behalf of the culture of life.

Uju is working on a major book by Ignatius Press, titled Target Africa, and is crowdfunding a documentary. Inspiring!
