Abortion Laws today
Uganda does not openly support abortion. The Ugandan Constitution, in Article 22, item 2 states: "No person has the right to terminate the life of an unborn child except as may be authorised by law." Abortion is thus criminalized in Uganda unless it is done by a licensed and registered physician to save a woman's life or preserve the physical or mental health.
How and where vigils began

The first vigil was held as a response to the high level of abortions in girls during their school years. An existing NGO initiated a pro-life ministry with the purpose of sensitizing Church leaders, cultural leaders and the community on the effects of abortion and post abortion healing ministry to bridge the gap between those being hurt by abortion and advocating for the rights of the unborn. The campaign focused on public information and education, provision of care and support, providing alternatives to abortion and reaching out to Churches to build a culture of life and love.
