The bill seeks to criminalize LGBTQ activities by establishing proper human sexual rights and Ghanaian family values, outlawing LGBT-related activities, and protecting and supporting children.
Led by Ningo-Prampram MP, Samuel Nartey George, the private members' bill is being championed by eight members of Parliament.
The Bill proposes a jail term for people who engage in same-sex activities, and if it becomes law, various forms of support for the LGBTQ+ community will also be criminalized.
While data indicates that most Ghanaians are in favour of the Bill, it has faced criticism from renowned artists and academics.
The Bill has generated widespread conversation with many expressing varied views about some clauses in the document.
There have been speculations that MPs who support the bill may be denied some privileges from members of the international community.
Several persons and institutions have filed memoranda in support of the bill and to help fine-tune it.
However, several renowned legal, academic and civil society professionals have filed documents challenging the legislation.
In the memorandum, they contend that the Bill is an “impermissible invasion of the inviolability of human dignity” and pushing it through will be to challenge Ghana's constitution and democracy.
