Ghana LGBT+ law – level 2
Lawmakers in Ghana are preparing a law that will make the life of LGBT+ people much harder. LGBT+ people are lesbian, gay, bisexual, and transsexual people.
They say that the law supports family values, but people from the LGBT+ community do not agree. They say that the law will mean more problems in families, and it will divide people. The new law says that lawyers who will support LGBT+ people can go to prison for up to 10 years. LGBT+ people can spend three to five years in prison. The same will happen to anyone who will have surgery to change their gender.
Most politicians agree with the new law, and Christian leaders strongly support it.
Difficult words: transsexual (a man who feels to be a woman or a woman who feels to be a man), value (the things which someone believes, and he thinks that they are important in life), gender (when a person is either a man or a woman).
