The Ugandan Parliament this week could pass anti-homosexuality legislation that would penalize touching with the intent to commit a homosexual act and grant permission to "victims" of homosexuality to respond without fear of criminal prosecution, a clause some say encourages violence against and even the murder of homosexuals. The bill also calls for prison sentences for those who fail to report violations of the law, including clergy, medical staff and family members.
