Canada and the U.K. have been leading the international charge against the proposed law, with both prime ministers  Gordon Brown and Stephen Harper condemning it.

And the very people — America's elected officials who believe in human rights — we would expect to pressure Uganda's lawmakers not to make such a bill law are turning out to be its biggest supporters."
