NEW YORK, March 30 (C-FAM) The UN Commission on Population and Development is considering sexual and reproductive health and rights for children as young as ten.
Even the Secretary General Ban Ki-Moon agrees. In a statement recently released he said, Young people, as much as all people, share the human right to health, including sexual and reproductive health.
Currently international law does not recognize a right to sexual and reproductive health and certainly does not recognize this right in the case of minors. But just last year, the UN Special Rapporteur for Health, Anand Grover, stirred up significant controversy when he not only claimed that a right of sexual and reproductive health existed but attempted to define that right as including access to abortion, contraception, and sexual education.
The association of this right with youth by the Secretary General and the Commission on Population and Development (CPD), especially children, is more controversial since the right could be defined as including access to abortion and contraception.
Organizations like International Planned Parenthood (IPPF) and IPAS, staunch advocates for the sexual and reproductive rights of minors internationally and at the United Nations, have already issued official reports to the conference bureau supportive of rights language including contraception and abortion. They are also using the conference as an opportunity to attack parental involvement in the sexual health of their children.
For organizations like IPPF, parents are the biggest obstacle to minors accessing services like abortion and contraception, and they hope to secure language at the conference that will marginalize their role.
In its official statement, IPPF asserts, laws that restrict young peoples access to sexual and reproductive health services, including parental or spousal consent laws must either be removed or be refrained from being implemented. IPAS goes even further and argues that youth should be considered independent actors free of any obstacles that ignore their own capacity to make informed decisions. Their main goal at this conference will be to marginalize parental involvement and encourage countries supportive of their position to increase pressure for the kind of language that the Secretary General has already been proposing.
Given that the document that will be negotiated at the conference calls upon governments to give full attention to meeting the reproductive health, service, and education needs of young people with full respect for their privacy and confidentiality, it seems their efforts may already have a head start.
The Commission members have started negotiating the document now and the final negotiating session will happen in April. It is sure to be among the most controversial in years.
They do NOT care about our children, their innocence or their eternal souls. We must pray for conversion as well as arm ourselves with the knowledge that will protect our children.
All of this is to lower the age so that adults can't be prosecuted for sex with children. The 'intergenerational Love" bunch has work for years to get the age lowered saying that children as young as 5 can desire sex and participate in 'relationships' with no harm. The whole thing is so children can be used as live sex toys.
NO cheers, unfortunately.
NO cheers, unfortunately.
I wonder who is pushing this, the islamic contingent?
The Devil is real.
How about the Right to just be children and not be hammered into some pervert's mold of 'little adults'?
FUUN, get out of my country!
There is the key. Planned Parenthood makes money on abortion, so they have to keep the abortion mills in full gear. More unwanted pregnancies if minors can have unlimited sex.
It’s sure strayed far from its original mission of “keeping the peace”, hasn’t it?
Proponents of Muslim forced arranged marriages of children are probably behind this.
One of the defining characteristics of humans vs animals is a long childhood.
The leftists and the muzzies want to erase this and all other aspects of humanity.

I realize I just pinged out another article about this, but it is so important I'm pinging this one as well. The fact that our country is hosting the UN and is a member of the UN is a crime in itself. The UN is a nest of vipers and not one thin dime of tax money should go to the UN. If the US gets out of the UN it will fall apart and that has to happen. The UN is nothing but evil.
Bingo! My very first thought was that this is a “Get Out of Jail” card for all UN Blue Helmets having sex with kids the world over.
Exactly! It is to protect the UN pedophiles.
