A U.N. agency wants to interfere with children's education on matters of intimacy – and ignore part of what parents would consider good instruction.
The United Nations Population Fund has issued a guidance document to make sure children receive controversial instruction in sex education – regardless if there's widespread opposition to it in countries and local communities. The material even teaches that same-gender couples can be parents.
Dr. Rebecca Oas of Center for Family & Human Rights (C-Fam) tells One News Now that the educational process would go further than just the classroom.
"This most recent report that came out from the United Nations Population Fund [UNFPA] is about trying to get comprehensive sexuality education [CSE] to students even in environments outside of the school – potentially in camps and clubs and other places where kids go … and frankly where their parents trust that they're safe," Oas explains.
The training, she continues, actually leads to early experimentation with intimacy, sexually transmitted diseases (STDs), promiscuity, pregnancy, and abortions.
"The traditional morality of many families and many of the world's most common religions would not support a lot of what's being taught here," Oas argues. "I mean, essentially these curricula don't make any kind of moral judgment other than [teaching that] consent is all you really need and everything else is up to you."
The program downplays such things as abstinence and waiting to be married, while at the same time emphasizing "sexual orientation" and "gender identity." Pushback from nations with traditional values is expected.
