(CNSNews.com) – A June report from the United Nations Economic, Social and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) suggests children of all countries and cultures are entitled to sexual and reproductive education beginning at age five.
The report, called International Guidelines on Sexual Education, was released in June in conjunction with the U.N. Population Fund (UNFPA), an organization which works for universal access to “reproductive health care.”
In its rationale for creating the guidelines, the UNESCO report said it is “essential to recognize the need and entitlement of all young people to sexuality education.” An appendix backed that claim by pointing to a 2008 report from the International Planned Parenthood Federation that argued governments “are obligated to guarantee sexual rights,” and that “sexuality education is an integral component to human rights.”
Because I guess before sex education people could not figure it out. Got to wonder how for thousands of years people managed to procreate.
You got to wonder if Joycelyn Elders is now advising UNESCO since this is to be taught to children 5 – 8:
Touching and rubbing one’s genitals is called masturbation” and that “girls and boys have private body parts that can feel pleasurable when touched by oneself.”
For 9 to 12:
— “specific steps involved in obtaining and using condoms and contraception, including emergency contraception” and the “signs and symptoms of pregnancy.”
— That “legal abortion performed under sterile conditions by medically trained personnel is safe.”
— Discussing the ideas of “homophobia, transphobia and abuse of power.”
Yes Transphobia, the fear that your transmission will go bad resulting in a costly repair. Well maybe not, but surly this is another “phobia” that faithful Catholics can now also get assigned.
For those aged 12 to 15, the report recommends discussing “access to safe abortion and post-abortion care” and the “use and misuse of emergency contraception.” [reference]
