A United Nations group is pushing to make abortion, drug use, and contraception a human right for anyone as young as ten years old.
What?! That’s outrageous. And discriminatory against nine year olds!
I’m smelling a class action lawsuit here folks. Nine year olds of the world unite. Lawyer up!
You know how little kids are. They want all the same rights as their older siblings. My nine year old wants to be able to stay up as late as my eleven year old to watch Phineas and Ferb but I could imagine others kids wanting to dope themselves up, contracept, and abort just because that’s what the cool older kids are doing.
Just in case you think I’m kidding about the UN thing, here’s the CNS News report:
Y-PEER, a youth initiative of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), has issued a call to make access to abortion and contraception an international human right for children as young as 10 years old.
The U.N.-affiliated group also issued what U.N. analysts say is a call for the decriminalization of prostitution and drug use, and for “confidentiality” in health-care services for youth.
The “Joint Youth Statement on the Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights of Young People” was released in preparation for the U.N. Youth Conference, which began Wednesday in New York.
“In order to fully recognise young people’s sexual and reproductive rights, especially the right to choose, we must achieve universal access to safe and youth-friendly sexual and reproductive health care services, including access to evidence-based comprehensive sexuality education, in formal and non-formal settings,” the document states.
I can’t help but laugh at the thought of these UN pinheads arguing about the cutoff age with some arguing that anything under ten years old is just too young. Good to know the UN has their limits, huh?
Maybe eight and nine year olds could get a permission slip to contracept, abort, and shoot H. Or maybe a judge’s waiver. But boy, birthday parties for ten year olds are sure to get a lot more interesting. Pin the tail on the…WHAT!!!?
In the meantime, whenever my nine year old asks to stay up as late as her older sister I’ll say no and tell them that they have no rights. And hey, the UN agrees with me.

Total ick. Why is it necessary to impose this on children of younger and younger ages, indeed and why would it be desired, exactly that children would be inclined to being sexually active before puberty? Why does the UN want to sexualize children.

This is just to cover forced sexual slavery and forced abortions that would result from it. No child would choose to participate in this on their own.

Well, this is, of course, the logical result of things. Once you consider contraception and abortion a right for adults, why not for kids? Grown-ups shouldn't monopolize the super-duper amazing things. They won't let a 10 year old drive, but we know that "sexual rights" are above all.

Am I allowed to hate evil? Because I really feeling hating something right now. And if I'm not allowed to hate my brother Leftist can I at least hate the evil they're possessed with?

"…access to evidence-based comprehensive sexuality education…" as long as it doesn't show how harmful sex, abortion, and drug or mechanical contraception are, especially for very young girls.
What awful people, how about promoting the right to an un-sexualized childhood??

"This is just to cover forced sexual slavery and forced abortions that would result from it. No child would choose to participate in this on their own."
Children are called infant children of a marriage in a court of law until the age of eighteen years. "No child would choose to participate in this on their own" because their choice is held in trust for them by God, by their parents and by the state. Being betrayed by the state and their parents may happen but betrayed by God, NEVER. This law is a betrayal of basic human rights and the UNPF needs to be defunded. How about the promotion of human dignity, innocence and virginity? Virginity is how people are made.
