Family Watch and Partners Demand UNICEF Stop Sexualizing Children
MARCH 19, 2018
SHARON SLATER, FWI PRESIDENT
Dear Friend of the Family,
I am writing from the United Nations where right now all the governments of the world are fighting at the UN Commission on the Status of Women (CSW) in New York over a seemingly simple term—something called “comprehensive sexuality education” (CSE).
Tomorrow morning at 8:30 a.m., Family Watch, along with some of our partners, is taking on UNICEF for sexualizing children worldwide through their support of CSE. We are doing this to expose how the radical CSE agenda is harming children and to prevent CSE from being adopted at the UN this week.
We have organized a bold demonstration for tomorrow right outside UNICEF headquarters directly across from the United Nations.
This is not something we normally do, but something drastic has to be done to stop this deceptive assault on children.
CSE is the number one tool used to promote abortion and radical sexual “rights” for children. For example, IPAS, the largest manufacturer of a handheld abortion kit, is hosting an event at CSW called, “Without Abortion, it’s not “Comprehensive Sexuality Education.”
CSE is at the heart of the abortion movement as it refers children to abortion clinics including Planned Parenthood and trains children to become abortion advocates.
We have also found shocking information showing how CSE (backed by multiple UN agencies in partnership with Planned Parenthood) is used to undermine parental rights and promote, among other things, abortion rights, promiscuity, and transgender ideology.
All of this is clearly documented at StopCSE.org. We strongly encourage everyone to go there, look at the evidence, and sign the petition.
The more people who sign the petition, the more people we will be representing as we demonstrate against CSE and work to expose UNICEF’s agenda and lobby government leaders from around the world who are here this week.
We even found a document showing how UNICEF is trying to abolish parental rightsso that children can consent to medical procedures and “sexual and reproductive health services” (a euphemism for abortion, contraception, and even transgender hormone therapy and surgeries) without their parents’ knowledge or consent. (See more at StopCSE.org.)
Did you know that as far back as 1999, UNICEF even published a “sexual and reproductive health” manual telling adolescents they can get sexual pleasure with animals or non-consenting persons? Hard to believe, I know, but we have a link to pages from that old manual (I have the full copy in my office) along with other current manuals and guidelines.
Shame on UNICEF!
UNICEF, the agency charged with protecting the world’s children, has this underlying insidious agenda that has to be stopped. Is everyone at UNICEF bad or is everything they do harmful? No. Do they do some good things for children in the world? Yes. But that does not excuse what they are doing to sexualize and harm children. This must be rooted out or all support for UNICEF must cease and be redirected to other reputable child-serving organizations and efforts.
UNICEF is not the only UN agency that works to sexualize children. It is joined by UNFPA, UN Women, UN AIDS, and the World Health Organization. These agencies partner with Planned Parenthood to promote these harmful programs.
We are pleased to announce that the American College of Pediatricians, a reputable organization that calls comprehensive sexuality education “a dangerous assault on the health and innocence of children,” is cosponsoring this demonstration along with the UN Family Rights Caucus, the Foundation for African Cultural Heritage (Nigeria), the Protect Child Health Coalition, Parents Rights in Education, The Child Protection Institute, UYIRKKURAL (India), Expose Sex Ed Now, CitizenGo, The Salt & Light Council, Canada Silent No More, the American Association of Pro-Life Obstetricians and Gynecologists, the Center for Family and Human Rights (C-FAM), and Feminina Europa. If your organization would like to cosponsor this protest click here.
We will have demonstrators with us who have come to the UN all the way from France, Nigeria, India, Mexico, Kenya, Hungary, Slovakia, Canada, the UK, and more.
If you can be in New York tomorrow please join us in this important demonstration. Email me at email@example.com for more information. If you can’t be there in person, please show your support by signing the petition or cosponsoring this ongoing campaign that will last throughout the week.
Nothing less than the health and innocence of children worldwide is at stake.
