The United Nations recently appointed Dr. Tlaleng Mofokeng as the U.N. special rapporteur on the right to health. “Dr. T,” as she is known to fans, is a sexual rights advocate who—like Sen. Kamala Harris, D-Calif.—supports decriminalizing prostitution.
Mofokeng promoted “sex work” to readers of Teen Vogue last year. She said, “The idea of purchasing intimacy and paying for the services can be affirming for many people who need human connection, friendship, and emotional support. Some people may have fantasies and kink preferences that they are able to fulfill with the services of a sex worker.”
Last February, when asked in an interview, “Do you think that sex work ought to be decriminalized?” Harris said, “I think so, I do.” She went on to say that it is a complicated issue and that “we should really consider that we can’t criminalize consensual behavior as long as no one is being harmed.”
Perhaps Harris is unaware of the myriad risks to “sex workers”—even those working “voluntarily” in the business—including assault, traumatic brain injury, PTSD, and death, as documented by the National Center on Sexual Exploitation. Perhaps Harris is also unaware that there are no independent studies showing that decriminalizing prostitution makes it safer.
If Harris takes the helm as vice president of the United States, she—in tandem with Mofokeng and other sexual rights advocates—will be situated to work cooperatively with the United Nations to decriminalize the sex trade on a global level.
Unfortunately, this is not brave new territory for the United Nations or its partners. The United Nations’ World Health Organization is featured at DecriminalizeSex.work as an official supporter of the decriminalization movement. Additionally, the WHO document “Sexual Health, Human Rights and the Law” flatly states, “All countries should work toward decriminalization of sex work.”
But what makes the international climate surrounding sex even more troubling is that entities, including International Planned Parenthood Federation, are pushing to reduce the age of sexual consent around the world.
It doesn’t take a genius to see that if efforts to decriminalize prostitution and lower the age of sexual consent are successful, the likely result will be the decriminalized prostitution of minors—or in other words, children.
This is in line with the sexual ideology United Nations agencies and their partners have been pushing for years. The United Nations is a strong advocate for children’s sexual rights as promoted through “comprehensive sexuality education” programs.
Comprehensive sexuality education programs frame sex and sexual pleasure as a “right” for all people, including young people (see Glenn Beck’s exposé on comprehensive sexuality education here).
UNESCO’s 2018 “International Technical Guidance on Sexuality Education” document promotes comprehensive sexuality education and is endorsed by multiple U.N. agencies. It says:
The WHO’s 2017 framework for sexuality educators says sexuality educators should “demonstrate a positive attitude and respect towards sexuality in children.” (For more examples of the WHO’s sexuality education guidelines for children see here, here, and StopCSE.org.) And of course, U.N. agencies, Harris, and the Democratic Party at large promote abortion as a “sexual right” for all people.
Abortion giant Planned Parenthood even features a page on its website titled “Nine Reasons to Love Kamala Harris.”
The International Planned Parenthood Federation regularly partners with U.N. agencies in efforts to radicalize sexual norms and undermine the family (read more here).
The International Planned Parenthood Federation’s “Exclaim!” document, which promotes sexual rights to youth, says, “There is a common misconception that young people are not or should not be sexual beings with the exception of certain groups, such as married young people or young people above a certain age. Sexuality is a central aspect of being human during all phases of each person’s life.”
The International Planned Parenthood Federation further says that “young people’s sexual rights must be guaranteed” and “governments and leaders have a duty to respect, protect and fulfill all sexual rights for everyone.”
Many proponents of the sexual rights movement believe that “fulfilling all sexual rights for everyone” encompasses protecting their right to prostitute themselves. It appears Harris agrees.
The Trump administration’s conservative appointments to the U.N. and to the Department of Health and Human Services over the past four years have significantly crippled the international children’s sexual rights movement and slowed efforts to expand abortion and decriminalize prostitution.
If former Vice President Joe Biden and Harris take the reins, however, prepare for the rot of civilization to be accelerated by the proliferation of sexual rights propaganda for children and the decriminalization of prostitution.
