Let me recall in this year 2022, the European Year of Youth, that sexuality and relationship education in school is an international human right for children and adolescents!
According to the United Nations Convention on the Rights of the Child children and young people, have the right to receive comprehensive,
scientifically accurate, age appropriate sexual health education.
Access to information on sexual and reproductive health, as well as sexual orientation and gender identity, plays a key role in preventing and raising awareness on sexual abuse and gender-based violence.
It helps our youth understand sexual orientation and gender identity and to dispel common myths and stereotypes about LGBTQI+ persons.
It equips children and young people with knowledge, skills, attitudes and values that will empower them to realise their health, well-being and dignity.
It also develops respectful and positive social and sexual relationships.
Curtailing comprehensive sexuality education does not serve the interests of children or society.
Moreover comparing it with LGBTIQ propaganda as the Hungarian and Polish Governments do violates human rights!
Let us not forget Children’s Rights, Women’s Rights and LGBTIQ Rights are human rights!
They must count for all Europeans!
