More evidence why the UN is dangerous to families

C-Fam reports

A United Nations agency is actively funding the full legalization of prostitution with the support of UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon.  The agency even partnered with a prostitution advocacy group to co-chair a UN advisory group on HIV and “sex work.”

UNAIDS, a joint program of the major UN agencies, is promoting “sex work” programs under the guise of harm reduction in combating HIV/AIDS and preventing discrimination against vulnerable groups.

On their website, NSWP actually takes credit for the term ‘sex worker’ replacing ‘prostitute’. “More than mere political correctness,” says NSWP,  “this shift in language had the important effect of moving global understandings of sex work toward a labour framework which signposts solutions to many of the problems faced by sex workers. It also questions the stigma of sex work and represents greater recognition of sex workers as rights bearers, with the capacity to make a difference.”

Section 5 of “Making Sex Work Safe”  is called “Safe Commercial Sex”, and features a graphic photo of an educator demonstrating the use of condoms in oral sex.  The section offers the advice that “sex workers need a range of skills that enable them to maximize their income and reduce exposure to HIV.”

Helen Clark will feel right at home working in the UN 🙂

    Bob, it’s a shame you seem to be as misogynist as the most fundamentalist adherent of any Abrahamic religion.

    Sex workers exist because of the demand from men AND because men have for millenia oppressed women, including Christians, Bob. Oppression has consequences. Ask any oppressed.

    And your gratuitous and snide comment regarding Helen Clark is both unworthy of you and unchristian, don’t you think?

    I support advocacy for families, but more importantly, I support advocacy for ALL disadvantaged groups in our society.

    It’s a shame you don’t too.

    That would be Christian of you.

    I totally agree with Bob’s comments. It certainly doesn’t help the family one bit. Disadvantaged don’t need to be prostitutes. As for the Helen comment – again he’s right.
    Well said Bob
