Experts and critics around the world are raising the alarm about new international legal recommendations that have received backing from the United Nations (UN) and would legalize sex between adults and children.
A shocking report issued by UN-backed international legal experts appears to open the floodgates to normalizing sex with minors.
“Sexual conduct involving persons below the domestically prescribed minimum age of consent to sex may be consensual in fact, if not in law,” the Geneva-based International Commission of Jurists (ICJ) wrote in March.
The recommendation was written with an assist from UNAIDS and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights.
The report is titled “The 8 March Principles for a Human Rights-Based Approach to Criminal Law Proscribing Conduct Associated with Sex, Reproduction, Drug Use, HIV, Homelessness and Poverty.”
It is published front and center on the ICJ’s website.
It does not actively call for decriminalizing sex between adults and minors but, instead, pushes for laws to allow children to give “consent.”
The report claims that children have both the capacity and the legal right to make sexual decisions.
“According to the United Nations, children may consent to sex with adults,” social media influencer Ian Miles Cheong tweeted to his 538,000 followers.
“This has been the plan all along.”

The report does not offer a suggested age of sexual consent.
Instead, the report appears to suggest that all children have the ability to consent to sex with adults.
It was released on March 8 in recognition of International Women’s Day.
The ICJ suggests on its website that there is a connection between women’s rights and the age of sexual consent.
The once-unthinkable recommendations from an international cabal of global elite legal minds appear to suggest that pedophilia could be normalized.
The news sparked a reaction of sheer horror on social media around the world.
“The UN is full of pedophiles!!!!” former NHL star and Canadian Olympic gold medalist Theo Fleury blasted on Twitter.

“This hideous UN report … seeks to decriminalize sex — even between children and minors. Evil,” tweeted women’s rights activist Michelle Uriarau of Melbourne, Australia.
She notes that its publication on International Women’s Day succeeded in “gaslighting women everywhere.”
The International Commission of Jurists added in its report, “In this context, the enforcement of criminal law should reflect the rights and capacity of persons under 18 years of age to make decisions about engaging in consensual sexual conduct and their right to be heard in matters concerning them.”
It said further, “Pursuant to their evolving capacities and progressive autonomy, persons under 18 years of age should participate in decisions affecting them, with due regard to their age, maturity and best interests, and with specific attention to non-discrimination guarantees.”

The shocking recommendations from international legal elites underscore a number of major recent events in the United States and around the world that have unfolded with bewildering speed.
Each development suggests people in positions of authority have worked to break traditional legal bounds, societal structures, and once-universal taboos for the purpose of sexualizing children.
Among them: The disturbing case of Jeffrey Epstein, who was charged with running an international child sex trafficking ring that provided underage girls to global power players.
There is also a sudden dramatic rise in the number of transgender people and the normalization of trans culture.
The shirt is being fueled by popular culture and public education, defying all known historic precedents.
In addition, educators in many instances now brazenly state that parents have limited rights over their children while their classrooms grow increasingly sexualized.
“From long years in the law, and as a proudly gay man, I know profoundly how criminal law signals which groups are deemed worthy of protection — and which of condemnation and ostracism,” wrote retired Judge Edwin Cameron of the Constitutional Court of South Africa in the foreword of the report.
“In this way, the criminal law performs an expressive function — and it has dramatic consequences on people’s lives.
“It sometimes entails a harshly discriminatory impact on groups identified with the disapproved or stigmatized conduct.”
The report, the group says, was “developed over a five-year consultative process, following an initial expert meeting of jurists convened in 2018 by the ICJ — together with the Joint UN Programme on HIV/AIDS (UNAIDS) and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) — to discuss the role of jurists in addressing the detrimental human rights impact of certain criminal laws.”
It also says, “The process of elaboration … included expert jurists, academics, legal practitioners, human rights defenders and various civil society organizations working in diverse legal traditions.”
