Does the New UN-Backed Legal Recommendations Normalize Sex With Minors?

Unanimously backed by international legal experts, a shocking report released by international legal specialists appears to have opened the floodgates for sex with children.

The Geneva-based International Commission of Jurists, with the assistance of UNAIDS and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights, wrote in March that “sexual conduct between persons under the minimum age of consent prescribed in their country may be consensual if not legal.”

The report’s title is “The 8 March Principles: A Human Rights-Based Approach for Criminal Law Prohibiting Conduct Associated With Sex, Reproduction, HIV, Homelessness, and Poverty.”

The group’s website features it prominently.

The document does not call for the decriminalization of sex between minors and adults. It does state that children are capable of making sexual decisions and have the legal right to do so.

“According to the United Nations, children may consent to sex with adults. This has been the plan all along,” social media influencer Ian Miles Cheong tweeted over the weekend to his 538,000 followers.

The report doesn’t suggest an age for sexual consent.

The commission says online that the report was published on 8 March in honor of International Women’s Day. It suggests there’s a link between women’s sexual consent and their rights.

It appears that the once unthinkable recommendations of an international cabal consisting of elite global legal minds could lead to pedophilia becoming more common.

Social media around the globe erupted in horror.

“The UN is full of pedophiles!!!!” Theo Fleury, former NHL player, and Canadian Olympic gold medalist shouted this on Twitter.

This hideous UN report seeks to criminalize sex, even with children and minors. “Evil,” tweeted Australian women’s rights activist Michelle Uriarau.

She says that the publication of this article on International Women’s Day has “gaslighted women everywhere.”

In its report, the International Commission of Jurists stated that “In this context, criminal law enforcement should reflect the right and capacity of individuals under the age of 18 to make decisions regarding engaging in consensual sexual conduct, and their rights to be heard about matters affecting them.”

The document continued, “In light of their developing capacities and increasing autonomy, people under the age of 18 should be able to participate in decision-making that affects them while taking into account their age, maturity, and best interests and paying particular attention to non-discrimination.”

The shocking recommendations of international legal elites highlight a number of major recent events that have occurred in the United States as well as around the globe.

Every development indicates that people in authority have tried to violate traditional legal boundaries, societal structures, and taboos once universally accepted for the purpose of sexualizing children.

Jeffrey Epstein was one of them. He was convicted for running a prostitution ring in the international market.

The sudden and dramatic increase in transgenders and the normalization of their culture is also a result of popular culture and education. This has defied all historical precedents.

Teachers are now blatantly stating that parents’ rights to their children are limited, and their classrooms are becoming increasingly sexualized.

In the preface to the report, retired judge Edwin Cameron of South Africa’s Constitutional Court wrote: “From my long experience in the legal profession, and as a gay man who is proud of his sexual orientation, I understand how the criminal law signals what groups are worthy of protection – and which of condemnation or ostracism.”

Criminal law has dramatic effects on the lives of people. Sometimes, it has a discriminatory effect on the groups associated with the conduct that is disapproved of or stigmatized.

We contacted the International Commission of Jurists (ICJ), UNAIDS, and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights to get their comments.

The group claims that the report was “developed through a five-year consultation process following an initial expert jury meeting convened by the ICJ in 2018, together with the Joint UN Programme on HIV/AIDS and the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights to discuss the role of judges in addressing the detrimental impact of criminal laws on human rights.”

The document also states that “the process of elaboration… included expert jurists, scholars, legal practitioners, and human rights advocates, as well as various civil society organizations working in diverse legal tradition.”
