U.N. Group Stands Up for Children’s Sexual and Reproductive Rights, Including Abortion

(CNSNews.com) – Y-PEER, a youth initiative of the United Nations Population Fund (UNFPA), says “more needs to be done to ensure young people’s sexual and reproductive rights” — especially “the right to choose,” a reference to abortion.

The statement also says all young people globally have the “right to confidentiality” and the right to “be free from judgment.”

Tyler Ament of Catholic Family and Human Rights Institute (C-FAM) told CNSNews.com, “The statement doesn’t mention the age specifically, but the UN defines youth as those between the ages of 10-24.”

The U.N.-affiliated group also issued what U.N. analysts say is a call for the decriminalization of prostitution and drug use.

The “Joint Youth Statement on the Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights of Young People.” was released in preparation for the U.N. Youth Conference, which began Monday in New York.

“In order to fully recognise young people’s sexual and reproductive rights, especially the right to choose, we must achieve universal access to safe and youth-friendly sexual and reproductive health care services, including access to evidence-based comprehensive sexuality education, in formal and non-formal settings,” the document states.

The phrase “reproductive health care services” includes abortion, which the statement further underscores.

“Young women’s health is threatened by policies and services that do not provide life-saving access to family planning and contraception,” the Y-PEER document said. “It is vital to implement key effective measures in the continuum of care for maternal health, including access to safe abortion.”

It further stated: “The rights of marginalized young people, including those who are living with HIV, Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgendered, young men who have sex with men, sex workers, injecting drug users, disabled youth, young people in crisis situations and other vulnerable youth continue to be violated through policies and programmes that criminalize them and ignore their specific needs.”…

…“The statement says that the U.N.’s youth agenda isn’t really focused on the fundamental needs of youth,” he told CNSNews.com. “Most of the youth they focus on are youth in developing countries, and developing countries still don’t have good access to water, basic health care, and jobs. Thousands of children die every day because of malaria, and the majority of maternal deaths occur in developing countries. Shouldn’t these be higher priority development items than ‘sex rights’?”…
