Motion for a European Parliament resolution on the World Health Organisation document on sex education  

The European Parliament,

–       having regard to Rule 133 of its Rules of Procedure,

A.     whereas, together with the World Health Organisation (WHO) Regional Office for Europe, the Federal Centre for Health Education (BZgA) and the International Planned Childhood Centre in Cologne, Germany have published a document entitled ‘Standards for Sexuality Education in Europe’ which takes a questionable approach to the issue of sex education that side-steps the ethical issues involved and is causing upset among parents’ groups;

B.     whereas the document, which totally ignores parents’ wishes, encourages children to engage, right from a very early age, in questionable practices such as the exploration of same-sex relations and promotes a gender ideology without any medical or scientific reason for doing so, in what is clearly an exercise in cultural propaganda;

1.      Calls on the Commission to approach the WHO with a view to establishing exactly how the above document’s scientific content was compiled and to having the document withdrawn;

2.      Calls on the Commission to ensure that a non-partisan approach is taken to the issue of sex education for children in Europe, which must remain free of the influence of lobby groups that take a purely materialistic view of the body and physicality.
