MEPs to make a stand against criminalisation of sex education in Poland 

In a draft resolution to be put to the vote on Thursday, MEPs express their deep concern over a law which could put teachers who provide sex education in prison.

A new initiative to amend a Polish law against paedophilia threatens those providing sex education to minors with up to three years in prison. In the draft resolution, MEPs express their concern about the chilling effects this draft law would have on educators.

MEPs are set to condemn the developments in Poland to misinform, stigmatise and ban sexuality in education and call on the Polish Parliament to refrain from adopting the bill.
