UN promotes prostitution

The UN is at it again, being at the forefront of anti-life, anti-family homosexualist advances. Now it wants prostitution (oh, excuse me, “sex work”) fully legalized. The intent is to give prostitutes their rights and to keep them safe from HIV/AIDS.

From safe sex and safe abortion now to safe commercial sex. Safe? Indiscriminate sex has resulted in greatly increased STDs. Abortion has never been safe, certainly not for the aborted child, but even for the woman, who contends with physical, emotional, psychological and spiritual infirmities. Condoms fail in preventing pregnancies, and with the HIV virus much smaller than the sperm, have also failed in preventing HIV/AIDS. The facts and realities throughout the world through all these years have proven all these. And still the UN promotes prostitution and “safe commercial sex” through condoms.

The UN is failing miserably as an agency that promotes peace and goodwill in the world. The UN has become a purveyor of sex, prostitution, drug use and homosexuality. Is it any wonder that the UN is also failing in its mission and vision, coming from Isaiah 2:4, to beat swords into plowshares? Instead of nations not raising the sword against another, the world is once again experiencing many wars, including civil wars, and the threat of global conflict continues.

UN Promotes Prostitution as Harm Reduction

By Terrence McKeegan, J.D.

NEW YORK, February 24 (C-FAM)  A United Nations agency is actively funding the full legalization of prostitution with the support of UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon. The agency even partnered with a prostitution advocacy group to co-chair a UN advisory group on HIV and “sex work.”

UNAIDS, a joint program of the major UN agencies, is promoting “sex work” programs under the guise of harm reduction in combating HIV/AIDS and preventing discrimination against vulnerable groups.

One UNAIDS-funded organization is the Network of Sex Work Projects (NSWP).   The NSWP is the featured website on the controversial Interagency Youth Working Group, a US-funded project.  The NSWP is described as an “alliance of sex workers and organizations that provide services to sex workers and promote sex workers’ health and human rights.”

On their website, NSWP actually takes credit for the term ‘sex worker’ replacing ‘prostitute’. “More than mere political correctness,” says NSWP,  “this shift in language had the important effect of moving global understandings of sex work toward a labour framework which signposts solutions to many of the problems faced by sex workers. It also questions the stigma of sex work and represents greater recognition of sex workers as rights bearers, with the capacity to make a difference.”

One of NSWP’s major publications is “Making Sex Work Safe.” The introduction of the publication states, “In general, sex workers have high numbers of sexual partners.  But this in itself does not necessarily increase the chances of becoming infected with HIV.  If condoms are used consistently and correctly, sex workers will not contract HIV – no matter how many clients they have.  This means that sex work can be safe.

Section 5 of “Making Sex Work Safe”  is called “Safe Commercial Sex”, and features a graphic photo of an educator demonstrating the use of condoms in oral sex.  The section offers the advice that “sex workers need a range of skills that enable them to maximize their income and reduce exposure to HIV.”

In May 2009, the NSWP was appointed to co-chair the UNAIDS Advisory Group on HIV and Sex Work with UNAIDS.  Earlier that year, NSWP was instrumental in the issuance of a revised UNAIDS Guidance Note on HIV and Sex Work.

The introduction to the guidance note highlights a speech UN Secretary General Ban Ki-moon made to the International AIDS conference in 2008 in which he called for the decriminalization of sex work, drug use, and homosexual sex. “…In most countries, discrimination remains legal against women, men who have sex with men, sex workers, drug users, and ethnic minorities,” said Ban. “This must change. …In countries without laws to protect sex workers, drug users, and men who have sex with men, only a fraction of the population has access to prevention.”

A recent UNAIDS story features a project in Guyana, also funded by the US and the International Labor Organization (ILO), that sponsors sex workers to promote good HIV prevention practices. The story states that the “ILO intends to replicate this partnership with other sex workers’ organizations to reach different groups of workers across the country.”

“For to me to live is Christ, and to die is gain.” (Phil 1:21)
