(CNSNews.com) - A report issued by the United Nations-backed Global Commission on HIV and the Law; recommends that nations around the world get rid of “punitive” laws against prostitution – or what it calls “consensual sex work” -- and decriminalize the voluntary use of illegal injection drugs in order to combat the HIV epidemic.
The commission, which is made up of 15 former heads of state, legal scholars and HIV/AIDS activists, was convened in 2010 by U.N. Secretary-General Ban Ki-Moon and is jointly backed by the United Nations Development Programme and UNAIDS – the Joint U.N. Programme on AIDS/HIV.
Specifically, the commission wants to:
-- “Decriminalise private and consensual adult sexual behaviours, including same-sex sexual acts and voluntary sex work.”
-- “Reform approaches towards drug use. Rather than punishing people who use drugs but do no harm to others, governments must offer them access to elective HIV and health services, including harm reduction programmes and voluntary, evidence-based treatment for drug dependence.”
-- “Work with the guardians of customary and religious law to promote traditions and religious practice that promote rights and acceptance of diversity and that protect privacy.”
What the hell are these folks at the UN smoking? But you will be comforted to know that the US Taxpayers only pour about $6.5 billion down this rat hole every year on top of God knows how much the US Taxpayers spend as part of the UN peace keeping effort. Isn't it time the US finally withdrew from the UN closed down the place in NYC and send all these idiots packing? Join me in the Relocate the UN to Kenya Campaign! The plan is to relocate it to the Barak Hussein Obama Presidential Library in his home country of Kenya. Now that is a commons sense idea don't you think!
