Polish President Vows to Protect Children from ‘Transgender Ideology’
Andrzej Duda pledges better support for traditional families
Poland's President Andrzej Duda has vowed that he will protect Polish children from "transgender ideology" and says his government will offer better support to traditional families.
If he wins a second term in the Polish presidential elections later this month, Duda vows he will "defend children" from being educated with "LGBT ideology" in schools.
The Polish leader promises to ban the promotion of abortions and gender "fluidity" from schools and teach more traditional values.
"It is a foreign ideology," Duda said, stressing that "parents are responsible for the sexual education of their children.”
"There is no consent for this phenomenon to happen in our country in any way,” he added.
Duda unveiled a "Family Charter" of proposals on Wednesday, which includes pledges to preserve and expand popular schemes subsidizing elderly citizens and families who have children.
The Law and Justice (PiS) party politician promised to “protect the interests of the family” from dangers such as pornography and to “defend the institution of marriage,” according to Breitbart.
Duda stresses that the nuclear family is rooted in Polish tradition and is the institution on which society is built.
The national-conservative party’s Family Charter is in sharp contrast to the "LGBT+ Charter" previously signed by Duda’s main opponent in the June 28th presidential race, the liberal Warsaw Mayor Rafal Trzaskowski.
Included in this declaration was the demand that Polish schools must adopt "LGBT-inclusive" teaching, which adheres to the World Health Organization (WHO) and UN-produced "comprehensive sex education" guidelines.
Breitbart previously reported on the content of these guidelines, which promote transgender ideology, homosexual lifestyles, and “safe access to abortion.”
It also encourages the so-called sexual "rights" of children, including that infants under the age of four should be given information about “early childhood masturbation” and “the right to explore gender identities.”
Duda’s promise to protect children from gender ideology has been described by the globalist international media as an “attack on the LGBT community,” and as the president “portraying gay people as enemies.”
Portraying the president and his PiS allies as aggressors in a culture war, Reuters featured a quote from far-left presidential candidate Robert Biedron –who is himself gay — likening the Family Charter to policies favored by former German Chancellor Adolf Hitler.
“This is a radical document which divides Polish society, introducing standards reminiscent of the most brutal…times of Polish and European history,” he said.
Duda has suffered a decline in popularity over recent months due to economic fallout from coronavirus, but still holds a lead of two percent over Trzaskowski, according to the latest opinion polls.
