PM Orbán announces referendum on child protection law: The future of our children is at stake

Prime Minister Orbán took to his Facebook page to announce five questions that will be put to voters in an upcoming referendum on Hungary’s child protection law. Five years ago, the PM said, it was a referendum and the common will of the people that stopped Brussels from forcing us to accept migrants. We stopped them then, we can stop them now, PM Orbán said.

In a video statement on his Facebook page, Prime Minister Viktor Orbán announced that his government is launching a referendum on Hungary’s child protection law.

“Brussels has clearly attacked Hungary in recent weeks over the child protection law,” PM Orbán began, adding that the current Hungarian legislation keeps sexual propaganda out of kindergartens, schools, TV shows and advertisements. Now, the PM continued, Brussels is demanding amendments to the Education Act and child protection law.

In Western Europe, “LGBTQ activists visit kindergartens and schools and conduct sexual education classes. They want to do this here in Hungary as well, which is why the bureaucrats in Brussels are threatening us and initiating infringement procedures — that is, abusing their power,” PM Orbán said. According to the prime minister, when the pressure on our country is so strong, it is only the common will of the people that can protect Hungary.

Therefore, the Hungarian Government has decided to initiate a referendum on the following five questions:

  • Do you support the holding of presentations in public education institutions to introduce minors to topics on sexual orientation without the authorization of their parents?
  • Do you support the promotion of gender reassignment treatments for minors?
  • Do you support gender reassignment treatments being made available to minors?
  • Do you support minors being shown, without any restriction, media content of a sexual nature that is capable of influencing their development?
  • Do you support minors being shown media content that demonstrates gender reassignment?

Ultimately, the prime minister asked Hungarians to say no to these questions, just as they did five years ago when we stopped Brussels from forcing migrants on us.

“We have already succeeded once, and together we will succeed again,” PM Orbán said in closing.
