Justice Minister Judit Varga said Hungary’s Child Protection Act is under attack on a new front, noting that the United Nations Human Rights Council reviews the situation of human rights in every country every five years.
Minister Varga said in an English-language post on Facebook: “Now it was the turn of Hungary, among others. In this highly politicised process, each state can give recommendations to the country under examination,” she said. “In addition to the many positive responses, Hungary has received several recommendations openly attacking the Child Protection Act adopted this summer,” she said, adding that they would want the Child Protection Act repealed on the ground that it “prohibits the promotion of LGBTQ propaganda among minors”. “Hungary is committed to protecting children. We believe that the right to sex education of children belongs exclusively to parents. With the adoption of the Child Protection Act, we have stopped all sexual propaganda at the fences of schools and kindergartens,” she said. “The Hungarian government rejects the ideologically biased recommendations of the Human Rights Council. We will protect the rights of parents. Leave our children alone!” she added.
