Poland is set to vote on Thursday on a law that would jail people who promote underage sex for up to three years, in a move which liberals said aimed to ban sex education by labelling those who teach it as paedophiles and LGBT+ activists. The authors of the bill said sex educators were often people who “groom and familiarise children with homosexuality”, in one of Europe’s most socially conservative countries where gay marriage is illegal. “The organisations and activists most involved in the promotion of sexual ‘education’ in our country are the LGBT lobby,” the “Stop Paedophilia” bill’s backers said in a written document to parliament which accompanied the proposed law. “In Western Europe, members of these movements involved in implementing sex education in schools were convicted of paedophilia,” said the document, posted on parliament’s website. Poland’s Government Information Centre did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
