Trump's State Department eyes ban on terms like 'sexual health'

Source: Politico



By NAHAL TOOSI and DAN DIAMOND 10/31/2018 04:53 PM EDT

U.S. diplomats may soon be prohibited from using the phrases “sexual and reproductive health” and “comprehensive sexuality education” under a proposal being floated to Secretary of State Mike Pompeo, four people familiar with the issue said.

The proposal is being pushed by a handful of conservative political appointees at the State Department and other agencies, including Mari Stull, an adviser at State whose alleged mistreatment of career government staffers has already sparked multiple federal investigations.

It was not immediately clear what sort of direct policy changes, if any, could result from eliminating such terms, which have been used for years in domestic and international communications.

But changing the terms could lead to more contentious negotiations at the United Nations and other forums over language used for resolutions and agreements. It also could complicate matters for some non-governmental groups that receive U.S. funding and opt to stick with the traditional terms.

6. They're trying to create one more cluster.

They have no plans to be diplomatic or lead on any of the health issues facing the world. The largest being overpopulation causing poverty, starvation and death for millions.

If you're a white woman they want you to pro-create with a white male as much as possible. Anyone else can die of AIDS, other STDS, cholera, plague, starvation, unclean water - whatever. Those that don't die will be the strongest for their slave work.

8. More pandering to the religious nuts.

Sex is dirty and shall not be discussed.

If they win on Abortion they will immediately move to illegalizing contraception. Which they are already talking about.
