The UN has faced criticism for appointing Dr. Tlaleng Mofokeng as its Special Rapporteur on the Right to Health due to her well-known inflammatory views. These were expressed most infamously in an endorsement of prostitution directed towards teenage girls. In the piece, Mofokeng boldly declared, “I believe sex work and sex worker rights are women’s rights, health rights, labor rights, and the litmus test for intersectional feminism.” Sadly, this position is only one of many radical views held by the UN official. For further inquiry, one can tune in to the “Drum Sex” podcast where Mofokeng recently promoted her 2019 book “Dr T: A Guide to Sexual Health and Pleasure.”
Despite her bizarre convictions, Mofokeng continues to be employed as a key official at the UN and remains in good standing with important figures from governments around the world. She also has strong relationships with influential organizations such as the International Conference on Family Planning, which is supported by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation.
Earlier this month, Dr. T served as the host for a virtual closing plenary of the Not Without FP Forum and was joined by the Acting Administrator of USAID Gloria D. Steele who said, “In revoking the Protecting Life in Global Health Assistance Policy, President Biden signaled his commitment to the empowerment of women and girls” and in protecting their “reproductive health and rights.” Of course, Steele is referring to the Trump Administration’s policy, which aimed to prevent U.S. taxpayer money from supporting international organizations that “perform or actively promote abortion as a method of family planning” around the world.
Yet, Steele was not the only notable guest. Canada’s Minister of International Development Karina Gould also made an appearance on the program and announced her government’s plan to spend “700 million dollars annually by 2023-24 on sexual and reproductive health and rights.” Gould explained that Canada’s priorities during their decade-long “commitment to global health” includes “comprehensive sexuality education” and abortion. She also detailed Canada’s “Feminist International Assistance Policy” which “places gender equality and intersectional analysis at the center of Canada’s approach to international assistance.”
Then, Broadway actress and singer Jamila Sabares-Klemm joined and proceeded to paraphrase Karl Marx in saying “we have nothing to lose but our chains” and then broke out in song with her recently written tune entitled “We Have The Power.”
Next, former Thai politician and activist Mechai Viravaidya jumped in and detailed his work which is credited with dramatically reducing his home country’s birth rate from 7 in 1970 to 1.5 in 2015. Mr. Condom, as he is known in Thailand, explained to Dr. T that he achieved this through a series of initiatives aimed in part at young children. One strategy was to use games to appeal to kids such as a “Teacher Condom Blowing Competition,” a “School Children Condom Blowing Competition,” and finally a “Family planning alphabet & snakes and ladders game” where C stands for Condom, I for IUD, P for Pregnancy, and V for Vasectomy.
“Then,” Mr. Condom explained, “It was time for the men.” Viravaidya detailed to Dr. T how his team worked to promote vasectomies to Thai men. He did so through various enterprises such as “Mobile Vasectomy Vans” which made having the procedure extremely convenient along with a “Vasectomy Tour Bus” that gave free rides to vasectomized men. Of course, financial incentives were also utilized including a “Millionaire Vasectomy Festival” and, perhaps most sickeningly, a “Father’s Day Vasectomy Festival” which marketed itself by telling people that if you “bring your father for a vasectomy” you will have a “bigger inheritance” as a result.
From Dr. T to Mr. Condom, radical notions regarding family planning have been gaining steam around the world for quite some time. Now, they even have a friend in the White House who will allow and even facilitate their nefarious activities. Unshackled by traditional morality and with the patronage of wealthy benefactors, social radicals around the world are now able to pursue their agenda with total impunity.
