Birth Certificate or Choice Certificate?
14 August 2018
Last week the debate was about the impact of PC culture on freedom of speech. New Conservative is concerned we are about to go a step further with more PC madness.
This week, a previously conservative, and usually unPC NZ First politician, has “come out” promoting a Bill making it possible to change gender on one’s birth certificate by way of a statutory declaration instead of needing confirmation by a judge.
Family First is right in saying this is an historical document stating biological reality. It is often called for as the most basic and accurate form of identification. In the future it will be, “Yeah. Right!”
The Committee’s recommendations say that they were confident that the Bill would not place others at risk of harm. 16 year old boys legally allowed to enter the girl’s changing sheds at school and other places is not a risk? Come on! The Lesbian Rights Alliance Aotearoa and parents have every reason to be concerned.
This sort of PC nonsense is an attack on truth and science. Apart from extremely rare exceptions, every child is born either male or female, a biological fact of reality. These facts should stand alone.
“What people do in their own home is their business, but let’s keep our public and shared spaces safe,” says New Conservative Leader, Leighton Baker.
