Doctors Should Keep Their Clothes On For Charity

Doctors Should Keep Their Clothes On For Charity

Family First NZ is applauding children’s charity KidsCan’s decision to refuse proceeds from the sale of a calendar of nude doctors.


“One has to question the judgement of the medical recruit firm MedRecruit that they would deem it appropriate to link a charity for at-risk children with nudity, and in the minds of many people, a sexually-themed calendar,” says Bob McCoskrie, National Director of Family First NZ.

“There doesn’t have to be full exposure for there still to be a sexualised pose which many would deem offensive.”

“It seems a pity that the organisers used the ‘sex sells’ theme to try and raise funds for a great charity. Their intent is admirable, but the outcome is completely inappropriate.”

“The sexualisation and ‘pornification’ of children, child pornography, sexual abuse, and inappropriate public nudity are major issues that our communities need to confront,” says Mr McCoskrie.

“We would ask these doctors to be part of the solution – not to perpetuate the problem.”
