W.H.O. DEMANDS women of child bearing age not drink alcohol.
This is just another attempt by W.H.O. to remain relevant.
What petty, power crazy fucks.
If we had a real president he’d tell them to fuck off and that American women know what’s best for them and not a bunch of NGO who conspired with China to kill millions around the world.
The warning came in W.H.O.’s draft of its Global Alcohol Action Plan 2022-2030, which urges countries to raise awareness among the public about the risks and harms associated with alcohol consumption, detailing how children are impacted when exposed to alcohol while still in the womb.
In order to lessen these impacts, the U.N. subsidiary organisation suggests preventing not only pregnant women from drinking alcohol, but any woman of “child-bearing age” between 18 and 50.
“Appropriate attention should be given to prevention of the initiation of drinking among children and adolescents, prevention of drinking among pregnant women and women of child-bearing age,” the report states.
The draft guidance warns drinking is associated with increased disease, poor mental health, violence, lost productivity and strained relationships.
The report sparked an instant backlash, with Matt Lambert, CEO of the Portman Group, the social responsibility and regulatory body for alcohol in the UK, branding the advice “sexist and paternalistic.”
“We are extremely concerned by the WHO calling on countries to prevent drinking among women of child-bearing age in their latest action plan. As well as being sexist and paternalistic, and potentially restricting the freedoms of most women, it goes well beyond their remit and is not rooted in science,” Lambert said.
“It is wrong to scaremonger in this irresponsible way and associate women’s alcohol-related risks with those of children and pregnant people.”
Social media also was quick to join the attack on the W.H.O. and its demands.
