The case involves a non-profit organisation operating under the very cutesy name of “The Teddy Bear Clinic For Abused Children” who made application to the High Court in Pretoria last year to have the consensual age for sex in South Africa reduced from the present age level of 16 years, down to as low as 12 years.

The Teddy Bear Clinic, an organisation that claims to be “dedicated to ensuring that abused children are protected and rehabilitated”, argued in its application to the court that the current legislation “is unconstitutional in that it undermines the dignity of children and that it is not in the best interests of children”, i.e. it is wrong for children younger than 16 years to be denied in law to have sexual relations with other boys and girls, or even adult men and adult women.

The Teddy Bear Clinic premised its argument entirely on a report written by a clinical psychologist who is seeking to promote “healthy sexual behaviour”, including “all forms of (sexual) penetration amongst adolescents, even as young as 12 years”, “provided that there is consent”, and that “(proper) precautions are taken to prevent pregnancy and the transmission of STI”

  1. These people are fake! they are posing as people who are protecting childrens rights yet they are exposing them to more abuse.

  2. Hi all, here every person is sharing these know-how,
    thus it’s pleasant to read this website, and I used to visit this webpage everyday.

  3. Good day! I know this is kinda off topic however , I’d figured I’d ask.
    Would you be interested in exchanging links or maybe guest writing a blog
    article or vice-versa? My website discusses a lot of the same topics as yours and I
    believe we could greatly benefit from each other. If you happen
