The extreme right manipulates some words by Irene Montero about young people and pregnancy to accuse her of admitting pederasty

No. The Minister for Equality, Irene Montero, has not defended pederasty, as far-right media and politicians have spread on Twitter, manipulating her parliamentary intervention. The hoax has been based on the inverted commas of a decontextualized phrase from the policy of United We Can: “Children have the right to have sexual relations with whoever they want.”

Far-right media have tried to make it appear that the policy called for uncontrolled sexual relations for children when, in reality, the minister has said: “Because all children in this country have the right to know their bodies, to know that no adult can touch their body if they don’t want to and the right to love or have sexual relations with whoever they want, based on consent”.

In reality, all of Irene Montero’s intervention was about the Sexual and Reproductive Rights Act and addressed both the right to receive sex education and the right of 16 and 17 year old girls to voluntarily interrupt pregnancy without the obligation. to have prior parental permission.

Montero replied to an opposition deputy opposed to this right that “he is telling a 16 or 17-year-old girl that she can undergo a life-or-death operation without informing anyone, but if it is a voluntary interruption of the pregnancy, her father and mother have to give her permission.”

From Vox, both the leader of the far-right formation, Santiago Abascal, and one of its leaders, Jorge Buxadé, have joined the spread of the hoax, which has also been widely spread by far-right agitators.
