Så kan incest være på vej til at blive lovligt i EU-staten Tyskland. Det skriver britiske The Telegraph:
Laws banning incest between brothers and sisters in Germany could be scrapped after a government ethics committee said the they were an unacceptable intrusion into the right to sexual self-determination.
“Criminal law is not the appropriate means to preserve a social taboo,” the German Ethics Council said in a statement. “The fundamental right of adult siblings to sexual self-determination is to be weighed more heavily than the abstract idea of protection of the family.”
Their intervention follows a notorious case in which a brother and sister living as partners in Saxony had four children together….
Two of the couple’s children are disabled, and it is believed that incest carries a higher risk of resulting in children with genetic abnormalities.
But the Ethics Council dismissed that argument, on the basis that other genetically affected couples are not banned from having children.
Vi er altså nået dertil, at “seksuel selvbestemmelse” er en “menneskeret”, ligesom det selvfølgeligt er en menneskeret at sprede arvelige sygdomme til den næste generation. Alt sammen i frihedens navn, forstås.
