The Constitution Revision Committee (CRC) is a 37-member commission which convenes every 20 years to review and propose changes to the Florida Constitution for voter consideration.

The CRC will be traveling the State of Florida to listen to input from Floridians about potential changes to the Florida Constitution. All interested persons are invited to attend CRC public hearings and speak to Commissioners about their ideas for revising the Florida Constitution. If you’d like to speak before the CRC at a public hearing, please complete an appearance form and bring your copy to the meeting. Forms will also be available to complete at the meeting location. Appearance forms may not be submitted in advance of a public hearing. Individuals requiring an accommodation to participate in these hearings (such as a sign language interpreter) are requested to notify the CRC five days prior to the scheduled hearing date by email to admin@flcrc.gov or by calling (850) 717-9550. More information is available in the Public Hearing FAQ (PDF) and Preguntas Frecuentes – Audiencias Públicas de la CRC (PDF).

International Planned Parenthood: Your 10 year old has sexual rights

3 Comments

The article below is pasted directly from the IPPF.  Read it to learn how your child (as young as 10) has sexual rights under the UN’s Rights of the Child.  Parents however, do not possess any rights as this document clearly states.

What do we mean by ‘young people’?

IPPF defines young people as all people between 10 and 24 years of age. This is the same definition used by the World Health Organization. IPPF recognizes that young people are very diverse and strives to deliver services and programmes that reflect and respect their diversity.

What do we mean when we say ‘all young people are sexual beings’?

Sexuality is a central part of being human for people of all ages, all around the world. Whether or not they are sexually active, young people have feelings, thoughts and experiences relating to their sexual identity, sexual behaviour, sexual organs, etc.

Sexuality is about a lot more than having sex. It is about the social rules, economic structures, political battles and religious ideologies that surround physical expressions of intimacy and the relationships within which such intimacy takes place.”  As external factors have a profound influence on young people and their sexual behaviour throughout their lives, it is in the interest of young people themselves, as well as the public good, to create an environment that is supportive and inclusive of young people’s sexuality.

Do young people have the right to sex?

Like other sexual rights, the right to enjoy sex derives from international agreements that state people have the right to pursue a “satisfying and safe sex life” (ICPD Programme of Action). IPPF is committed to implementing the IPPF Youth Manifesto and to promoting, protecting and upholding the sexual and reproductive health rights of all young people, including the rights:

• to information and education on sexuality
• to comprehensive sexual and reproductive health services, including a full range of contraceptives
• to pleasure and confidence in relationships and all aspects of their sexuality
• to participate fully as active members of society

Do young people and children of all ages have the same rights?

Children and young people of all ages have the same rights, More
