A website promoted by the government health system in Scotland touted as a “safe space” for teens to learn about sex is condoning underage sexual relationships.
The age of consent in the United Kingdom is 16, yet the website advised a 14-year-old girl considering a sexual relationship with a 16-year-old boy that if the act was consensual, it was “unlikely to cause a problem,” according to the U.K.’s Christian Institute.
The organization called for an urgent review of the website, which technically is encouraging statutory rape. . .
The website’s writers also responded to a 15-year-old who “asked about having sex with an 18-year-old.”
“If you become sexually intimate together then (the 18-year-old) is breaking the law, although as long as you consent and are not being pressured into anything then it is unlikely anything will be pursued,” the site said. (Read more from “Why Is a Government Website Encouraging Underage Sex?” HERE)
