The President of Saint Lucia’s Freedom Coalition, Fremont Lawrence, has expressed concern over comprehensive sexuality education for children particularly the transgender ideology, declaring it would ultimately reach Saint Lucia.
Lawrence told Newsmaker Live on DBS Television Wednesday night that American culture impacts the Caribbean.
“My particular concern is that there is a growing agenda as far as the trans movement is concerned,” he stated.
Lawrence said he has observed an escalating attack on children as he watches television and does his research.
“Adults can do whatever they want with their bodies,” the Freedom Coalition President said.
But he expressed concern about not allowing input from parents regarding how children are taught about sex and transgender matters, telling Newsmaker Live Host Timothy Poleon that, ultimately, that would happen in the Caribbean.
“Sooner rather than later it will get to Saint Lucia,” Lawrence observed.
He compared the situation to an approaching storm, for which Saint Lucia must prepare.
“You don’t wait until the storm hits you,” Lawrence explained.
“We are putting the politicians on notice. I think we have to,” he stated regarding any legislation removing parental rights regarding children’s sexuality education.
“I honestly believe that ninety-five percent of Saint Lucians are opposed to the transgender ideology,” Lawrence said.
But he observed what he described as ‘deliberate attempts’ in the United States and Europe to indoctrinate children without parents’ knowledge.
And Lawrence felt the idea was to undermine parental authority.
