Katalin Novak and the UN General Assembly

Katalin Novak, the President of Hungary, utilized her speech at the UN General Assembly to criticize what she perceives as “anti-family” values. She had previously earned favor from the LGBTQ+ community by vetoing a bill considered inhumane.

Demographic Decline vs Climate Change

Novak expressed her view that demographic decline due to low birth rates is a greater threat to humanity than global warming, a sentiment previously voiced by Elon Musk. She emphasized the importance of procreation and passing the Earth to future generations.

Parental Rights and Family Values

The president insisted that the right to raise children belongs to parents, not the state or other organizations. She stated that pro-family forces must stand up for their values and interests, especially against what she sees as an “anti-family” and “anti-child” ideological offensive.

Hungarian Values and the LGBTQ+ Community

The article also mentions that Hungary already has a poor reputation regarding LGBTQ+ rights, having ended legal recognition of transgender people and banned discussion of LGBTQ+ themes in schools and media. The Hungarian constitution defines and protects marriage as an institution between a man and a woman.

Conclusion

Although Katalin Novak had previously blocked a law allowing the reporting of same-sex families to local authorities, her recent “anti-family” statements are not surprising but are certainly disappointing. These statements reflect an ongoing tension between conservative values and LGBTQ+ rights in Hungary.
