The youth wing of the Swedish Liberal party has filed a motion to legalize necrophilia and incest.
Liberal Youth of Sweden said that just because it is ‘viewed as unusual and disgusting’, does not mean that the deprived sexual acts should be illegal.
They want to legalize sex between two consenting siblings over the age of 15, and sex with a corpse if there is a written permission made before the person died.
‘We don’t like morality laws in general, and this legislation is not protecting anyone right now,’ Cecilia Johnsson, Liberal Youth chairperson in Stockholm told Aftonbladet.
‘We are a youth wing and one of our tasks is to think one step further.
‘I understand that it [necrophilia and incest] can be seen as unusual and disgusting by legislation can not be based on it being disgusting.’
The youth wing of the Liberals in Sweden voted to support legalisation incest and necrophilia at their annual meeting last weekend.
The suggested motion stated that two siblings, over the age of 15, who both consent, should be allowed to have sex.
It also said that if a person has stated in a written will that they consent to someone having sex with their corpse, this should also be legal.
‘It should be your own decision what happens with your body after you die, and if that happens to be that you want to bequeath your remains to a museum or to science, or if you want to bequeath your remains to someone to sleep with them, then that should be ok,’ Ms Johnsson adds.
The controversial announcement was quickly criticised by the Liberals, and several senior figures within the mother party.
Former Liberal MP Carl B Hamilton lashed out at the youth wing, calling them ‘nitwits’, accusing them of craving publicity over politics.
‘Liberal Youth of Sweden focuses on publicity, but hardly the issues that determines our, and Sweden’s future,’ he wrote on a Facebook group for Liberal party members.
‘Surely, you must understand that people are lauging at your liberalism, you nitwits?
‘And what other challenges facing society is on the top 100-list for Stockholm’s Liberal Youth? Sex with hippos?’
A press spokesperson for the Liberals said on Monday the mother party does not back the youth wing, and wants both necrophilia and incest to remain illegal.
