Family policy could move to the Greens in the event of a traffic light coalition. The German bestselling author and publicist Brigit Kelle (46) warns against this. In books such as “Then close your blouse”, “GenderGaga” and, most recently, “Noch normal”, the mother of four stood up against gender ideology and feminism, while at the same time campaigning for the traditional family. Now Kelle, who is also a member of the CDU, is warning of the consequences of a traffic light coalition.
The deconstruction of the family had long since begun, but this trend would now accelerate. In the new coalition are the representatives of those lobbyists who want to oust the traditional family. What left-wing politicians praise as adapting the law to new social realities, Kelle regards as a lever to create new realities – against the existing society.
“The bourgeois family policy has had its day,” writes Kelle in one Comment in Focus magazine. “The true social center, namely the majority of the cultural and statistical normal case of father-mother-child has gotten out of sight. The ‘exploratory paper’ of the probable traffic light coalition made up of the SPD, Greens and FDP only confirms trends that have already been identified. “
These developments have years in advance. Kelle refers, for example, to the “Working Group on Parent Law”, which the then Minister of Justice Heiko Maas set up in 2015. Their 130-page final report from 2017 recommended the introduction of the term “legal parent-child mapping” and using it instead of the “misleading” term of biological descent – “as a substitute for natural parenthood”. That means a radical paradigm shift, says Kelle, because “from now on parenting should as a rule no longer be determined by facts, but by contracts that can be resolved”.
The paper had concrete effects. “Since then, numerous political actors have been referring to the results of these democratically unauthorized ‘expert recommendations’ for a new parentage law. The legislative initiatives developed following 2017 read like an uprooting program for future generations ”.
Kelle lists: “Co-motherhood for two women without naming the father, four-parenthood (as the FDP would like it to be), right of adoption for homosexuals, legalization of egg donation, embryo donation and, for the time being, ‘non-commercial’ surrogacy, financed by health insurance Assisted sperm donation for single women, new self-defined gender entries from ‘non-binary’ to ‘diverse’ for birth certificates and passports, children’s rights in the constitution, gender change from 14 even without parental consent and, last but not least, as an essential component of the replacement of the current transsexual law through a new ‘self-determination law’, in which everyone ‘defines’ their gender at the registry office without a doctor and therapist. Politicians would then finally say goodbye to biological factors that determine gender and parenthood. “
Maas demanded at the time that the law had to be “adapted to social realities”. Rather, Kelle thinks it’s about creating a new reality. She sees herself confirmed by the exploratory paper of the traffic light. There, Maas’ sentence is repeated almost verbatim as the justification for an adjustment for “family law, the right of descent and the transsexual law”.
But that’s not all. “But also for the new regulations in reproductive medicine, the introduction of ‘new communities of responsibility’ and an undefined new ‘pact for coexistence’ that they want to make possible. The paper says almost nothing about the family, but about a ‘restart of family support’ and it is noticeable that children are ‘independent of parents’ not only with children’s rights in the Basic Law, but also with a basic financial provision for children, a right to vote from 16, all-day care from daycare to school and parent-independent BAföG (‘Lebenschancen-BAföG’). No question about it, apart from the legal guardians, they are now being targeted as a group of voters. Does the ‘father state’ even need biological parents? “
