The political party’s youth wing voted on the motion at a meeting in Stockholm Cecilia Johnsson, president of LUF Stockholm, told Aftonbladet counter-incest legislation amounted to “morality law”, adding: “These laws protect no one right now”.
“I understand that [incest] can be considered unusual and disgusting, but the law cannot stem from it being disgusting”.
The LUF also voted to support the legalisation of sexual acts with a corpse, on the condition that the person consented while they were still alive.
Ms Johnsson said: “You should get to decide what happens to your body after you die, and if it happens to be that someone wants to bequeath their body to a museum or for research, or if they want to bequeath to someone for sex, then it should be okay.”
However, The central Liberal People’s Party disagreed, with spokesperson Adam Alfredsson telling Expressen the proposals were “nothing like the mother party endorses.”
“Incest is and should remain illegal,” he added. “We think it will continue to be illegal to use a dead man’s body in a sexual way.”
Also, a former Swedish Liberal MP, Carl B Hamilton, took to Facebook to dismiss the youth wing’s proposals as a publicity stunt concocted by “nitwits”.
