The European Parliament adopted a resolution on Gendercide. Important amendments rejected.

Published: 04.10.2013

The report condemns abortion when it is based on pre-natal sex selection and recalls that the genocide based on sex is a crime and a violation of human rights. The European Parliament also calls on governments to take action for a fundamental change in public opinion in order to stop abusive behavior and violence against women.

88 MEPs reported amendments to the resolution to emphasize human dignity. Ordo Iuris, in correspondence with members of the Parliament, argued in support of the amendments at the stage of reporting and before the voting on the plenary session.

The only amendment to the resolution, which was accepted by the majority of MEPs, is the “budget amendment” (§ 41). The European Parliament asserts that, when implementing the specific clauses on the prohibition on coercion or compulsion in sexual and reproductive health matters agreed on at the Cairo International Conference on Population and Development, as well as the legally binding international human rights instruments, the acquis communautaire and the Union’s policy competencies in those matters, Union assistance should not be provided to any authority, organisation or programme which promotes, supports or participates in the management of any action which involves such human rights abuses as coercive abortion, forced sterilisation of women or men, or determination of foetal sex resulting in prenatal sex selection or infanticide.
