European Parliament Draft Resolution promotes abortion and attacks conscientious objection

Published: 17.10.2013

A resolution on “Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights” (SRHR) will be debated and put to a vote on the 22nd October in the European Parliament.

This resolution, introduced by the Portuguese Socialist Deputy Edite Estrela, was adopted by the Committee on “Women’s Rights and Gender Equality” on the 18th September.

The text was written by Vicky Claeys, President of the European Section of the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF), who publicly claimed to have written the document in her 19th June IPPF presentation to the European Parliament on women’s access to modern methods of contraception.

This resolution promotes abortion as a fundamental right, attacks the right to conscientious objection, the rights of parents, and calls on the European Union to fund abortion in its Foreign and Development Aid Policy.  This text calls for more abortions and less rights for conscientious objectors and parents; it recommends nothing in relation to the prevention of abortion or support for pregnant women.

This draft resolution opposes head-on the European Citizens' Initiative One of Us which is supported by more than 1.2 million people in Europe, specifically asking the European Union to stop funding abortion and industrial and scientific practices which involve the destruction of human embryos.

The draft resolution goes beyond the power and competences of the European Union which has repeatedly recognized that "Considering the ethical, social and cultural dimension of abortions, it is for Member States to develop and implement their policies and legal frameworks. The Commission does not have the intention to complement national health policies in this respect." (Answer given by Mr Dalli on behalf of the Commission, 30th April 2012).

The European People's Party (EPP), the majority party of the centre-right, has not yet firmly opposed itself to this text. We must write the president, French MEP Joseph Daul, a member of the UMP (French centre-right party), and ask him to the reject the resolution.

Ordo Iuris to the UN: instead of safeguarding, abortion destroys life!

The UN Human Rights Committee intends to rely on international safeguards of the right to life to establish a “pseudo-right” to abortion and euthanasia. In its new draft General Comment to Article 6 of the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights, the Committee divests the youngest children of legal protection and forces States to legalize euthanasia. Ordo Iuris Institute has launched the petition to exhort citizens to protect human dignity against the actions by left-wing activists who have colonized UN structures.
