Life protection

Ordo Iuris Institute is committed to upholding the unquestionable value of human life from conception to natural death. We demand an unambiguous affirmation of the constitutional principles ensuring the legal protection of life for every human being. Following the constitutional case-law, we emphasise that there can be no protection of human dignity, unless sufficient foundations have been created for the protection of life.

We are fully determined to halt the progressive erosion of the institutions of national and international law, which, in the intention of their creators, were meant to uphold the inviolability of human dignity and the right to life. We are monitoring the authorities, which, having forgotten the lessons of history, usurp for themselves the right to indicate which "life is not worthy of living", deprived of the absolute protection of the State.

We protect our country against the trends that consider abortion, artificial in vitro insemination or euthanasia, i.e. activities inherently connected with the annihilation of human life as "human rights".

Our lawyers defend pro-life activists courageously proclaiming the truth about the bloody and brutal nature of abortion techniques, support emerging civil movements for the protection of life, participate in the national legislative process and prepare numerous analyses, proposals and memoranda addressed to international organisations.

Supreme Court ruling on the display of anti-abortion banners

The Supreme Court upheld a cassation appeal in the case of Dr. Bawer Aondo-Akaa, a prolife activist defended by Ordo Iuris lawyers. A cassation appeal was filed by the Public Prosecutor General. The reason for his previous conviction was the display of posters showing the effects of abortion. The District Court considered this to be a prank designed to cause scandal in a public place, i.e. an act that fulfills the features of Art. 51 § 1 of the Code of Petty Offenses.
