THE SERVANT GENERAL
ASSAULTS ON FAITH, FAMILY AND LIFE
EUROPEAN PARLIAMENT ABORTION CAMPAIGN
February 11, 2017
The powers-that-be in the world, including the UN, the EU,
and the former Obama government, are all-out to promote abortion.
EU and UN bureaucrats are moving rapidly into the indoctrination
of children, to expose them to liberal sexual ideology at
earlier and earlier ages.
European Parliament Abortion Campaign Seeks
to Indoctrinate Children
NEW YORK, February 10 (C-Fam) - The
European Parliament has launched a campaign to promote abortion
among the continent’s adolescents.
At a recent interactive conference, “My Body, My Rights”,
a campaign entitled “#AllofUs” sought to indoctrinate
future European leaders. The Socialist and Democrats’
Progressive Alliance Group and the Alliance of Liberals and
Democrats organized the event for Europe Group (ALDE), the
Greens and European United Left (GUE).
The campaign’s explicit
mission is to “mobilize support for the right to access
modern contraception and safe & legal abortion”
under the auspices of “sexual and reproductive health
and reproductive rights” (SRHR). This
event was described as “addressing the challenges related
to young adolescents’ sexual and reproductive health.”
The conference claimed to be a “timely opportunity to
discuss different strategies aimed at improving young people’s
access to information, contraception and advice services,
by developing youth-friendly health services, and empowering
young people to participate in the decisions that affect their
claim referred to the recent reinstatement of the Mexico City
Policy by U.S. President Donald Trump, which subtracted millions
of dollars from the international pro-abortion industry. It
also referred to the multiplication and increased support
for pro-life movements and pro-life leaders throughout Europe.
The conference agenda stated, “Not only in the U.S.,
where an ultra-conservative vice president wants to turn back
time. Also in Europe we are witnessing a severe conservative
backlash in the SRHR area for example in Hungary, Poland,
the UK and other countries.”
The reference to “youth empowerment” suggested
going beyond the already-controversial right of adolescents
to access abortion freely and confidentially.
Quoting WHO and its ongoing regional consultation on the development
of the European action plan for SRHR 2017-2021, the draft
program of the conference mentioned the “importance
of investing in a comprehensive and appropriate sexuality
education for children available to all age groups.”
It reported “the need of including children and adolescents
as well as their parents, through an inclusive
European policy strategy that embraces the importance of sexual
and reproductive health and rights.”
Along with representatives of abortion groups, a few members
of the European Parliament took an active part in the conference.
These members included Terry Reinkte, a German member of the
Green Party, Malin Björk, a Swedish member of the European
United Left, and Maria Arena, a Belgian member of the Socialist
and Democrats’ Progressive Alliance Group (S&D).
While their presence proves the
persistent commitment of the European left to the promotion
of abortion as a human right, including among the youth,
it is worth noting that each of them sits on the European
Committee on Women’s Rights and Gender Equality (FEMM).
At FEMM’s request, the Directorate-General for Internal
Policy of the European Parliament recently published a study
on “Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights”.
Last week, a young French politician, Marion Maréchal-Le
Pen, provided pushback saying that abortion cannot be considered
a form of “empowerment.” Speaking at the French
Parliament, Maréchal-Le Pen condemned a new bill that
seeks to limit the French people’s freedom of expression
by banning anti-abortion websites. On a personal note, she
said that she is happy to be born “an accident.”
