The draft law maintains the basic 14-week limit on abortion on demand. Its main thrust is to remove safeguards for women such as the 3-day reflection period, and to force public doctors to perform abortions.
In the days following the centre’s opening, the Dator Clinic sent out several Tweets and retweets calling Refugio ProVida “an assault centre.” Some tweets also stated, “we cannot allow this” and “please do something.”
Recent abortion laws allow the moral supremacist to drive a dagger through the very notion that our rights, including the right to life, are given to us by God. Separating personhood—a legislative definition—from life has given government full jurisdiction over our rights.
The new law, which criminalises pro-life advocates who are caught within close proximity of abortion clinics, is expected to be immediately challenged in the country’s constitutional court. Legal experts assert its questionable legality and impossible prosecution.
Charging £85.00 for the virtual consultation and an added £475.00 for the pills themselves, the decision to make it permanently easier to kill unborn children by such means is a further boon to the Marie Stopes business model.
For Northern Irish Christians, this move by lawmakers is a source of consternation. As they face a ban on their prayer vigils outside abortion clinics, the message is clear: it is they who are being targeted.
These attacks on the rights of the unborn child are not isolated initiatives. They are well thought out and coordinated. A survey by the European Centre for Law and Justice reveals the existence of a real pro-abortion lobby within the European institutions.
Only 59 out of 577 MPs were present in the hemicycle of the National Assembly for what is nevertheless a crucial issue, since it is a question of deciding the life or death of hundreds of unborn children.
Before the final report from the Conference on the Future of Europe is published in the spring, the European Federation hopes to gather citizens from across the EU in Brussels and call for the protection of all human life, beginning at the moment of conception.
Government says that a person is not alive until deep into the pregnancy. The motive is instrumental: when we legally sever the beginning of life from conception, we allow for another moral value to be elevated above life itself. That moral value works as an ulterior motive for the legal definition of life.
Emmanuel Macron displayed his ambition to promote European civilization and its culture, through a “common project respectful of the singularities and identities of each [nation].” In the exchange with French deputies, he recalled that he has never been opposed to promoting the Christian roots of Europe. The deputy from Rassemblement National attacked him: “Your Europe is 60 years old, ours is 3,000! You have made Europe the backyard of Washington, the prey of Beijing, the doormat of Erdogan, and the hotel of Africa.”
The blocking of the bill in the Senate should not prevent its adoption at the second reading in the National Assembly. The new law extending the legal deadline for abortion should come into force before the end of the term in February 2022.
The March for Life, which brings together most of the pro-life associations in France, will be held in Paris on Sunday, January 16th, three days before the bill is considered by the Senate. The demonstrators hope to influence the senators by their mobilization and determination.
The possible future President of European Parliament Roberta Metsola is a perfect product of the Brussels system. But she is also known to be a mother of four and to defend conservative positions on the issue of abortion. That’s why she is already the subject of much criticism.
The three parties (SPD, Greens, FDP) that form new Chancellor Olaf Scholz’s government have long opposed the current rules, but were hampered by the center-right Union bloc of ex-Chancellor Angela Merkel, which is now in opposition.
