LIFE: EUROPEAN PLMs, THE "MOTHER THERESA OF CALCUTTA" AWARD TO JÉRÔME LEJEUNE

A posthumously-awarded prize in the name of life: the European pro-life "Mother Theresa of Calcutta" award, a sort of "Nobel prize" for life, established by the pro-life and family movements (PLMs) of all over Europe, will be awarded in Strasbourg on December 17th. The prize will be posthumously awarded to Jérôme Lejeune, who discovered trisomy-21 and was the first president of the Papal Pro-Life Academy. The initiative is one of a number of events that the European PLMs will organise from December 15th to 17th. The first one will be held in Dachau on December 15th and will be a meditation on the equality of every human being. On December 16th, Strasbourg will host a meeting of the European Union’s PLM delegates for the closing of the European Petition "for human life and dignity". On December 17th, the Strasbourg headquarters of the Council of Europe will host the awards ceremony for the posthumously-awarded prize to Lejeune, with two sessions attended by Salvatore Mancuso, president of the Ethical Committee of Policlinico Gemelli Hospital of Rome, Giuseppe Noia, professor of Prenatal Medicine at Università Cattolica of Rome, Henri Bléhaut, research director at the Jérôme Lejeune Foundation in Paris, Monica Lopez Barahona, director of the Biomedical Study Centre of Madrid, and card. Ennio Antonelli, president of the Papal Council for the Family.
