EU PARLIAMENT: HUMAN RIGHTS IN THE WORLD, VOTING ON RESOLUTION WITH "RIGHT TO ABORTION"” “” “

(Sir Europe – Strasbourg) – The resolution that will be voted on today by the European Parliament about human rights in the world has a few ambiguous areas. Number 134 of the section about "the right of women and girls" reads: "It welcomes the EU’s support to the UN resolutions about gender issues, especially the eradication of violence against women and girls, the discrimination of women, and the role of freedom of expression and opinion in women’s emancipation, as well as to the UN statements on forced and early marriage and on female genital mutilation". But number 136 "deplores the fact the bodies of women and girls, especially in connection with their sexual and reproductive health and the attendant rights, are still an ideological battlefield", and "the EU and its member states are called to acknowledge the inalienable rights of women and girls to physical integrity and independent decision-making, not least the right to have access to voluntary family planning and safe, lawful, abortion".
