URGENT

The European Parliament will vote on the Estrela report on sexual and reproductive rights and health (abortion) on Tuesday 10 December.

The Estrela-resolution contributes to make abortion and population control the political priority of the international development policy after 2015. This resolution also promotes the pro-abortion-lobby getting more money from EU tax payers.

To push these goals, the Estrela report says that abortion is a human rights concern yet no national or international law states abortion is a human right, uses the myth of backstreet abortion to claim moral high ground, calls for the rejection and overriding of all national pro-life laws in the EU and worldwide. The EP also attacks the conscientious objection of all medical staff and attacks faith based hospitals.

Worse: European Parliament targets children and teens! The Estrela report calls for minors to act as sex education propagandists in the EU and in candidate countries. Fathers and mothers are disqualified as "other stakeholders" and are no longer recognized as first responsible of their own children. The EP calls for compulsory sex education for primary school children onwards, wants to make sex education a human rights concern, dictates that the schools must convey a positive view of LGBTI persons, says that States must provide adolescent-friendly abortion services in schools accessible without the consent of parents. The Estrela report does not respect the family!

This Estrela resolution is voted on the International Human Rights Day. This offers a perfect platform for the European Parliament to show its respect for the human right of all women, mothers and the unborn, and to show that the EU is indeed respecting the international human right.

This is the second attempt of the European Parliament Women's Rights Committee to overstep competencies and to breach the subsidiarity principle: abortion and education are not a competency of the EU and the EU-Parliament has no right to decide on these matters.

Two political groups (EFD and EPP) tabled alternative motions for a resolution.

MEPs should first vote in favour of the alternative motions for a resolution and reject the Estrela report.

Petition to: Members of European Parliament

Dear MEP:

On 10 December, the well-known Estrela Report on “Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights” will be voted again. There is not much change with regard to the previous motion for a resolution.

The Estrela resolution is extremely dangerous. It contributes to make abortion and population control the political priority of the international development policy after 2015. This resolution also helps the pro-abortion-lobby getting more money from EU tax payers. This resolution shows tht the EU does not respect Member States and national legislation. The Estrela-resolution shows that the EU does not accept subsidiarity.

The Estrela report says that abortion is a human rights concern yet no national or international law states abortion is a human right, uses the myth of backstreet abortion to claim moral high ground, calls for the rejection and overriding of all national pro-life laws in the EU and worldwide. The EP also attacks the conscientious objection of all medical staff and attacks faith based hospitals.

Worse: European Parliament targets children and teens! The Estrela report calls for minors to act as sex education propagandists in the EU and in candidate countries. Fathers and mothers are disqualified as "other stakeholders" and are no longer recognized as first responsible of their own children. The EP calls for compulsory sex education for primary school children onwards, wants to make sex education a human rights concern, dictates that the schools must convey a positive view of LGBTI persons, says that States must provide adolescent-friendly abortion services in schools which are accessible without the consent of parents or guardians. The Estrela report does not respect the family!

This is the second attempt of the European Parliament women's rights committee to overstep competencies and to breach the subsidiarity principle: abortion and education are not in the competency of the EU. Parliament has no right to decide on these matters.

Please reject the Estrela report and vote in favour of the two alternative motions for a resolution!

Sincerely,
[Your Name]
