Stop Tarabella relaunching Estrela! No EU support to abortion
The Tarabella report is a part of the "Estrela report puzzle" and aims at promoting a "right to abortion" through a European Parliament resolution.
On 10 December 2013 the European Parliament rejected the so called Estrela Report on “Sexual and reproductive health and rights” (SRHR). In its place the Members of the European Parliament adopted a resolution that reaffirmed the principle of subsidiarity and clearly stated that “
The message is clear: the EU is not competent to decide on issues such as abortion or sexual education in schools, it is a national competence and by no means not something to be decided on in Brussels.
Hundreds of thousands citizens opposed the Estrela Report in 2013! An important victory in favour of human dignity, subsidiarity and popular expression!

Mr Tarabella is leading an attempt to convince the European Parliament to accept the following provision:
Mr Tarabella’s move is incoherent as the European Parliament already stated that there is no EU competence on the issue of abortion. Nevertheless, during the meetings of the European Parliament Women’s Rights and Gender Equality Committee he has stated his determination to promote a “right to abortion”.

Don't let Tarabella relaunch Estrela!
FAFCE invites you to sign this petition to send a strong and united signal from citizens to the European Parliament ahead of the votes that will take place first in the Women’s Rights and Gender Equality Committee on 20 January 2015, then during the European Parliament plenary.
