Following the vote in the FEMM Committee, the new version of the Noichl report on the EU Strategy for equality between women and men post 2015 (2014/2152(INI)) is now available on the European Parliament’s website. It will be submitted to vote in plenary session on 9 June 2015.
Under the pretext of “equality”, the motion covers includes wide array of ethically unacceptable postions.
Here are some of its highlights:
( The European Parliament…)
52. calls on the Commission to assist Member States in ensuring … safe and legal abortion and contraception; [so Member States should not only legalize abortion on demand, but also ensure its availability…]
68. …emphasises the right to voluntarily access family planning services, including safe and legal abortion-related care; [abortion is not family planning, but the destruction of “un-planned” children]
72. Urges that the provision of humanitarian aid by the EU and the Member States should not be subject to restrictions imposed by other partner donors regarding … access to … abortion;
Medically assisted reproduction (including for single persons and same-sex couples):
59. Calls on the Commission to encourage Member States to promote (medical) fertility support and to end discrimination in access to fertility treatment and assisted reproduction; [“end discrimination” is code for allowing the access of single persons and gay couples – including through sperm and eg cell donation and surrogacy…]
55. Reiterates its call on the Commission and the World Health Organisation to withdraw gender identity disorders from the list of mental and behavioural disorders, and to ensure a non-pathologising reclassification in the negotiations on the 11th version of the International Classification of Diseases (ICD-11), and to ensure that gender diversity in childhood is not pathologised; [so the disorder should be removed from the list of disorders… the drafter seems to assume that political ideologies should enjoy supremacy over science…]
Brainwashing & promotion of bogus “science”:
67. Calls on the Commission to assist Member States in the establishment of university chairs in gender studies and feminist research;
Calls on the Commission to promote the use of gender mainstreaming, gender budgeting and gender impact assessment in all areas and for each legislative proposal at all levels of governance, and thus ensure specific gender equality targets; asks the Court of Auditors also to incorporate the gender perspective when assessing the execution of the Union budget; asks Member States similarly to introduce the gender dimension in their budgets in order to analyse government programmes and policies, their impact on the allocation of resources and their contribution to equality between men and women; [This would mean in practice that Mrs. Noichl’s gender ideology should be the supreme guiding principle for the EU, which would effectively be prohibited from taking any action that fails to promote that ideology…]
The draft evidences once more that – following the demise of Marxism – Feminism and Gender ideology are the new ideological shibboleths of the political left. The center and center-right parties should not be so naive as to buy into that radical ideology. As one hears, the EPP is currently drafting an alternative resolution.
