Quod licet Iovi, non licet bovi. While the liberal left in Europe is in a never-ending state of moral panic over the US Administration’s decision to reinstate the Mexico City Policy, or over Russia’s and Hungary‘s respective decisions to exercise a somewhat tighter control over foreign-funded NGOs (which more often than not are George Soros’s or the European Commission’s sock-puppets), Sweden has now announced its own anti-NGO gag rule, pledging to stop giving aid to any organisations that “neither perform nor actively promote abortion as a method of family planning in other nations”.
If applied to the letter, this would mean that Sweden will not give any support to any NGO, except those promoting baby-slaughtering “as a method of family planning” – which is in direct and radical contradiction even to the ICPD Plan for Action. Child murder is now, it appears, Sweden´s one and only foreign policy objective.
Given its hysteria over Hungary, we are waiting for the European Commission’s outcry over Sweden. Will it ever come? Or is there some kind of double standard?
