Speaking at the “She Decides” conference in Brussels on 2 March, convened to raise funds for abortion-providers such as IPPF and Marie Stopes International, Neven Mimica, European Commissioner for International Cooperation and Development, stated that the EU Commission will keep using “our funds” for family planning services around the world, which he explained includes so-called “safe abortion”.

The Daily Mail today has a well-researched report on how Marie Stopes, one of Europe’s biggest abortion providers, circumvents and disrespects all legal provisions that supposedly ensure that abortions take place only under closely defined circumstances.
This is once more proof of the abortion industry’s shameless and cynical disrespect for legal norms that, though already far too permissive, pretend to give a minimum f protection both to unborn children and their mothers.

Jean-Claude Juncker has announced that he will not seek a second five-year term as EU Commission President when his current mandate ends. Following the departure of Martin Schulz as European Parliament President last month, the announcement gives the EU an opportunity to reform, free of the arch-federalist pair. Continue reading
For quite a while now, representatives of the EU and its institutions have relentlessly expressed their “concern” over the political situation in Hungary and Poland, accusing the respective governments of undermining what is vaguely described as the “rule of law”.
