Ulrike Lunacek (Greens), openly lesbian EP Vice-President notorious for her abortion-and-sodomy militantism, is going to leave the European Parliament. She will return to her native Austria to be the Green Party’s “lead candidate” (Spitzenkandidat) in the upcoming national elections. Continue reading
As we reported earlier this week, the Socialist/Conservative coalition government in Austria has broken down, and new elections will take place in autumn. In this situation of divorce and settling of scores, the temptation is great to use the remaining months prior to the elections in order to out-vote the former coalition partner on a number of key issues. This is why the Greens and the Liberals (NEOS) in the Austrian Parliament today launched a motion to quickly get a law on so called “marriage equality” (so called, because it would put marriage on equal fooying with sexual perversion) adopted by themselves and the openly pro-sodomy Socialists.
Juncker, Timmermans, and other EU leaders may not be happy to hear it, but in all likelyhood there will soon be another EU Member State with a Euro-skeptic government. But this time, the Member State concerned is a net payer, and the Euro-skeptic leader in question is more “hard-core” than, say, Viktor Orban or Jaroslaw Kaczynski. Continue reading
An Austrian family has found out that the two daughters have no biological relationship at all with their “father”, who had had them “made” by one of the country’s leading experts on medically assisted reproduction, according to a report by the country’s leading newspaper. It appears that the Bregenz-based clinic owned and run by Dr. Herbert Zech, President of the Austrian Society for Reproductive Medicine, mixed up the intended father’s sperm cells with somebody else’s, handing over to the parents a child that was not biologically related to the father.

The Austrian government has decided to provide for the possibility of official registration, legal documentation and naming of stillborn children. This was so far not possible. Parents who wish so, will get a birth and a death certificate with their child’s name.
This is meaningful for the parents,but it is also a step towards the legal recognition of the dignity of unborn children, as well as their quality as “persons”.
The UK referendum on leaving or remaining in the EU is now just two days away, and according to all forecasts the outcome on this divisive topic is going to be very narrow. Let us just hope that the Brits are more capable than the Austrians to organize a democratic vote. It may be worthwhile for them to follow with close attention the hearing that is currently going on before the Constitutional Court in Vienna. Continue reading
Last year we reported about an incident in Vienna in which the owner of a café politely asked to women to continue their French kisses and other expressions of mutual sexual attraction elsewhere than on his premises, as the other visitors of the café were not keen on being witnesses of this exchange of intimacies. Oh horror, two “LGBT persons” had become the victims of “discrimination”! Obviously, this lead to an outcry of the international LGBT-lobby, the vandalization of the entrance of the café, a concerted protest on Facebook, and a big “kiss-in” (which actually took on quite aggressive forms) right in front of the café. And of course, the usual politicians calling for stricter “anti-discrimination” rules. Continue reading
