The European Parliament has been accused of trying to “criminalise” pro-life views after passing a report which describes reducing access to abortion as “violence against women and girls”.
The MEPs who authored the document denied the paper was an attack on “Christian values” or promoting a “liberal agenda”, but appeared to conflate a rise in violence against women with the election of President Trump in the U.S.
The Committee on Civil Liberties, Justice and Home Affairs (LIBE) produced the interim report, which calls on all EU member-states to “urgently” ratify a new convention on violence against women, and “recommends”:
“The EU strongly affirms that the denial of sexual and reproductive health and rights services, including safe and legal abortion, is a form of violence against women and girls.”
