The European Federation One of Us affirms that the principle of equality of all human beings demands the protection of the human being from the first moment of its existence
Brussels September 27, 2017. – Before the call in Brussels on September 28 of the march for the right to abortion by the groups that make up the so-called feminist Collective “abortion, women decide! for the right to abortion, the One of Us Federation affirms that the equality of all human beings requires the protection of the conceived as “one of us.”
Jaime Mayor Oreja, President of the Federation One of Us recalls that “it is impossible to build a society on this false right.”
For his part, Carlo Casini, Honorary President of the Federation One of Us, ask the following questions to the organizers of the march: “The conceived is a human being or a thing, a subject or an object, the conceived is” one of us “? No Answering this question is against reason. Does the principle of equality in dignity apply to all people, including the poorest, the small and the weak, or does it not refer to certain categories of human beings? Why, in case of doubt, should the principle of precaution, applied without discussion on ecological issues, be applied when discussing human life? “We must not fail to tell the truth revealed by science and reason, the truth that modern law can not betray.
The One of Us Federation states that abortion is not a woman’s exclusive or life-sustaining or abortion advocacy issue. It is a theme that appeals to all, a consequence of a social and cultural process that has generated a series of phenomena in which it seems that the only criterion that counts is the supremacy of a mentality characterized by a contempt of what the dignity of the person.
One of Us highlights the evidence of genetic science that at the very moment when the ovule is fertilized by the spermatozoon begins a life that is not that of either parent, it’s a new human being capable of developing by itself until it reaches fullness. With fertilization has begun the adventure of a new human life called to develop all its qualities to maturity.
Faced with this evidence, the One of Us Federation states that “a political regime must offer sufficient guarantees to respect the fundamental rights of the person, otherwise it loses its legitimacy. Today, we must claim from States and the rule of law, with all their historical burden of rationality and humanity, their ability to provide effective legal protection to property that deserves it – and there is no more important legal right than the right that every human being has to life and his physical integrity “.
Likewise, the One of Us Federation stresses that: “The positive legal permission of induced abortion is not a ‘progress’ but it is a ‘return’ of civilization.”
