Some members of the Luxembourg Parliament are attempting to sweep away the last remaining restrictions on abortion by inserting a so-called “social indicator” in the list of legal justifications for abortion. The group SOSvita warns that the Luxembourg Parliament plans to create “a comprehensive liberalization of abortion before 15 July 2010.”
Pat Buckley, European officer for the UK’s Society for the Protection of Unborn Children said, “The Luxembourg Members of Parliament in 2008 already supported the expansion of the culture of death when they forcibly introduced euthanasia against the will of Grand Duke Henry. They will continue this expansion unless they are stopped.”
Paul von Oldenberg of the Fédération Pro Europa Christiana (FPEC), wrote in an email to pro-life leaders, “The introduction of a so-called ‘social indicator’ is nothing more than abortion on demand” that “leaves the unborn child totally unprotected.”
“The politicians say they only wish to reduce the number of abortions. To prohibit abortion absolutely is the only way to stop the shedding of the blood of innocent children"
SOSvita is circulating an e-petition asking for support against the proposed changes. Please visit SOSvita and sign the e-petition.
