URGENT Ask European Parliament committee to vote against anti-life/anti-family report
Today and tomorrow morning, members of the European Parliament's Women's Rights and Gender Equality Committee (otherwise known as FEMM) will attempt to resurrect the Estrela report, a radical anti-life and anti-family report sent back to the FEMM committee by the European Parliament's plenary session exactly a month ago - see See SPUC's action alert of 16 October to know why the report is bad and therefore must be rejected: Tomorrow morning (Tuesday 26 November) the FEMM committee will vote on whether to approve the report and send it forward again to the next month's European Parliament's plenary session. Please email as many members of the FEMM committee as possible to urge them to vote against the Estrela report. > Read more and act now
