European Parliament again rejects pro-abortion Estrela report, SPUC thanks supporters

Following the rejection of the pro-abortion Estrela report by the European Parliament plenary session, SPUC has thanked its supporters and colleagues for helping secure the pro-life victory. John Smeaton, SPUC's chief executive, said: "The Estrela report represents one of the most concerted recent attempts to get the European Parliament to exceed its competence and try to impose abortion on European Union member-states. Today's rejection of the Estrela report proves that peaceful and prayerful grassroots lobbying by pro-lifers can have a real positive impact in the political arena. I wish to thank SPUC's supporters at home and our colleagues in Europe for saving lives today." The "Report on Sexual and Reproductive Health and Rights", put forward by Edite Estrela MEP, suggested that abortion is a human right, called for compulsory sex education for all children in and outside of school, and attacked conscientious objection for healthcare professionals.
