Another ruling against Poland’s pro-life laws from EU court
International abortion lobbyists in Europe are celebrating a ruling handed down this week from the European Court of Human Rights (ECHR), accusing Poland of violating an international human rights treaty by maintaining legal protections for the unborn, reports LifeSiteNews.com.
The abortion lobby group, Federation for Women and Family Planning, issued a press release today expressing their “great satisfaction” at the ruling. The group admitted that the case had been engineered by a coalition of international abortion lobbyists.
“The R.R. case was conducted by our organization in cooperation with the Warsaw University Law Clinic, supported by the Center for Reproductive Rights. Att. Monika Gąsiorowska and Irmina Kotkiuk, who conducted the case at the Court, are members of the Federation’s Network of Lawyers,” they wrote.
The group said that the ruling is “a great success in our fight for respecting the women’s reproductive rights in Poland.”
In the case the plaintiff, Mrs. R. R., complained to the court about the refusal by her physician to prescribe prenatal genetic tests within the legal time frame for abortion.
The ECHR ruled that the Polish government had not provided the woman with a possibility to exercise her fundamental right to information. Furthermore, the court stated, the Polish State does not provide an effective mechanism for exercising this right.
