ONE OF US PRO-LIFE CAMPAIGN IS HITTING THE HEIGHTS ACROSS EUROPE

Posted on October 22, 2013 at 8:01 AM
The 'One of Us' Initiative Logo
 
You may not have noticed it in the mainstream press but a European initiative aimed at protecting the respect, dignity and integrity of the human embryo has achieved a colossal 1.3 million signatures across Europe in support of its aims as we approach a November 1st deadline.
 
The figure is significant as it means the initiative is – after passing the 1 million signatories mark - now entitled to invite the European Commission to propose legislation around the protection of the human embryo.
 
As the One of Us website explains, “Based on the definition of the human embryo as the beginning of the development of the human being, which was given in a recent ECJ judgment (Brüstle vs. Greenpeace), “One of Us” asks the EU to end the financing of activities which presuppose the destruction of human embryos, in particular in the areas of research, development aid and public health.”
 
It’s a significant show of support for the life of a human being from the moment of conception, and a significant show of disapproval of the act of abortion.  Europe is speaking up for the unborn child and with the number of signatures received there will be no hiding place for those in power across the continent.  They simply have to listen to the people.
 
The following countries have already surpassed their expected number of signatures supporting the initiative: Austria, Germany, Spain, France, Croatia, Hungary, Italy, Lithuania, Luxembourg, Malta, Netherlands, Poland, Portugal, Romania, and Slovakia.  Unfortunately, countries such as the UK and Ireland are still lagging behind but thankfully they appear to be in the minority!
 
The One of Us campaign is, of course, still counting on your support and campaigners now hope to achieve 1.5 million signatures!  So if you haven’t yet signed the petition please do so now by clicking this link: One of Us petition.
