The EU 'Democracy' Scandal That Just Won't Go Away

Posted on August 6, 2014 at 7:37 AM
If you regularly follow Scots Catholic you will know that the EU Commission recently used its power of veto over a pro-life petition to protect life from conception.  The petition had gathered the requisite 1 million signatories (it actually amassed a total of 2 million signatures) from at least seven member countries to guarantee a legislative debate on the matter, or at least that's what they thought.
The European Commission has a rather undemocratic power of veto over such matters and decided that no legislative debate on the protection of life would take place.  What is interesting about this is that there has only ever been one other occasion where this supposedly democratic process has been used (a water rights petition which, strangely enough, was not vetoed) and that petition only managed to gather in just over 1 million signatories.
For some reason the European Commission did not want to listen to the voice of two million of its citizens.  Further and more worrying is that it didn't want to abide by its own democratic process. 
The scandal of this should not be lost on anyone.  Whether you are pro-life or not this shocking behaviour by European governors should stick in the throat.  It is dictatorial and shows that the EU is not the democratic organisation it so vociferously claims to be.  Thankfully the One of Us campaign is not letting this go and neither it should; an appeal has been lodged and we will keep you updated on progress.
